Challenge

More than 1 million children in Zambia are bereaved orphans of HIV/AIDS, almost 10% of the population! Many of these children live with distant relatives in very poor and overcrowded houses and work on the streets to support themselves. This is a dangerous existence! Child prostitution is common, as are accidents, abuse and illness; life expectancy is short. Most cannot afford uniforms, shoes or even pens and pencils to enable them to attend a government 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 the children 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 400 disadvantaged children. It will give them with an opportunity to obtain long term employment to enable them to support both themselves and their families.
