Meet ADP Peter
Peter Chikoseleshi is a local Zambian who is married and has 5 children.
For decades, Peter held onto a dream of one day creating an NGO that would exist to advocate and empower the poor in his community. His dream was realized in 2019 when he founded Advocacy and Development for the Poor (ADP). Peter operates and oversees a community school in the Mapalo township where he lives. The school has over 500 students who are largely orphaned and vulnerable children. He is also the pastor of Mapalo Bread of Life Church, and is the chairman of the Mapalo Network of Churches. Peter also serves on the board of Prison Fellowship Zambia and on a local community development committee. Peter has always had an incredible passion to serve his community. In fact, the township of Mapalo was formerly named Chipulukusu, and had a reputation for being a place where mischief and crime were the order of the day. Peter was instrumental in officially having the township’s name changed to Mapalo, which means “blessing’. Peter is truly a blessing to the community in which he lives and tirelessly serves, and his labor of love is proving to create great changes in the lives of those in his community.
