Keeping Zara in School


Let me introduce you to Zara, a child who was enrolled in our program in 2010.  She was diagnosed HIV+ after the death of her mother.  Zara now lives with her aunt who has always been supportive, even though caring for Zara can be challenging.  A home visit was done for pyschosocial support for Zara and her family.  Through the support of her family, she was able to join kids club where health talks are done.  These talks were very helpful in understanding her health needs.  Zara is also an active member of the youth support group at the facility.

Through the support of our education program, Zara is in class five at the academy.  She is bright and did extremely well on her last exam.  Zara's health is good, which gives her the opportunity to study hard and achieve her goals.

Your continued support of our education programs has made all of this possible for Zara and the other girls in our programs.  Thank you for caring for these young lives.  You have blessed them beyond measure!
