Plight of the Girl Child

Plight of the Girl Child

In many African countries, due to a combination of poverty, culture, and the HIV epidemic, girls are denied some of the freedoms, rights and opportunities that are routinely given to boys. As poverty increases, families are forced to make hard decisions around food, education and healthcare. It is the girl child who usually bears the burden. She is the first […]

Arden’s 2009 Trip

Returning to Zimbabwe this past June, I was transported back to a place where plans are always tentative and to-do lists only create frustration, where meetings run late and photocopiers never work.  A place where I have to bathe out of a bucket and cook over a fire.  Where people are hungry, children are parent-less, and suffering is a way […]
