Linking Zambia (Butterfly Tree)

The Butterfly Tree charity is a UK based charity and registered NGO in Zambia working with rural communities, such as Mukuni. It was founded by Jane Kaye-Bailey after a business trip to Zambia with her late husband, Lawrence, in February 2006. During a visit to the Mukuni Village they learned about the  HIV/AIDS pandemic raving rural Zambia, especially the impact on families. Out of 1000 pupils in the school, 450 were orphans. This deeply distressed Jane who immediately decided to do something to help.

  1. Sounds like a great ministry. Forgotten Voices International shares the same love for children orphaned by AIDS in Zambia, I've heard that everyday there are 1,000 new orphans in the country. Truly a pandemic.
