Summary

Providing seeds for schools in Zambia. Thousands of rural children in Zambia have to walk several miles each way to get to school. In October the temperatures sore to over 40 degrees celcius (100+ fahrenheit), There has been no rain since April and food supplies become depleted. Children walk to school without breakfast, relying on a school feeding program, which could be there only meal of the day.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Rural communities in Zambia have been decimated by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, leaving 710,000 orphaned children. Poverty is extreme, with two thirds of the population living on less than $2 a day.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Butterfly Tree supports these rural communities by providing improved health, education, water and community facilities. Women are the ones helping to make the change but have little or no income. Girls need education to overcome their hardships and be involved with our HIV and AIDS and prevention and teenage pregnancy programs. Provding seeds will give them an opportunity to not only produce sufficient food for the family but will give them a sustainable income-generating activity.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long-term effect will be tangible - if income is available more girls can be educated both academically and for HIV and AIDS prevention. This will reduce the number of new cases of the HIV virus and early pregnancies in teenage girls. Producing food will alleviate hunger and provide other members of the community with fresh nutritious vegetables.
