The elderly grandparents who care for most of our 200 orphans have become trapped between expectation and reality. They expected their own children to care for them as they aged, but AIDS wiped out a huge chunk of that generation, leaving grandparents to cope both with aging and the needs of young children. We help them find ways to earn income. project reportread updates from the field
