“Parents are often unable to feed their children…”

Economics

Zambia is a landlocked nation with minimal goods available to export for economic growth. Nearly two-thirds (63%) of Zambians receive less than one dollar a day as compensation for work. Parents are often unable to feed their children on their salaries, and families live without basic needs such as shelter, food and clean water due to a lack of funds.

Nearly half (47.1%) of Zambians are under the age of 15, and many of these children are orphans. The death of a parent deprives children of the learning and values they need to become socially adjusted and economically productive adults.
