PROJECT REVIEW INTRODUCTION:
In the last decade Kenya as a community has faced HIV and AIDS related challenges and deaths among most of its population.
Kenya has the third highest number of HIV/AIDS orphans in the world, estimated at 890,000. Kenya has a shockingly large number of HIV/AIDS victims. Many mothers and fathers leave their young ones with neighbors or grandparents. This causes a heavy burden on the caretakers because of their limited ability to care for an additional child. More than 1000 people die daily due to HIV/AIDS in Kenya, this doesn’t include the number of deaths causes by Malaria, accidents and other diseases. Statistically, the number of orphans is growing, in Kenya, and Africa as a whole.
Kenya has 0.16% of these orphans: about 1 million orphans living either in the streets, with the villagers, or with relatives. More than 3.8 million people in Kenya are living with HIV/AIDS and as the disease progresses, are likely to leave more than 2 million orphaned children. As this epidemic increases, there will be innumerable orphans wandering the streets in Kenya. These destitute children are found in villages and on city streets.
Several things can happen to children when their parents die from HIV and AIDS –related causes. It is very common, in many Kenyan streets and villages, to find these destitute children along the highways and on the street corners desperately begging for a shilling. Some live at the municipal town garbage bins where they scavenge for any remains of scraps of food. Others will be found sniffing glue, as a way to kill hunger pains. Many of the young girls start prostitution at a very early age, as young as 5 years old, to seek a living. Other street children turn into pick-pockets and thieves.
HOPE FOR ORPHANS CENTRE:
Is a Christian belief founded organ. It seeks to support the orphans in meeting the very basic human needs and educational requirements.
These activity goals are accomplished through trainings, supporting care for orphans as fees payment and Spiritual needs. The project is undertaken to improve the economic social and Spiritual lives within the community and country.
VISION OF HOPE FOR ORPHANS CENTRE
To provide all round care, encompassing Spiritual, health, physical and emotional care for orphans from the community around and beyond, be a leading education and sustainable development service provider to the orphan child in the view of:
1. Man has a need to live a healthy life.
2. Man has a need to have shelter, food, education, medication and clothing.
3. Man has a need to have a good relationship with God and others in the community.
HOPE FOR ORPHANS CENTRE MISSION:
To guide and support care for orphans in our community by promotion of: Social care, health care education and necessities-to compound basic human needs and beyond.
Hope for orphans Centre as a fellowship project doesn’t have all the orphans reside in the home and therefore some of the orphans are placed under the caretakers who are some church members. In this scheme an orphan is identified and enrolled with Hope for Orphans Centre. The orphan then resides with caretakers alongside the caretakers’ family. Since there is an added cost and strain on available resources on taking up an extra child, the caretaker is allocated support and relief by Hope for Orphans Centre.
Currently Hope for Orphans Centre is supporting the care for 27 orphans aged 5-13 years old.
