Education is a key driving factor in creating social mobility. It can make massive change – improving life expectancy, health and income generation. Quite simply, it can save lives.
By sponsoring a child with Positive Women from just £5 per month, you can help save a life by sending an orphan to primary school. In Swaziland, a country currently with the highest HIV/AIDS infection rate and the world’s lowest life expectancy, support of this kind has never been more crucial.
For Audrey, it was the difference between life and death.
At Positive Women, we’ve helped Audrey as a child heading her own household. When her parents died from AIDS, Positive Women supported her in bringing up her younger siblings, including getting them into education.
Audrey says, “When my parents died, I felt like all we could do was wait for death. We had no means of bringing in money for food and my younger brothers and sisters were at risk of abuse. But then help came, I was trained to help support my family and my brothers and sisters were put into school. Now we don’t wait for death anymore.”
All this changed the moment someone like you decided to sponsor a child for £5 a month – you can help change the lives of children like Audrey, simply by returning the above form or by regularly donating through the donation page.
