In Sub-Saharan Africa, children are threatened daily by poverty, illness, and illiteracy. Rural women face high rates of death in childbirth and almost all the responsibility for family care. The family structure is fragile and weakening due to AIDS, war, and urbanization. Aid for Africa members support children in school, provide safe havens for orphans, advocate for funding for children’s issues. They prevent and treat fistula, work to prevent rape and trafficking, and help women start small businesses. Members help families build wells, create employment, and improve health.
