More than 1 million children in Zambia are bereaved orphans of HIV/AIDS, almost 10% of the population! Many of these children live with their siblings, but with no adult support, in very small and ramshackle child-headed houses and work on the streets to support themselves. This is a dangerous existence! Child prostitution is common, as are accidents and illness; life expectancy is short. Most cannot afford uniforms or even pens and pencils to enable them to attend a government school.
By providing not only 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.
The project is currently providing education and a stable community for more than 300 disadvantaged children. It will give them with an opportunity to obtain long term employment to enable them to support both themselves and their families.
