A high incidence of HIV, AIDS and malaria together with low education levels and a high rate of unemployment characterizes the community of Matero, in Lusaka Zambia. Most residents are extremely poor and live on less than $2 per day. Most children suffer from mental health issues due to loss of a parent, HIV, stigma, food insecurity, and/or living with extended family who have minimal resources.

This project is oopen and free to children from the community to to participate in educational games and activities which can improve mental health issues such as trauma, apathy, grief.
