October 31, 2007 (FPRC) -- The initiation for orphan's program grew out as a result of an increase in the number of orphans in Wagusu and Abimbo village and also the pace at which school drop-out has increased and pathetic living condition due to lack of support once they loose their parents. They are left to find food and clothing for themselves and in many cases sometimes forced the girls to resort to commercial sex placing them at higher risk of contracting HIV/AIDS or work for other people making them more prone to abuse and exploitation just to provide for their siblings.
The organization therefore identified, as a priority to start a child care program to cater for the orphans and the vulnerable.
Supporting the destitute children in the community has been a great challenge. This has been as a result of poverty in the area with the increasing cases of HIV/AIDS scourge, which has contributed to neglect of children.
It is against this background that Home Adventure created a child care program for orphaned children. Many orphans are left with their sick parents who are sometimes too weak to look after them, old grand parents who cannot afford to even sustain themselves are left with the responsibility of looking after their grandchildren or live with their relatives who mistreat them. Some of the children are HIV positive and needs much more attention of which they don't get and eventually dies from preventable illness.
Our goal is to give hope to orphaned vulnerable children. This involves regular home visits, provision of counseling services, clothing and sponsorship through school fees and learning aids for orphans in primary school and other basic needs.
The program runs on Monday through Friday and the children come to the resource centre in the afternoon to do their homework with the assistance of volunteers and play together. In every visit we provide food either rae or cooked to the family, clothes, medical check-ups, psychological and emotional support.
Volunteer to give hope to the children and make a difference in their lives.
We appeal to well wishers, Companies, Organizations to assist us reach out for these orphans by Donating clothes, food to a starving child, books and uniforms or Sponsor a poor orphan to get education.
