Care & support services are being provided to 30 HIV orphan children in India. All children are provided good quality food, health care and nutrition. They need to visit health care facilities on regular basis. Transporting them through public transport is difficult and sometimes its not possible to found vacant seats in public transport for these children. That is why we need to hire one bus to provide them regular health care and education services and make them involved in social activities.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
HIV orphan children belong to the most neglected community due to discrimination attached with HIV. 30 children are full time residing into orphanage being run by the organization. They need to visit health care centre and school regularly. Transporting them through public transport is difficult due to their health related vulnerability. Providing them transport will be helpful in maintaining their health and also ensure regular education.
How will this project solve this problem?
Providing transport to HIV orphan children will improve their health because of regular visits to health care centre. All children could be attending formal education centres on constant basis. The quality of life will be improved and ensure will being of children. Transporting 30 children from public transport from one place to other is difficult and sometimes pose greater risk due to their vulnerability.
Potential Long Term Impact
Overall quality of life of HIV infected and affected children will be improved. Better health, education and their participation in social activities will be helpful in making responsible citizen.
