Overnewton Anglican Community College (OACC) has been associated with the Chibobo Orphange in Zambia for over 10 years. In conjunction with St Mary’s in Sunbury, the community has raised funds, sponsored children and completed projects on visits to Zambia every second year.
Chibobo is a community in northern remote Zambia. The Orphanage was set up by the Help Ministries Project and 63 orphans live in the centre. They are cared for by a dedicated group of staff who are aware of the fragility and vulnerability of young people in Africa today. Their vision is to provide not just a stable and healthy lifestyle but one that enriches the minds and hearts of the young people they care for; thus the emphasis on Christian values and education is paramount.
