We are currently caring for 1,115 Children both through Direct Sponsorship to School and through educating the Widows into Vocational skills that they use to be able to take care of the other Children that we can't reach Directly. These Children range from University students, college, Secondary, Primary through Kindergarten levels.
We recently had a graduation ceremony of 150 Widows who graduated from our different skills that they had been learning for 1 year and a half. These included among others - Tailoring, Making of Art and Crafts and Computer knowledge. Reason for training Widows in these skills is so the community doesn't develop dependency on the organization, but begin initiating ways of looking after more children.
Whenever a financial gift comes in that is not specifically
designated for some other purpose, we channel it to help these orphans by
providing school fees, books, supplies and essential needs. However, we still
have a lot of financial worries for un served children, especially when school
is about to start.
