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 school.

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 600 disadvantaged children in the school itself and a further 90 students in further education. The aim is that they have more opportunity to access employment in the future, allowing them to support themselves and their families.
