Our educated young women are lifting their families and communities out of poverty. At our Entrepreneurship Academy, we provide internships where our young women receive hands-on training. As they practice the techniques required for each job, they also learn essential skills such as time management and organization, bookkeeping and financial planning, as well as marketing and customer service.
Your donations at work
At our Entrepreneurship Academy, we equip our young women with computer skills, english literacy, and tools to compete in local and global markets so they can build prosperous communities. We help our graduates get jobs, start businesses, enroll in advanced degree programs, and pair them with local mentors to help them succeed.
The kids in the village had never been to school before and had little hope of ever becoming literate, properly educated, or eventually getting good jobs to support their families.
These are brilliant, engaged children who just needed an opportunity to learn. Their families value education and were most excited that we allow girls to go to school and not just boys.
In coordination with the Zambian Ministry of Health and funded by generous donors, local villagers and volunteers were able to build the Harper Anne Clinic in 2018.
Dr. Ackim Mwaba and his staff see over 500 patients a month, and every Friday, over 100 kids line up to get vaccinated.
Since the clinic has opened, over 250 babies have been born and no infant nor maternal deaths have occurred.
We’re tackling the water crisis. In many remote areas of Zambia, women travel over 3 hours a day to fetch water. In many cases, even that water is contaminated with bacteria and viruses—particularly diarrhea and cholera, which are among the most common sicknesses negatively affecting school attendance and dropout rates, and more.
Clean water means more effective gardening, farming, and ranching. Larger, healthier crops can be planted and maintained, and livestock can flourish.
