Who We Are
Assisi House is nestled in 90 quiet, wooded acres of St. Bonaventure University College, Makeni, Lusaka. Just 20 minutes from downtown Lusaka, Zambia. We are supported by the Order of Minor Friars of St. Francis of Assisi, a religious congregation of priests and brothers who are dedicated to walking with people in their search for God. People of all faith traditions are welcomed with warm hospitality and opportunity for spiritual and personal growth.
