CS Network is a non profit organisation founded 2014 by 6 women. Its mission is to create a union of sisterhood that empowers and uplifts underprivileged communities. In the last 2 years they have been working on a number of charity projects and one of them was to work a children’s home in Chikwakwa called Shearley Cripps. They have donated clothing and food, and in 2014 they organised a soccer match with the kids there at the home and those that were not playing helped the make burgers for lunch! In April 2015, Unplugged partnered up with CS Network for the book drive. The audience was encouraged to bring along old or new books to donate towards opening a library at Shearly Cripps children’s home. It is still an ongoing process and you will be seeing them at each Unplugged. If you want to find out more, you can contact Lienne on 0772159370.
