Zimbabwe is currently in economic, social and political turmoil. Most rural citizens live in extreme poverty, unable to access what we call basic necessities --- like education, healthcare, ongoing food supply, etc. Life expectancy is one of the lowest in southern/central Africa, many times resulting in orphaned children.
Left in the care of their extended families who can barely survive themselves, these young children are often regarded as burdensome. This results in may school dropouts, early marriages, prostitution and street survival. All this, and they live in a country where unemployment has reached almost 95%. Is there any hope?
