In 2013, Allan Karr met with Kaluba Kapapula, a Zambian educator. Dr. Kapapula shared a vision of educating Africans, specifically Zambians, to help advance educational opportunities in the region. Together they filed documents with the Colorado Secretary of State setting up a trade name, and opened a bank account under another 501c3, Ethne Church Network, in the trade name of HEART. An initial deposit was made to open the account.
A group of founding Board of Directors was formed: Allan Karr, President; Anna Meredeth, Rocky Privratsky, and Lincoln Linscott. Kaluba Kapapula, the visionary of HEART, is an ex-officio member. He will be used for advice but since organizations he is involved with could become recipients of funds, he is not a voting member of the board.
Since its founding, HEART has successfully fund raised for and built Twin Palms Leadership. In September of 2015, only days after its first student orientation, the University burned to the ground, along with Dr. Kapapula’s home. HEART is currently in the process of fundraising to rebuild this University.
