Removing Barriers to Education in Zambia

In Zambia, 10 percent of the population are orphans and many of these children lack adequate healthcare, psychosocial support, or adult supervision. This often results in children forgoing school, along with the opportunities that education provides. 

In an effort to empower this vulnerable population, Helmsley is supporting Villages of Hope’s work to provide more than 2,000 orphans with essential services: free education, emergency support, healthcare, housing, and full-time caregiving. Villages of Hope is also improving food security and nutrition for children and providing sanitation education for at-risk children and their caregivers.

This video shows how Villages of Hope’s efforts to remove crucial barriers to education is giving these children greater opportunity.
