Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

We have identified 1300 children and young people in need, who have suffered from violence and have very little or no access to education and training.

  • 50% of these victims are orphans 
  • 30% are single parent underprivileged children living in poverty 
  • 20% are teenage mothers.

In June, 2014 we launched an ongoing project designed to empower these children through formal and informal education (vocational). Our impact so far - 260 children out of the 1300 identified are benefiting from this educational project. 

The project also seeks to create a rehabilitation centre for vulnerable and homeless children including their teenage mothers. In this centre they are offered care and training/education projects and also modern organic farming practices are delivered to educate families about sustainable agriculture. This agricultural project is delivered to help families understand the long-term potential of boosting agricultural productivity and improving the availability of good quality food, to help alleviate their poverty.

We need a fundraising expert who can help us to identify and approach new funding streams so that we can support more vulnerable families living in poverty. For example - support with creating fundraising campaigns, researching and writing bids for funding from international donor organizations/foundations or institutions, Philanthropist and potential donors who can support our work.
