The mission of this event, should you choose to accept it, is to send 100 kids in Zambia to school for a whole year; changing their lives, and the course of history forever!
We believe that every child deserves, and has the potential, to pursue their goals and dreams. And we believe that access to education is not only the key to unlocking this potential but a human right.
Today there are 1.2 million orphans in Zambia. 800,000 have been orphaned due to HIV & AIDS. That about the population of Hamilton, Burlington & Stoney Creek combined!
To send 100 orphans in Zambia to school.
The cost of your ticket not only ensures that a child in Zambia receives the school uniform and academic supplies they need to attend school, the uniform is also sewn by women in the community, allowing them to support their families with dignity. School supplies are purchased at local businesses to help fuel the Zambian economy.
