Orphans and Vulnerable Children Care and Support



Providing care & support to orphans & vulnerable children by facilitating education, good nutrition, counseling, healthcare, income generating activities & HIV/AIDS education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Siaya District is one of the most HIV/AIDS affected districts in Kenya with high number of needy orphans. Adequate Health care is not easily accessible and has high costs in this poor rural area; by the time patients have died, their caregiver relatives and their dependant children are destitute. Because of this and the stigma attached to AIDS, few people in this area are able to support orphans, whose numbers have grown. This project will support orphans by working through schools and community

How will this project solve this problem?

Schools feeding programme, scholarships and provision of school supplies, counseling, medical care, trainings on HIV prevention and care, give micro grants to orphans’ guardians to start businesses and provision of basic domestic needs.

Potential Long Term Impact

Orphans that are Well-nourished, learning & completing primary education, receiving appropriate health care, self reliance and ability to meet basic needs by Orphans’ guardians. Community acceptance of HIV/AIDS orphans and reduction in HIV incidence
