Challenge

UNAIDS estimates that Uganda has about 2.73 million orphans (below the age of 18), nearly half of whom have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. The UNICEF Child Poverty and Deprivation report 2015, indicates 55% of children live under multi-dimensional poverty and are deprived of 2 or more of their rights. 24% of the children live in extreme poverty, and as poverty levels become more acute, children drop out of school. This project will serve over 120 orphans that are not in school.

Solution

The project will provide school fees, scholastic material and lunch to HIV positive orphans that are not in school plus training in tailoring and start up kits to adolescent HIV positive children not in school. The children's care givers will be trained in improved sustainable farming that includes rearing goats, chicken and growing crops. The care givers will also teach other people in the village to share their new knowledge with their neighbors.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 120 caregivers allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their childrens continued education and their families' health plus well-being.
