Challenge

The situation analysis done in Soroti in 2015 identified orphans & child headed households, resulting from HIV/AIDS related deaths in Teso. According to Soroti District Lot Quality Assurance survey, 72.8% of the OVC are currently in school & only 24% are supported with school fees, 48.7% with uniform & 52.4% with scholastic materials (Soroti District Development Plan 2011/12 - 2015/16). Cases of child neglect, abandonment, defilement & early pregnancies continue to characterize the OVCs

Solution

It will help Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) & their house holds to carry out Income Generating Activities (IGAs) to deal with poverty, trauma, unemployment plus food insecurity & nutrition. The project will work with 50 out of school OVCs to help them start their own jobs like saloons, restaurants, sewing services, & carpentry after accessing technical training in vocational schools.

Long-Term Impact

we will provide 25 children with books, pens, pencils, bags and uniform to enable them attend school. We shall empower 50 caregiver through income generation,allowing them rise out of poverty and it will be a base for supporting OVCs. We will provide 50 with start up capital for opening saloons, poultry farms, carpentry workshops among others as a way of sustaining themselves and creating jobs.
