Education Saves Lives

Thanks to your donations, there are already 3 girls attending secondary school that would otherwise be destined to a life on the homestead working in the fields. Studies show that the incidence of HIV decreases to 50% when a girl attends secondary school. In this way, we say that your gift of education is a life saver!! These girls were selected as part of ASAP's ongoing partnership with Catholic Relief Services - the Out of School Adolescents Project. This 3 year project began in 2007 and will assist over 1,000 girls between the ages of 12 and 17 survive and thrive in rural Zimbabwe. Because of the cholera outbreak in 2008, funding for school fees for these at-risk girls were redirected to stop the spread of this deadly disease. With your support, ASAP looks forward to giving more girls hope for the future in rural Zimbabwe very soon.
