This project will support, mentor, provide free nutritious school meal for 38 OVCs in Nigeria to help keep them in school and forestall their dropping out of school rashly due to neglect, hunger and starvation.

Challenge

This project seeks to address the problem of high rate of school drop out among OVCs in Enugu sub-urban due to discrimination, neglect, hunger, starvation and poverty. Equally the children lack requisite livelihood and vocational skills that can help them to earn income at their spare time through their own efforts. This problem robs our community of the contribution that these children would have made to community development if their potentials were fully developed and gainfully utilized.

Solution

This project will help improve the livelihood and vocational skills of the OVCs, reduce discrimination, improve their access to education, reduce school dropout, and help give the OVCs a real sense of belonging and direction in the community, and help them grow into responsible adults, and be able to assist themselves, as well as other less privileged children thereby creating a multiplier effect in the days ahead.

Long-Term Impact

It is hoped that as this project goal and specific objectives are achieved, it will be able to attract support from individuals and corporate groups for its sustainability. We will strive hard to build long-lasting relationships and work with local community leaders and volunteers to ameliorate the plights of OVCs in our community and work towards permanent reductions in poverty.
