Please Help Educate 10 Orphaned Children in Zambia
 
This project will fund the first year at a local secondary school for ten children who pass this year's exams at PIZZ School. PIZZ School has given them a wonderful start but they need extra support if they are to reach their full potential. Each placement costs about $400 per child per year. So, for just $33 per month you could change a young life for ever!
Helping young Kenyans survive and thrive in Kisumu
 
HATW helped build Paluoc carpentry workshop which was started in 2010 and trains very disadvantaged young people in Kisumu. It has achieved a 100% pass rate in National Gr 3 for each of the last 3 years. Most successful students continue to train there to improve their own skills, acting too as positive role models for new trainees. Unusually, 2 of these are young women. The workshop now has its own planing machine - this reduces costs, develops useful new skills and generates a bit of income. project reportread updates from the field

Training Very Disadvantaged Teenagers in Zambia
 
There are more than a million orphaned children in Zambia - 1 in 10 people! How would a wealthy country like ours cope with this size of problem? How would you as a child have coped alone in the world? If they survive, what kind of adults will they become? They need food, shelter, education and training. But also someone to love them, someone who cares if they live or die. With our partners, we are trying to help some of these very needy youngsters at Kaliyangile in the small town of Chisamba. project reportread updates from the field
Vocational Training in Mnukwa, Zambia
 
The project started in 2011 with the building of 3 classrooms followed by a bore hole in 2012 and then the addition of solar panels in 2013. We are now building staff houses, supplying the centre with sewing and knitting machines, carpentry tools and bike repair kits. The community is isolated and this project is opening up new opportunities for them and engaging the young people in exciting new projects. The solar panels and lights allow access to the rooms in the evenings too. project reportread updates from the field
