PROJECT SUMMARY

Low-cost school and home for HIV orphans

HIV/Aids has made orphans of millions of children. With a tree at its symbolic center, the Low-cost school and home for HIV orphans enables children to create their own home, and even help in its construction.

As the children grow to adulthood, the village can be extended for their own families to grow up in this caring community.
