Founder's Message
Jonathan Macklin

My name is Jonathan Macklin. I am the founder of Archangel Group International a Non-Profit Corporation (AGI). AGI/USA is a registered 501c3 (Public Charity) with the IRS (EIN-92- 3114692). AGI is based in Decatur, Alabama but operates in the Republic of Africa. I am a longtime resident and a current police officer for the City of Decatur. I have over 17 years of experience in law enforcement with expertise including school resources, investigations, violent crimes, sex crimes, prostitution, narcotics, and street gangs.

 

In November of 2023, Dr. Douglas Sakuwaha and I founded the non-governmental organization (NGO), Archangel Group International/Zambia. Dr. Sakuwaha is a highly educated Zambian nationalist who speaks seven languages and is respected by the Zambian people. His skillset has helped us navigate through barriers including a multitude of languages and many cultural barriers that exist in the country. The NGO allows members from the United States to work in the country under a work permit. The Assistant Commissioner of Police, Bishop Kondwelani Sakala, recently joined AGI’s Board of Directors. He is highly respected by the President of Zambia. He assisted us with forming a liaison with Zambia Police and the Permanent Secretary of Home Affairs and Internal Security.

 

As for AGI, its primary objective is to combat human trafficking issues that exist in Zambia. Human trafficking is a serious issue plaguing the country. The root causes of this inhumane act of violence are multifaceted and include poverty, lack of education, gender inequality, and corruption. Many Zambians live in extreme poverty and do not have access to food, suitable housing, humanitarian aid, clean water, education, or healthcare. Vulnerable families from rural areas are enticed to send their children to work in cities without verifying working or living conditions. Child labor is a culturally accepted practice in Zambia, and many times child exploitation remains unidentified, unchecked, and rampant. Many families are so poor, the parents feel forced to abandon one or more of their children in order to survive themselves.

These orphaned children are forced into homelessness and become especially vulnerable to violence and trafficking. Small children live on the streets and beg for food. Traffickers have been known to sell addictive substances to these homeless and abandoned children, which increases their vulnerability to trafficking and abuse. Zambian women and children from rural areas are trafficked to cities and forced into domestic servitude or forced labor in agriculture, textile production, mining, construction, street vending, small businesses such as bakeries, and forced begging. Extended families and trusted family acquaintances may even facilitate trafficking. Human trafficking is often used to murder innocent victims to harvest their organs for profit.

 

Utilizing my background in American law enforcement, AGI has been authorized to train law enforcement personnel in Zambia to combat these inhumane acts of violence. Our training does not include firearms or use of force against the Zambian people. Instead, we will partner with current and former US law enforcement officers who will travel to Zambia to share their expertise with the Zambian Police. Our training will empower officers to be more effective when addressing crime, while at the same time, ensure the safety of the Zambian citizens they serve.

 

As for AGI, we have already began combating this issue by utilizing the gospel of Jesus Christ and bringing a “family first” approach to the people in the rural areas. We have begun reuniting families, finding ways for them to overcome poverty, educating and providing them with the necessary resources to be self-sufficient and self-sustaining for the near-and long-term future.

In order for our mission to continue, we depend on the generosity and donations of businesses, churches, and individuals that believe in our cause. We appreciate any donations or support you may offer. If you would like to meet in person and learn more about me on a personal level and the mission of AGI, please let us know. If you would like to make a donation, you can visit our website at www.archangelgroupinternational.org or make out a check to Archangel Group International and mail it to P.O Box 425 Decatur, Alabama 35602. All contributions are tax- deferrable.

 

In closing, I would like to add that AGI will always represent God and the United States of America with honor. We will never support any organization or individual that supports terrorism, crimes of violence, disregard to the law, genocide, racism, any forms of discrimination, or seeks to infringe on the civil liberties of others. More importantly, refuses to stand in unity with our country.
