Special Feeding Programs
Our feed Programme for Street Children from the , orphans in Community Schools and families hit by AIDS or other devastating illnesses.

For example, Children (pictured at right) is very happy to be at our Chilanga Community Schools in Lusaka Zambia. Before coming at Chilanga Community School , they scavenged for food in rubbish dumps. Now Children have hope to "grow up and become a good people in Society.With your help, we shall increase the opportunity to more Children in Africa.

Disease-free Water/Sanitation
In Africa, 80% of the children do not have access to clean water. In many areas, women and children must walk for hours to find water. At the same time, animals are drinking and urinating in it! Animal carcasses often lie rotting at the edge of the water.

Hofai, in partnership with Community Based Organizations and Zambia Community Schools Secretariat is looking for Partners to help in Building more Community Schools and Water systems in villages where women and children do not have access to clean water and where children die because of contaminated water.

Hygiene Clinics
African mothers, especially new mothers are taught basic hygiene practices--starting from the bathroom and moving to the kitchen--to help safeguard their children's welfare.

War Against AIDS
As a continent, Africa has the highest number of people affected by HIV/AIDS. 70% of all the infected adults and 80% of all the infected children live in Africa. Furthermore, 2.2 million out of 3 million worldwide deaths occurred in Africa.

Hofai is actively involved in numerous AIDS/HIV through INTERFAITH ON HIV/AIDS programs in Africa. These programs include feeding programs and provision shelter for AIDS orphans, and AIDS/HIV prevention seminars.

Some of our programs include:

ZAMBIA: Orphans receive food, clothing, and shelter. They also have a Care Giver who provides God's love and teaches basic living skills.

TANZANIA: The Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) are Cared within Communities and over 248 OVC are in Foster Families. Hofai is also looking for Partners to help in Opening Community Schools Systems in Tanzania since it has worked well in Zambia.
