Thank you for your interest in our important program providing a brighter future for Africa’s children.
Today, there are over 15 million orphaned children in Africa, many of whom have lost parents to the horrors of AIDS.
The problem is particularly severe in Zambia, where in 2009 an estimated over 690,000 children — that is one in every four Zambian children — had lost at least one parent to AIDS.
Housing, feeding, educating, and nurturing these children, who suffer from poor health, trauma, and psychological distress, is not only a moral imperative but is essential to Africa’s development prospects.
Without a real safety net, street life is the recourse for many orphans, making them more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. Housing, feeding, educating, and nurturing these children, who suffer from poor health, trauma, and psychological distress, is not only a moral imperative but is essential to Africa’s development prospects.
