Challenge

In the many communities around Jinja area are many households run by a single grandparent with 6,7,8 or more grandchildren. The grandparents are overtaxed by generating income and taking care of children specifically those infected with HIV. Children drop out of school because they cannot afford to pay the school uniform and other fees. Even to produce food for their own subsistence is difficult and often not sufficient for the daily meals of the family.

Solution

The project will support the grandmothers with children's education, provide clothing, beddings, help grandmothers to start an income generating activity and help with household food security.

Long-Term Impact

The project will oversee 120 grandmothers to be in position to provide sustainable childcare
