Martin Angel Chikulo a 29 years old dynamic and inspiring youth who was born in Lusaka Zambia. His passion and love to help orphans and vulnerable children started at a tender age. Even at a young age Angel knew what his calling was so he committed himself in indentifying orphans and vulnerable teenagers/youths in different communities and schools in order to support their academics and other personal challenges like clothing, school uniforms, books, food etc. He has taken over 1000 children back to school through his Organisation called TAYA (Teens and Youths Ablaze). His passion is to see many vulnerable children have equal access to education and also empower them in other skills so that they can be financially independent when they leave TAYA programs. One of the program he has at his centre is GOAT farming in Kabuko village. He encourages young adults to learn how to rare goats and become Entrepreneurs in the future. He aslo works with children with Albinism by giving them an education and fighting for their rights. He has advocated on some Radio shows and TV as well.
Angel organises food drives, clothing drives and many more. And at his center, he caters to all ages including widows as well. Angel also runs an orphanage house called HOME OF LOVE were he houses and supports various vulnerable children from different back grounds of life. He currently only accommodates six young adults and the oldest twins are 20 years but still in 9th grade and the rest of the children only come for meals and educative programes. Angel also takes the challenge of visiting street children and supporting them through basic needs and spiritual support. Every month he organises a feeding program for hundreds of vulnerable and orphaned children modeling on the motto of the organization “Every child is your child”. He started CHANGING LIVES ZAMBIA which he took to Facebook for well wishers to donate towards the upkeep and food. He also extends the support in other small towns within Zambia.
This is Angel’s story.
