childfirst.org.uk - Zambian street children

http://www.childfirst.org.uk/page.cfm?pageid=childfirst-home

The main aim of this project is to establish an agriculturally based self-financing development initiative, based in the Mkushi District of Zambia, that will give older street children the chance of a bright future by providing them with trades and skills that will more or less guarantee them employment.

Training these youngsters in the type of skills needed in Zambia will not only help to meet some of the country's skill shortages but will also help society look more positively at street children.
The project will be community-based so that both the children and as many people in the surrounding area as possible will benefit and the children will re-learn what it means to be part of a community.
