They begun with 1 piglet, 1 chicken and can now subsist

When this project begun with entrepreneurship skills training and the provision of widow own selected micro enterprises/items (piglets, chicken, goats etc) little did we know that these would mean a lot and add value to the lives of victims of the impact created by HIV/AIDS.

 In the past 3 months our staff has been monitoring and had the opportunity to interact with visited widows and their orphaned dependents. It was learned that the project had added a lot of value to their once limping living conditions. Widows were busy working with their ‘Out of school’ adolescents opting for piggery chicken rearing, and local fruit and snack retailing.

Orphaned girls –daughters to the widows can now afford basic needs like body jelly and sanitary kits. This has safeguarded them from seeking sex tied gifts from men and adults who are found of infecting them with HIV/AIDS through aggravated cross-generational sex.

Most of these girls now feel that they would like to go back to school or be equipped with vocational skills like hair dressing. Our esteemed supporters how can we meet that need?
