This project is aimed to give 200 orphaned children access to public education, after school tutoring and life - skills training. Education is development. It creates choices and opportunities for children, reducing poverty and diseases, and gives them a voice in society. Investing in children's education is important to avoid the greater long term costs of not educating children and leaving them vulnerable to abuses, poverty, and a life with little hope for the future.
