Travis and Lorna Curry, full-time missionaries with TMS Global partnered with Children of Zion, Inc. from October 2010 to February 2018. They served as the full-time on site directors of Children of Zion Village. The village is located along the banks of the Zambezi River in the north eastern corner of Namibia, Africa.
Children of Zion Village is a residential child care facility responsible for providing care for more than 60 orphaned and vulnerable children placed by the Namibian government.
At Children of Zion Village the boys and girls receive love, nutrition, shelter, healthcare, academic, vocational and Bible education, and become part of one large Christian family. Daily prayer and Christian teaching keep the home Christ-centered. Our Namibian staff, missionaries and volunteers work together to raise the children in our "village".
The Currys directed the ongoing operation of the Children of Zion Village, including the children’s homes, staffing needs for 25 local nationals and the mission school.
During the Currys time at COZV the children were transitioned from a single large dormitory to family style homes with house mothers having complete responsibility for the children. The local national managers were empowered and trained in all operational aspects for COZV.
The Currys also strived to become part of the local community as they worked alongside of and ministered to the local nationals. Children of Zion Village partners with the nearby Mafuta feeding center where food and support is provided for more than 100 orphans.
