Description

In this project we'll work with a community development group which was founded in the year 2015 by a group of community members who were concerned about the various factors affecting the community without social structure to address them. The group achieves its objective through seeing a just and healthy society, which is able to address the issues and needs of orphans and vulnerable members of the society. They do this through seeking and building capacities of communities to be self-reliant and enabling the community members to improve their living standards, enhancing the provision of basic needs to the orphans and vulnerable children through a comprehensive support system.

The group also addresses jiggers eradication, HIV/AIDS awareness and drugs and substance abuse within the community. The group has also been participating in many events such as community health outreach, school education programs and agricultural field days to empower the community to be self-reliant. The group has also made significant achievements like medicare and jiggers treatment through outreach sessions where the vulnerable members are assessed and treated.
