It takes ONE person (like you!) to make a huge difference in Beatrice's life. By sponsoring her, you're creating Team Beatrice and giving her a chance to break the cycle of poverty. Your $36 monthly gift is invested in her future and the lives of children like her in Zambia. 

And supporting a teen is important because they’re at higher risk for exposure to gangs, pregnancy, drugs and more. Your encouragement will give hope and confidence during a crucial time in their lives.

Poverty in 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.
