Every 15 seconds, a child-headed household is formed.
In the developing world, the death of parents from AIDS leaves behind little children, often four or five of them, who desperately want to stay together as a family - a child-headed household. Imagine watching your mother and father slowly die before your eyes, leaving you to bury them and then to raise and care for your younger brothers and sisters. AIDS Orphans Rising takes you through the daily lives of these children and answers key questions, such as: Where do they live? How do they survive? What can I do to help?
There are millions of AIDS orphans! Left alone, they will be uneducated, disenfranchised, and unwanted: ripe candidates for radicalization and exploitation by dictators and terrorists. If good people like yourself do not reach out to these children so they can get love, an education, and set up in some profitable enterprise, civilization will deteriorate to a point that you will not even recognize it. Each chapter provides real solutions and actions you can take now to help these children not only survive, but succeed.
