Give the Gift of a High School Education

It’s hard to believe that for just ten dollars a month you could send a student living in the bush to high school for a year.
It is equally as hard to believe that without that ten dollars this student will not be able to go to highschool.
Wow.
It’s that easy to change a life. Just go to our donate page and hit general donation ten dollars per month.

Give Someone a Job

Micro grants are not micro loans!
It’s hard to believe that in the Northern Province of Zambia, 88 percent of people do not have a steady income.
For as little as thirty dollars per month you can provide a bright young entrepreneur with the tools they need to make a job for themselves.
Go ahead change a life.

Pay a Teacher's Salary

What is a school without a teacher?
65% of Zambians are living in the bush without running water or electricity,
in these rural areas there are tiny village schools but they are schools without teachers.
For just one hundred dollars per month you can pay a teachers salary to go into the bush and teach children English.
The only language that will change a subsistence farmers life.
