WSI Digital Moxie’s Humanitarian Involvement
Heidi has sponsored a child in the Namuso Community in Zambia. Zambia is a landlocked country in south-central Africa that borders eight other countries. The country is named for the Zambezi River, which flows from northern Zambia to the Indian Ocean.
She helped put her sponsored child, his family, and community on the path to sustainability. Now, the community is in the midst of an exciting transition. Local people and organizations are equipped to take over and lead the community’s development — and that’s something to celebrate!
The community’s transition from sponsorship to self-sufficiency is a natural progression. It’s exciting to know that through this involvement, children’s lives will continue to improve.
WSI’s Corporate Community Involvement
One of the primary ways WSI provides support to people in need is through our Make Child Poverty History program (MCPH). The MCPH organization is an ongoing global program that mobilizes resources and brings together individuals and organizations in an effort to eradicate child poverty. The initiative began when WSI board members decided it was time to take more active steps to end child poverty on a global scale.
