Summary

At PIZZ, Mrs. Veronica Sianga and her dedicated team including teachers and care-givers, love and care for more than 500 vulnerable children. All are from very poor families (about half of them orphaned). They give them a lot of support, an excellent education and help them grow in maturity, self esteem and confidence. It is a wonderfully inspiring special place! Sadly, at the moment younger classes are closed during Covid-19 lockdown, meaning a need for even more community support.

Challenge

1 million+ children in Zambia are bereaved orphans of HIV - 10% of the population! Many others too are vulnerable, living with distant relatives in very poor and overcrowded houses, working on the streets to support themselves. A dangerous existence! Child prostitution is common, as are accidents, abuse and illness. Most cannot afford uniforms, shoes or even pencils to attend a government school. These days too they are battling worsening Covid with its consequent anxiety, risk and restrictions.

Solution

By providing not only quality education, but also food, uniforms and sensitive support, the project enables the children to attend school, and provides an opportunity for them to break the cycle of poverty, for themselves and their families.

Long-Term Impact

The project is currently providing education and a stable community for more than 500 disadvantaged children in the school itself and a further 80 students in further education. It will give them with an opportunity to obtain long term employment to enable them to support both themselves and their families.
