***NOTE: We have been donated the land that we need for this project, reducing our funding requirement by about £200,000.*** Develop a complex comprised of an orphanage to house 200 orphans (boys and girls); a school (primary and secondary); a vocational training centre (embroidery, wood/metal work, driving, mechanical engineering, etc.); and a medical centre to offer primary care to the destitute, cataract operations and specialist care to the physically disabled. The complex would also incorporate a social enterprise, providing office and retail space, and a community/conference centre. The income generated by these would cover most, if not all, of the cost of running the complex. It would also create jobs for local people. The orphans would come out of this complex with good education and real, usable skills which they can use to make a decent life for themselves. The training centre would provide poor people, especially women, with skills they can use to earn a living. The medical centre would help those people who would otherwise suffer because they could not even afford to pay doctors' fees. It would also help a much maligned and hidden group of people - those with physical disabilities. Once the complex is successfully implemented, it can then be repeated throughout the country or region, helping, enabling and empowering people and making them independent and not reliant on charity.
