Zambia Orphans Aid

Every child has the right to an education, but for many these rights are denied. In Zambia, where there are over a million children who have lost one or both parents, many children are vulnerable to early marriage, sexual exploitation or child labour. Zambia Orphans Aid works with community groups to ensure children receive the care they need and, importantly, can access the classroom, giving them vital skills that will help them to navigate a challenging world.

After Susan fostered twin babies who had been abandoned near her home in Chitamba Village, northern Zambia, other vulnerable children were brought to her so she founded a club to help them. "I have the responsibility of taking care of these children", Susan said.
