Challenge

HIV/AIDS kills 700 Kenyans daily, turning thousands of children into helpless orphans. Poor families lose all savings, capital and income to the costs of nursing the sick. Children are forced out of school and some as young as 5 years suddenly become breadwinners for their younger siblings. The beneficiaries are the orphans and the families caring for them.

Solution

Meeting short-term education and healthcare costs of the orphans; providing business start-up capital, mentoring and market linkage to families caring for orphans; enabling families to generate income.

Long-Term Impact

Will build economic capacity of families to provide for education, health care and other needs of HIV/AIDS orphans, enabling such orphans to grow into productive members of society.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
