Zambia

The beauty of Zambia, with its numerous national parks and countless waterfalls, of which the Victoria Falls of the Zambezi are the most famous, is offset by mountains of problems. An ailing education system, malnutrition, lack of access to running water are just a few. The latter, although the country actually has considerable water resources. HIV contributes to the general misery.
