THE BUTTERFLY TREE
The Butterfly Tree supports orphans and rural communities in Zambia decimated by the HIV and AIDS pandemic by providing safe water & sanitation, feeding programmes, improved health and educational facilities, malaria prevention, sustainable community projects and an orphan support programme.
As of 2015, there are around 1.2 MILLION orphans in Zambia, a country with a population of only 15 ½ million and, of those 1.2 million, an estimated 170,000 are infected with HIV. The Butterfly Tree supports these children by running programmes to build and fund schools and help them grow food to make sure that these vulnerable children have enough to eat when they are at school and have the best possible start in life.
Since 2013 we’ve had the privilege of supporting The Butterfly Tree to work with communities in Zambia.
