These young men have now dedicated their lives to bringing children in off the streets. The documentary examines the major causes of orphans living in the streets of Lusaka, such as the devastating AIDS epidemic that has gripped this Southern African nation. It is estimated that over one million orphans live in Zambia. Most of the orphans are the result of the death of one or more parents after contracting HIV/AIDS. The impacts of this disease has lead to widespread homelessness that threatens to overwhelm the efforts being made by organizations and individuals who work to help traumatized children get off the streets. This documentary is scheduled for release in October of 2011.
