Education is the Key

Without education these children have no hope of improving their situation. In addition to the academic subjects education teaches them about the dangers of HIV and AIDS and how to avoid it, how to remove the stigma of HIV and how to live with HIV if you have the misfortune of being born with it.

Knowing your status, living positively and taking the medication can give a child with HIV the chance to lead a normal life, all of this can be achieved through education. Attending school, mixing with friends and completing high school gives an opportunity for these vulnerable children to have a future. Zambia is an up and coming tourist destination. We work close to Livingstone, the tourism capitol of the nation, therefore school leavers will have an opportunity to apply for a career.

Since 2012 we funded orphans and vulnerable young people to partake in further education courses. Among those courses are bio-medicine, accountancy, teaching, agriculture, engineering, journalism, forward and clearing, hotel management and catering. One young man from Mukuni was sponsored to become a pilot.

Every year we aim to add more orphans and vulnerable children to the programme. Many grade 10 pupils, having sat grade nine in view of attaining a high school place, fail to find funds for their educational needs.

We are sponsoring orphans from the following schools: Mukuni, N’gandu, Kamwi, Ndele, Machenje, Siamasimbi, Chaba, Ndele, Chuunga, Mahalululu, River View, Musokotwane, Senkobo and Lumbo schools. Many of these pupils walk miles each way, keen to be educated and with the hope of overcoming poverty and disease.

Sponsor an orphan today and help a child to receive the education they need to succeed.
