Zambia: Support for Schooling of HIV/AIDS Orphans



In Zambia, one in ten children has lost his or her parents due to HIV/AIDS. In many cases, orphans cannot go to school, because they do not have the means to pay the school fees. AAR Japan is supporting schooling of around 50 children, as well as their guardians' income-generating activities (IGA) such as poultry raising and maize milling. IGA was originally initiated by groups of guardians who adopted orphans, with the aim of creating funds to finance the children's schooling.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Like in many other parts of Zambia, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has affected the communities in Lusaka. Guardians, often in tight economic circumstances, must care for the orphaned children while bearing the burden of supporting their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

AAR Japan implements a comprehensive program against HIV/AIDS near Lusaka, the capital of Zambia. One of the activities is to support HIV/AIDS orphans in their schooling by providing notebooks, uniforms, and other necessary materials. Their guardians receive additional assistance through income-generating activities (IGA) so that the children can continue their education.

Potential Long Term Impact

We aim to help HIV/AIDS orphans and vulnerable children by providing opportunities for basic education, and empower their guardians by providing opportunities for income-generating activities.
