Challenge

Figures from UN AIDS report 2008 reported that the prevalence of the HIV infection in Cameroon was as high as 15%, this is the second highest value in the world. Many people living with HIV face not only health issues but may also struggle to make ends meet economically. The disease also leaves many orphaned and vulnerable children. SEREP gives OVCs in Kumbo the opportunity to go to school and get an education allowing them to become economically independent. There are too many OVCs to support.

Solution

The project provides the school fees and material items required to educate an orphan child. It offers the child a commercial and vocational education level to write national vocational qualification or GCE O level improving their employability. It allows the child to concentrate 100% on school without financial and material worries. Above all, restores hope for the future on orphaned and vulnerable children.

Long-Term Impact

SEREP will educate 50 extra OVCs offering economic stability to them and their extended families or Care givers. It keeps them off the streets and gives the pupils a support network and a future which has been taken away from them by HIV/AIDS or other situations that might have caused them to become vulnerable. Kumbo community can prosper if more is done in this regard.
