Review for AFRICAN VISION OF HOPE, Maryville, IL, USA
This organization directly assists orphans and needy children in Zambia with health matters and providing them an education. It has very low administrative costs, as a result of which most money raised by this charitable group goes directly to the relief of the children. Volunteers go to Zambia a couple times per year for about 10 days per trip, working directly with the children and adult employees of the 4 schools locations and the orphanage administered by the group. Active building projects include another school and facilities at a farm, where agricultural training is conducted, in addition to which crops are grown to feed kids. Adult education is also provided in sewing classes, making school uniforms for the children, thus providing jobs for the adult women and uniforms at lower cost.
