Challenge

An estimated 1.5 million people live with HIV/AIDS in Uganda, of whom nearly 100,000 are children under 15, according to UNAIDS. Katakwi district currently has over 500 children receiving HIV medication. Majority of them have lost both or one parent to HIV/AIDS, they are poor, malnourished and cannot afford nutritious food or meet their basic school requirements. This has made these children either abandon taking their medications all together or drop out of school to fend for their needs.

Solution

The project will provide nutritious foods, tuition fees and other basic school requirements to 100 total orphans living with HIV/AIDs. Each target child will on monthly basis receive 10 Kgs of nutritious flour (mix of soya, millet) for porridge, 15 Kgs of Maize flour, 5 Kgs of Beans, 1 liter of cooking oil. Besides, the project will pay the tuition fees, provide school uniform and other scholastic materials to each of the children every school term. Counseling will be provided to the children.

Long-Term Impact

Overall improvement in the quality of life of children living with HIV/AIDS. There will be improved adherence to HIV drugs among these children ensuring they live longer. Children living with HIV will have access to quality education hence ensuring their rights to education is promoted.
