This project will build secure accommodation and provide self sufficiency of orphans in a manner that will encourage them to grow into stable and mature men and women and contribute to the community in which they live in. 20 children live in a rented building and sleep ten to a room, there are more than 1000 AIDS orphans in Mpigi district where we work, their care takers have no food supplies and accommodation for them, thus end up wandering in streets, support them come to the orphanage.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Twenty children live in a rented building and sleep ten to a room. We previously owned a building, but the government forced us to move without giving compensation for the building we lost because it was near the bar, a few individual people contribute some times for rent. Funding for the orphanage is so low that saving money to buy or purchase a building is essentially impossible. The children also have limited funds for food and school fees.
How will this project solve this problem?
There is need for construction of housing to accommodate100 orphans, including accommodation for carers. It is anticipated that each building will accommodate 10 children with a separate room for the house mother.
Potential Long Term Impact
It is anticipated that a number of micro-businesses will be established within the immediate surrounding area to assist local villagers to benefit from this development, it is feasible to conservatively assume that the local people involved in this venture should earn in excess of 30,000 shillings (15 dollars) per month.
