Off the streets and on to a better future

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe flagZimbabwe is a country in crisis! Economic and political instability has left what was once a thriving nation with the highest inflation rate in the world and the lowest life expectancy. 80% of the population are unemployed! The AIDS pandemic has left thousands of children without parents, having to fend for themselves or rely on older siblings or grandparents to care for them. Together these factors have led to the breakdown of tradtional extended family networks that would normally care for those at risk. As a result, many of the most needy and vulnerable children find themselves on the street, either abandoned or having run away from abusive cirucumstances.
