What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Poverty, ignorance, illiteracy, disease and above all HIV/AIDS are major challenges in the community. That is why many children are orphans. There is high rate of school dropouts, and as a result most girls who have dropped out of school are vulnerable to child labour, child prostitution, child trafficking, child forced marriages and HIV new infections high rates.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will restore hope in the lives of orphans. These orphans will continue with their education at primary, secondary, colleges and university. Through education these orphans will be empowered for self reliance. Through health care and nutritional support the vulnerable orphans who are HIV positive will be assisted and live longer.
Potential Long Term Impact
The empowered orphans through education, care and support will be self-reliant and this will enable them contribute positively to the community economic growth. This will be an indicator of long term impact of the project in the community. The project will also reduce self denial among vulnerable children in the community. Discrimination of orphans will also be reduced by this project.
