The project is run by Chinseu Community Based Organisation. The death of young adults from HIV-AIDS and associated illnesses has left many orphans to be cared for by the community. The CBO makes it possible for children to live with volunteer families by providing food and other necessities. Volunteer caregivers also provide a safe play and learning space for the orphans and other vulnerable children under-five. Children, Teenagers creates dramas, to explore human and child rights activities.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Chinseu CBO recognises that; -The number of orphans is increasing at a staggering rate in our area. The ability of the fostering families to take care of orphans on a long term basis is restricted by their poor financial resources.
How will this project solve this problem?
Chinseu CBO is supporting the fostering families in the villages by providing the children with food and other essential items.
Potential Long Term Impact
Chinseu CBO's long term aim is to support the children and their carers into adult hood. When he children go to school they receive school feeding so Chinseu CBO's support turn to providing school materials, one meal a day and club based play opportunities.
