In a certain sense, single moms in Zambia are similar to their American counterparts. They work, they do the best for their kids, they worry about the future, and they get very little sleep. However, there are some very real, very sobering differences. Most single moms in America don’t have to decide between prostitution and starvation. In America there are a lot of social programs, after school care options, and subsidies available to help make ends meet.
In Africa, the choices are much, MUCH more limited.
