Summary

Provide youth infected and/or affected by AIDS in Zimbabwe with whatever they need in order to continue their education, whether it be food, training, medicine, school fees, or supplies. We will be targeting over 100 children and youth, giving them the tools necessary to return or stay in school, knowing that sickness, hunger, lack of funds, lack of training, and other obstacles often will keep under privileged children out of school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are so many children who've been orphaned by the AIDS pandemic or who are suffering from the virus. These children find it hard to go to school when they are sick and hurting or when they can't afford the fees associated with supplies and school payments. Lack of medicine and proper nutrition play a big role in keeping these kids out of school, as well.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will give youth in Zimbabwe the opportunity to return to school by providing them with medicine, trainings, nutritional support, and job skills. All of these gifts are just a hand up - they are a way for the kids to get back to school and to do what they love to do - STUDY!

Potential Long Term Impact

When children are educated, they have an easier time finding jobs as adults and they also have a better sense of worth. We know that the kids in our programs love to go to school because they know it is the only way they'll get out of the cycle of poverty. And, when families do better, whole communities do so, as well. We are excited to see how the kids benefit and how they, bit by bit, change where they live and how they live.
