Lena Wickner (left) founded African Shade with Kathleen Pruitt over 10 years when they were working together in recovery ministry in Santa Cruz, CA.  They realized they both had a desire to bring the same recovery and healing ministry to Zambia, Africa. The mission of  "African SHADE " is to provide community services supporting women, children and families affected by substance abuse and domestic violence, including emotional, sexual and physical abuse.
