In 2005, a grant of $5,000 was provided to ship donated equipment and supplies for an ongoing project in the Village of Hope, a volunteer dental clinic operated by a group from Winnipeg, Manitoba at an orphanage and school in Kitwe, Zambia. The Village of Hope offers a daily feeding and program and free education to all the students. Unfortunately, the orphanage does not have the financial means to obtain professional dental care for the children. Through volunteer dental task force teams, the children are seen on a regular basis and their dental needs cared for by the visiting teams. In 2007, an additional $10,000 was provided to upgrade the clinic equipment and in 2008, $10,000 was granted towards the construction of a permanent clinic facility.
