This project provides initial education and healthcare sponsorship to HIV/AIDS orphans. Families will get training and business start-up capital so they can further support the orphans.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
HIV/AIDS kills 700 Kenyans daily, turning thousands of children into helpless orphans. Poor families lose all savings, capital and income to the costs of nursing the sick. Children are forced out of school and some as young as 5 years suddenly become breadwinners for their younger siblings. The beneficiaries are the orphans and the families caring for them.
How will this project solve this problem?
Meeting short-term education and healthcare costs of the orphans; providing business start-up capital, mentoring and market linkage to families caring for orphans; enabling families to generate income.
Potential Long Term Impact
Will build economic capacity of families to provide for education, health care and other needs of HIV/AIDS orphans, enabling such orphans to grow into productive members of society.
