Taking the Sting out of School

Seven Wonders Challenge - second wonder

I wonder... if snakes and scorpions ever interrupted your school classes?


In Zambia school children risk more than just a sore backside when they sit on the classroom floor. Thankfully, PEPAIDS’ Schools of Good Hope project provides desks and chairs to community schools in Zambia. That means more children don’t have worry about lethal creepy crawlies in their classroom. We’re sure you agree they deserve to be safe at school. 

The children of Zambia don't need your pity, they need a chance.
The Schools of Good Hope project is offering exactly that. In 2012 we gave more than 1000 children in Zambia a lifeline out of poverty. Will you help us continue our work?

Our Seven Wonders Challenge aims to raise at least £7,000 before Christmas to help reach seven additional schools in 2013. Join the challenge.

Something Worth Wondering

Seven Wonders Challenge - first wonder

In 2012 PEPAIDS' Schools of Good Hope project gave more than 1000 children in Zambia a lifeline out of poverty by equipping volunteer teachers in seven community schools with effective training and resources.

I wonder... how many more children's lives will be changed in 2013 if you will offer your support to the Schools of Good Hope project this Christmas?

With your help, we can reach an additional 1,500 children in seven new schools AND continue to support the seven schools reached in 2012. All of that would mean a better education for more than 2,500 children.
Without your financial support how many children's lives will be changed? Zero!

The children of Zambia don't need your pity, they need a chance.

Where There's a Well There's a Way!

george_gardenLast year we told you about George's marvellous medicines that are made by one of our AIDS action clubs in Ngwezi B zone, near Mazabuka, Zambia. The club is run by local farmer and SAPEP volunteer, George, who has trained the group, of HIV positive adults, to help him grow the plants from which they make a variety of herbal medicines and ointments. They use them to manage their own symptoms and sell them to generate an income. The medicines were so effective that local doctors were sending patients to George for treatment. Their nearest water supply was a river 7km away and George and his community positive living club were held back by a lack of water during the dry season. Our dream was to be able to dig them a borehole so that they could have a year-round water supply to keep the garden growing and the income flowing!
