Situation

The problem is trying to solve plight of orphans in Zambia. There are 710,000 orphans in Zambia. Funding will support children who have been orphaned through the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Many children have to drop out of school due to lack of funds, the charity aims to get all these children back into education as soon as possible. Education is the key to overcome poverty, hunger and disease and gives hope and a future to children who have been orphaned.

Solution

The problem will be solved by using funds to educate orphans in Zambia, providing them with access to safe, clean water, feeding programs and improved health facilities. Without these in place no advancement will be made. Education is free only up to grade seven and throughout the years uniforms, shoes and books have to be bought. After grade seven school and exam fees incur. We will provide all the above which will improve the chances for the orphans obtaining a better life.
