Summary

Raising money to feed, clothe, educate, house, and provide medical assistance for orphans in Kenya. Each of the orphans is between one and eighteen years old and has AIDS. Our main challenge is to maintain the health of the children since they all have AIDS. Medicine is expensive. The solution is to increase awareness of our need and hope for donations. We are also applying for government grants. The long-term impact of all this is to save lives and help our children become productive citizens

Challenge

Hunger, AIDS, housing, medical care. The major challenge is medicine for the children's AIDS. Medicine is expensive and the price keeps rising. The children also get malaria, monkey pox and other skin diseases. So, survival is our first priority.

Solution

The money we raise will feed the children and provide medical assistance as well as clothe, educate and house them. We are also applying for government grants and continuing to get the villagers more involved in helping. We believe that it "takes a village." So, funding projects, grants, local support, and increasing awareness for the need is paramount.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact is healthy children who grow into compassionate adults. We hope to save lives and nurture a sense of self-esteem in these children so that they can lead productive lives for as long as they live. We encourage these children to be hopeful about the future and give back to their community as well as find life worth living in a time of much turmoil and change.
