Challenge

Orphaned children and those living in poverty where we work are more likely to repeat a grade, decreasing their chances of finishing school and reaching a better future. Further more, over 80% of the community population have no viable source of income. This has accelerated the vicious cycle of poverty and high illiteracy rates because it is nearly impossible for families to educate their children making it difficult for the residents to get access to services and opportunities.

Solution

The center will offer a variety of crucial benefits for the kids, all supporting our goal of breaking their cycle of poverty. It will offer the following facilities and programs: Education Center with computer lab and public library, Education for Out-Of-School Children (OOSC), Early & primary education enrichment program, Food security & nutrition program, Vocational education program and Community development & parent/teacher training

Long-Term Impact

The community center won't just improve the lives of kids. It will also lifts up the entire community!
