Episcopal Relief & Development receives $1.4 million grant to help children in Zambia and Kenya

From ENS-

Episcopal Relief & Development is proud to announce that it has received a $1.4 million grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to expand its integrated Early Childhood Development program (ECD) in Zambia and to extend the program into Kenya. The four-year grant will enable the organization and its local partners, Zambia Anglican Council Outreach Programmes (ZACOP) and Anglican Church of Kenya Development Services (ADS-Nyanza), to impact 7,600 families including 14,880 children ages 3 and younger, many of whom are impacted by HIV/AIDS.

“We are extremely grateful for the continued partnership of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and its commitment towards early childhood development and vulnerable children,” said Robert W. Radtke, president of Episcopal Relief & Development. “This generous grant recognizes the significance of our work and represents a strategic priority for Episcopal Relief & Development as we strengthen and expand the program in Zambia and Kenya.”

Episcopal Relief & Development is the recipient of one of 17 grants made by the Hilton Foundation’s Young Children Affected by HIV and AIDS Initiative in 2017, which is aimed at addressing the needs of families affected by the disease, particularly children aged 3 and younger.
