Through a skills development program related to the transformation of mangoes, a group of women from Musokotwane in Zambia are learning to create jams, teas, and mango powder.

Partnership Give a Hand and The Butterfly Tree Charity, The partnership between The Butterfly Tree Charity and Monde par la Main/ Give a Hand was established in 2016 after a first project together aiming to provide textbooks for children so they can participate adequately at the Education Ministry tests. We quickly acknowledged the great work led by Mrs. Jane Kaye-Bailey in the field in Zambia and wished to continue our partnership with them. We are proud to support The Butterfly Tree Charity in Zambia; these projects genuinely change the lives of thousands in these regions that are often heavily affected by famine and drought.
The Butterfly Tree Charity is improving education in many rural areas. By doing so, it has a major impact on health and economic future for women.
Butterfly Tree Charity
The Butterfly Tree Charity organization was founded in 2006 by Mrs. Jane Kaye Bailey in order to provide support to the many orphaned children living in the rural areas of Zambia where thousands of people were decimated by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The organization implements water sanitation programs, feeding programs, infrastructure improvements, healthcare and education programs as well as women empowerment programs.
