One of the key Christian leaders in the Serenje area is Pastor Navice Kalunga. His efforts have helped establish scores of churches in and around the region. Pastor Navice maintains an ongoing network with these churches, offering help and training for the pastors of these churches. And everywhere Pastor Navice goes, there are orphans to care for. Navice and his fellow pastors find themselves reaching many for Christ. Yet simultaneously finding themselves stewarding a burgeoning number of orphans - and the almost impossible odds of feeding and sheltering these children on their own. Brookside has established a strong relationship with the Hope Center by sending teams of Brooksiders to help train the local pastors and to distribute food to additional orphans in the outlying rural regions – “the bush” -- beyond Serenje.
