About Zambia

Kids growing up in poverty in Zambia face many serious challenges, including a lack of access to even simple health care services, difficulty getting a basic education, persistent malnutrition problems and youth unemployment rates.

That's why we focus on providing access to critical medical and dental care, early childhood development programs, nutrition education and feeding programs, and youth training to teach skills needed to ensure they can find a job and break the cycle of poverty.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.

Did you know? Solving poverty isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. That's why we customize programs by age + location + circumstances to help break the cycle of poverty.

A quick look at programs currently available for sponsored kids under age 12 in Zambia.


Kids enrolled in preschool receive school fees. Kids enrolled in primary school receive school supplies and help with either uniforms or fees.



Kids can enroll in fun, interactive classes that teach skills like decision-making and creative thinking and emphasize social issues such as respecting others and recycling.
