Zambia

Zambia is one of the African countries hit hardest by HIV/AIDS. Out of a total population of 14.6 Million people, almost half of the population is 14 years old or younger.

With programs for medical care, clean water, orphan care, school feeding, agricultural practices such as poultry farming, education, microenterprise, church resourcing and church leadership development, Bright Hope is moving the extreme poor in Zambia on the path of self-sustainability.
