Zambia

Safety and education for street girls

Street life in Zambia is a reality for many girls in Lusaka. A large proportion are forced to resort to prostitution – a dangerous lifestyle in a city where HIV is prevalent. Most have limited access to education, and no hope of securing themselves a brighter future.

The Projects

People like you have already helped build the main accommodation at Vision of Hope and this year we’re building a kitchen and a multi-purpose common/dining room. The completion of this home will welcome even more girls off the streets.

We will also continue to extend schools, enabling more children in the community to go to school.

Afternoon: Meet our local partners who work amongst the disadvantaged and marginalised people in Lusaka. Spend the afternoon on a street visit with the Footprints team, or spend the day at Chisomo - a drop–in centre for children from the street.

Rest and Relaxation

You will visit the world-renowned Victoria Falls and also take a sunset cruise down the Zambezi, in the footsteps of the great Dr Livingstone.
