Helping to Improve Livelihoods

Incessant Poverty

Sub-Saharan Africa has 10 percent of the world’s population, bears 24 percent of the global burden of disease and has only 3 percent of the world’s total numbers of health workers, 28.8 million people are infected with HIV/AIDS [more than 70%] of infected people live in Sub-Saharan Africa according to WHO (World Health Organisation).


Sizeable rural populations, low levels of economic development and high rates of HIV/AIDS infection exacerbate the challenges of providing rural health care, education and improving Livelihoods in Africa, especially in countries like Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Namibia and Tanzania.
