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 2.1 children have lost their parents to AIDS/HIV related illensses. Many children live with elderly grandparents who have no source of income. 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. Many have gone on to college or university and sought employment. Some are now volunteer members of The Butterfly Tree, creating sustainability and giving back to their communities. Others, trained in skills are earning an income building schools. The educational and social benefits of education will empower them for generations.
