Every 14 seconds a child becomes an orphan due to AIDS in Africa. Without help, these children are left to care for themselves, and become marginalized in society.
But through Juma's World, we can give orphans a better future. Walk A Mile for Orphans will provide a thousand orphans in the Tabora region of Tanzania the opportunity to be empowered to live their best life. Not only are orphans provided fresh water, food, clothes, education and other essentials, but they are trained how to yield to their inherent ability to succeed.
