Challenge

Every child has the right to an education, but without uniforms, shoes, books, and school exam fees, needy and orphaned children are unable to attend school. This is a particularly pressing issue in Zambia, where over 710,000 children have lost their parents to AIDS/HIV. In Mukuni Village alone, there are more than 450 needy children. Without access to education, these children have little hope for a better future.

Solution

Education is the long-term solution to breaking the cycle of poverty that is a harsh reality in Zambia, and donations to The Butterfly Tree are the short-term means of providing that education. There is no limit to the change we can affect.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the education of Zambia's orphaned and needy children, The Butterfly Tree will help pave the way for a brighter future for these children and for Zambia. The educational and social benefits of education will empower them for generations
