Spring is in the air and we're in the mood for growing things! In 2014 we're going to grow futures!
Our mission is to empower the poorest and most vulnerable people in Zambia to be able to overcome poverty and the effects of HIV and AIDS. We believe that young people are Zambia's "window of hope" and we are committed to doing all we can to see them and their communities prosper!
Growing Futures 2014
Our project this year is called Growing Futures!
Growing Futures will build on the good relationships we have already established with our communities through our Schools of Good Hope Project.
Since 2010 our focus has been on improving the future prospects of children in seven of Zambia's poorest rural communities
Growing Futures will involve running a series of educational camps for orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) and working with the adults in each community to help them take practical steps to care for their own OVCs, long term.
We're especially excited about our Growing Futures Project because we have designed it with our communities to address the specific needs they say they say have!
Growing Futures will focus on
• Children's Rights
• Education about HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive health
• Income generation
• Enabling OVCs to have fun and a break from the daily hardships they face!
