Orphan children are under served due to lack of parental care, as a result, children are forced to work and live on the street to fulfill their basic needs. They are likely to drop out or have low academic performance. So that, our organization committed to improve the academic performance by purchasing education materials including school uniform, facilitating tutor class and providing supplementary snack for 80 orphan children residing in the slum villages of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
In general in Ethiopia and in particular in the target area, orphan children are marginalized and discriminated due to poor economic situation and lack of awareness. Orphan children are suffering and forced to be isolated from their peer groups, community and their academic achievement is poor. So that, orphan children deserve to get support and improve their academic performance.
Facilitate to bring a long lasting change by way of supporting orphan children to improve their academic performance and create community awareness to provide social and other support.
Orphan children will be able to realize their dreams and protected from hazardous living situation. Furthermore, community attitude will be improved and the social system will be supportive to accompany orphan children.
