AOET Zambia's prime mandate is to provide an education to orphans and vulnerable children by helping them access good quality education.
AOET Zambia believes in solving the orphans’ problem with an African strategy.
Basically, orphans in Africa have not been institutionalized as tradition believes that every child belongs – not only to the immediate family, but to the community as well.
Orphanages and all other forms of institutionalization have come over the past few decades.
So as we pick children from the streets, we identify extended families to take care of them. where this is not possible, we place children with foster families providing a mother and father figure who care for them responsibly.
We support children with direct school sponsorship and school supplies. To answer the cry of the need to promote the girl child, we deliberately have 65% as girl children on the sponsorship.
This reduces early marriages and levels of prostitution among the girl child.
