Three children in Tanzania's Precious Orphans Children’s Home aided by Worldview Education and Care

Chicagoans, Ann Avery, and her husband Robert, founded Worldview Education and Care after witnessing the plight of young people in the Meru district of northern Tanzania. Among many services, the group helps Tanzanians by providing scholarships for child and adult education, including living expenses and medical care. They also run a girls' empowerment program to help struggling and single mothers attend school as well support an orphanage. For our Global Activism series, Ann and group supporter, Susie Rheault, will talk about their work and a program to foster HIV/AIDS awareness through sports.
