Auntie Cecilia Itungi (Back Row, Far Right) House Mother


The Candle of Hope cottage is our newest home, opening in June 2020. The cottage is home to seven of our amazing young ladies, with their housemother Auntie Cecilia. The girls range in age from four to eighteen. The girls learn to care for themselves by washing their own clothing, helping with meals, caring for the garden and the cottage. During the day the girls attend school and after school hours they enjoy playing sports, singing, dancing, and helping with the younger children. Each evening the girls join all the children at COZV for dinner. After dinner, the girls have family Bible Study, and once a week the girls will join the COZV family for an evening fun night.

The girls are thankful for their sponsors. They ask prayers for their schooling, making good grades, building lifelong friendships, and that they would continue to grow in their knowledge and love of the Lord.
