Poverty in Zambia

Children growing up in poverty in Zambia face many serious challenges, including malnutrition and a lack of access to health and dental services, difficulty with basic education, and high youth unemployment rates. 

That is 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 find a job and break the cycle of poverty.

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