The Daniel Society’s everyday humanitarians are doing their part in the global fight against extreme poverty. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, on June 6, 2017, we will travel to Zambia to lay the groundwork for our Rural HIV/AIDS Children’s Initiative and The Daniel Society Women’s Economic Development Club.
Sadly, less than 50% of children with HIV/AIDS in Zambia are on lifesaving treatment. For children living in rural villages in the Western Province, the problem is even more severe. Our project will promote the health and well-being of children living with HIV/AIDS in the Western Province.
For the women of Lusoke Village in the Chongwe District of Lusaka, the cycle of extreme poverty has taken its toll on them and their families. Alcoholism, poor education and diseases are the harsh reality for their children. To break this cycle, The Daniel Society will enroll 20 to 30 women, ages 20 and above, in a Women’s Economic Development Club. The Club will provide micro-loans to women for entrepreneurial ventures and an educational savings plan for their children.
