Orphan and vulnerable children who have either lost one or both parents live in extreme poverty with their guardians with little access to basic needs. Brave Hearts' educational project covers children's school fees, tutorial lessons, after school meals, school uniforms and materials. Children receive after school meals and tutorial lessons at our drop in center with a library and other services. Brave Hearts helps these children build a bright future through quality education and holistic care.
Orphan and vulnerable children make up of about 12% of all children in Ethiopia as reported by Save the Children UK. These children who have lost one or both parents, mostly due to HIV/AIDS, live in extreme poverty with their guardians, are highly vulnerable and have no access to basic needs. After losing one or both of their parents, most of these children are forced to drop out of school to support themselves, their single parents or their guardians who are usually their elder grandparents.
Brave Hearts education project supports orphan and vulnerable children to stay in school and succeed by covering their school fees, providing them with school bags, uniforms and materials. The project also delivers quality education by providing the children additional tutorial lessons after school. The children have access to healthy after school meals so they remain energized and focused on their studies at our drop in center. Children previously in this project are now studying in university.
Brave Hearts works to create sustainable environments where children who are most at risk in the community can thrive and create a bright future for themselves through quality education and holistic care. The 20 children supported through this project will be able to succeed in their education and go on to support themselves and their guardians in the future. With your support, this project will make a sustainable impact in enabling the children to overcome poverty and transform their lives!
