The Problem:
Hunger & Illness

Dayo is eight years old and lives in South Africa. Her favorite subjects are writing and math, and she enjoys helping her friends with their homework. When she grows up, she wants to be a teacher.

Dayo has AIDS. And she doesn't know it.

Dayo is only one of the 5.6 million people in South Africa infected with the HIV virus. South Africa has the highest AIDS prevalence of any country in the world. In 2005, there were an estimated 3 million children living as orphans due to the AIDS virus. And that number keeps growing.
