Seko Village

Unfortunately, many parents with children die from the effects of HIV-related diseases, with 1.2 million orphans as a result. HIV is the second largest cause of death among teenagers worldwide. Unfortunately, not all orphans have grandparents (anymore) to raise them.

In Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, Angela Malik started the Seko House on 14 February 2009 with financial support from the Poelman Foundation. An orphanage for orphaned girls, often with a violent past of sexual or fysical abuse, with parents who have died from HIV or are too ill to take care of them. The Seko House is their safe place where they not only get the right care, but also a perspective to a normal life.

Margaret Banda (15 years old), resident of Seko Village: “When I finish grade 12, I want to go to university and become a doctor. This way I can help the poor people in the community, like Seko Village and Orange Babies helped me. “

Even more positive sounds: after a visit to the Orange Babies Hope Village orphanage in Namibia, Angela became convinced of the possibility and high necessity to also provide shelter for young boys. With the aim: to let them grow into role models in the community.

Children with high urgency are still being referred to Seko Village; the houses are too small. The idea is to build a third house in 2019. A long cherished dream is fulfilled for Angela Malik, Poelman BV and Orange Babies.
