The goal of the SAM Project is to facilitate local enterprise in communities in Southern Zambia who have been affected by HIV/AIDS. The SAM Project links communities to the resources and skills necessary to engage in small-scale economic activities, such as gardening, egg production and beekeeping. The crops are raised and sold at local markets in order to provide cash for individuals, families, and community groups. The enterprises, once established, become locally sustainable and are not dependent on external donations.
