My wife and I took two trips to Zambia this year to look for community schools that serve only AID orphans and vulnerable children. We visited many schools and were greeted with such friendly welcomes and respect everywhere we went. At the end of the summer when our self-funded service volunteers and board members returned, we selected two schools with which we will build relationships. They each have over 300 students. All the students are AIDS orphans or vulnerable and a few are handicapped. We plan to work with the community to increase the quality of the education the children receive eventually making these schools models for other schools in Zambia.

A small nonprofit with a very small staff, Zambian women groups and energetic working volunteer board making the most of every dollar donated to support the education of 1,500 AIDS orphans and vulnerable children in the poor communities surrounding the capital city of Lusaka, Zambia.

The two Zambian university students who come back to encourage younger students to stay in school.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Seeing the smiles on the kids and the women singing and dancing as we arrived to teach.
