Nothing that happens in ELI is by chance. Because of your prayers and support, there has been a blossoming of literacy, education, economic opportunity, and the gospel throughout Susu. Projects that may seem small, such as reader glasses, local language books, the purchase of a pair of goats, really do make a difference! Whether small or big, each project impacts lives. To get involved and be involved, please see a listing of other pending projects below.
Susu Village, Zambia

A New Home for the Kids

The newest twin baby goats, Priscilla and Aquila have joined the Susu Village herd and several more kids are scheduled to arrive soon! This is exciting news as more specialized milking goats are needed, but the increasing number of babies is causing the existing goat barn to be bursting at the seams. A better location for the kids has been found, but a new barn with strong fencing is needed. The cost for this important project, (which will benefit so many children) is $1,700. Will you please help us build A New Home for the Kids?


Drive Sweet Susu Produce

Agricultural projects have been successful! ELI recently purchased a four-ton truck that was needed to haul produce to market. The truck has arrived and is being used to sell the produce grown in Susu.

New Borehole

In early 2021, Elizabeth's Library Zambia purchased an additional 100 acres of land for the expansion and diversification of crops. A new borehole and solar panels to power water pumps are needed for irrigation.

Total cost is $10,000.

Library Bookshelves

More than 200 people per month are visiting the new Susu Library. Additional furniture is needed, particularly bookshelves, to keep up with the demand and growth of the book collection.

Two locally sourced bookshelf units cost $600.


Sewing Machines

In early 2021 the Susu Ladies Literacy Group received three pedal sewing machines and enough supplies to start a sewing training program. The success of this program means that three additional sewing machines are needed.

Each new machine and transport cost $250.

Book Boxes

Twice each year, book boxes from the US are sent to Zambia and Malawi. Donated and purchased books are carefully selected and sent to be part of each libraries' collection. Each book is treasured!

You can sponsor one box for $50.00.


Local Language Bibles

Local language Bibles written in Chichewa for Malawi and Bemba for Zambia are requested. Bibles can be purchased locally and cost $20.

Facebook Birthday Fundraisers

Several ELI supporters used their birthdays as an opportunity to meet a specific need. Click here to read more about their great ideas.

Lana celebrated a milestone birthday two years ago, by asking friends and family to purchase a goat or two for Susu Village, Zambia. A goat barn was built and eighteen adorable kids started the new herd. The project surpassed expectations as those kids are having kids and producing nutritious milk for the village children.
