Example text

It’s not well advertised. If it were, there would be trouble. They are already overwhelmed with applicants. Basically, Zambia’s poor are on their own, unless they belong to supportive community groups or churches. Even without the epidemic, many elderly Zambians would struggle. Rapid urbanisation has weakened family ties. Young adults often live far from the villages where their parents remain. City life is more individualistic than village life. Many modern urbanites feel less duty-bound to support their parents than rural traditions would require.

Potential scholars sit an exam and a committee of people from TASO visits clients’ homes, without an appointment, to establish how poor they are, how many children they have and how the orphan is treated. They then decide who gets the opportunity. ‘We know we can only help so many orphans,’ says Rev MpombaKakonge. ‘and we want our programme to have an impact. We want to produce a doctor. ’ Rose spends a lot of her time at the TASO head office. She’s 21, pretty and bright, but sad. She maintains eye contact with people as Extended Families 35 if she needs to keep checking that she’s being accepted.

She might also mention how she got, or suspect she got, infected, to try to deal with the issue of blame. The book’s aim is to help the child build an identity.
