Zambia

Overview

Zambia is one of the many African countries that have been devastated by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.  This is especially true of the 20 to 45 age group - a segment of society that is typically the most economically productive and most involved in raising children.  For this reason, HIV/AIDS has greatly damaged Zambia’s economic productivity and the lives of a huge number of families.

Facts

It has been reported that: 

  • Within ten years, the large number of adults that are dead or dying from AIDS will leave hundreds of thousands of Zambian children without parents to care for them—currently, there are more than 600,000 AIDS orphans in Zambia.
  • More than 17% of Zambia’s children will die before the age of five.
  • Only 57% will go to primary school—meaning the majority of the population will be illiterate.
  • One out of every five children in Zambia is moderately to severely malnourished.

Helping the Children

As the AIDS crisis dramatically changes countries like Zambia, care for the children that are left behind is desperately needed.  We are confident that many of the children in our programs will excel in life and go on to be productive citizens of Zambia, as well as excellent ambassadors for Christ.

Currently, Kids Alive provides an education, nutritious meals, medical care and the love of Christ to more than 600 children in Zambia in our six children’s homes, two schools and care center program.

Julie Walker

I began my journey with Kids Alive in June of 2012.  I visited Mongu, Zambia in Southern Africa serving on a Missions trip with their playground ministry.  We built three playgrounds for two of their schools and one of the children’s homes there.  God has since given me a great burden to serve these children and be a part of their success.  I have now accepted a position as a Sponsorship Assistant, and I am excited to join in the work that God is doing in Zambia.
