Describe the need affecting the community.

Life is difficult for abused and abandoned children all over the country. Social reintegration for us is the biggest concern for the children under our care.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

This project has ensured a decent life for many orphan and abused boys and girls since year 2000. All the children we care for have benefited from this program. Some of them have graduated from high school and even from the university. This year we have 8 candidates in high school working towards becoming eligible to start their bachelors degree in the next academic year at the university. We expect to continue reintegrating our children in the society and whenever it is possible, give them the means to become self sufficient.

Describe the primary goal of the project.

Caring for children is the primary goal of this project. Family and social reintegration are the results we hope to achieve.

Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project.

A better life for the Jamaa Letu community. Inspire other people to achieve the same goals: No children and orphans in the streets. No more abuses toward children. More understanding, love and compassion toward children and people in need.
