CHILDREN AND WOMEN - HOLISTIC CARE
CHILDREN: 45,5 % of the nation of 24 Million people consist out of children under 14 years of age. Another 21 % of the population is between 15 and 24 years of age. That makes nearly 66,5 % of the nation under the age of 25. The youth dependency rate is more that 88 %. With nearly half of the population illiterate and with very limited health services and hardly any clean water in RURAL areas where we work. Schools and libraries are desperately needed . We currently train more than 400 children and help government schools with more than 5 000 children to provide literacy and character training.
WOMEN: We currently have more than 4 000 women in our program which uses the Bible to read and write. Female life expectancy in schools is only up to the age of 9 years due to cultural beliefs. We are changing that by bringing women together to have the opportunity to read and write.
ORPHANS: We currently work and help more than 1 700 orphans to read and write and in a country with more than 1 000 0000 orphans out of 24 million people. The demands are high as orphans grow daily due to high mortality rates of parents.
PROVIDING SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS: Due to flooding and dry spells local people are struggling to provide for families. We distribute water pumps to hungry communities to help them take care of their crops in a sustainable way
To set up sustainable projects for children, women and bring forth transformational change in communities and family units so they have chance to help themselves.
We already have sustainable projects in place and serve communities through several projects: These include -
- 3 Bush clinics
- 2 Pre-schools
