Situation

The project is trying to alleviate child poverty, bridge the education gap and create opportunities for disadvantage and often neglected children. The prevailance of aids/hiv in sub-sahara Africa has led to more children dying young or ending up in streets because they have no one to look after and provide for them. This project aims to bridge this gap by providing education, training and therefore giving some of these children a future.

Solution

The project will provide in the first place counselling as well as basic education equipment like books, uniforms etc. It will also pay the children's school fees and place them into apprenticeships after basic eudcation so that they can learn and aquire employment skils.
