OVC intervention at Gede

A reader’s question to my last blog, “what has become of the four children of this couple?” (who are now complete orphans) brings to mind again the project Gede Foundation is conducting for Orphans and Vulnerable children (OVC). Bantu is from a family of seven children who have been left to fend for themselves. He stays with his eldest brother at Gishiri and was at the verge of going out to the streets (with all the attendant risks) to start begging for a living when Gede Foundation encountered him. He was selected using the Gede Foundation guidelines for Skill Acquisition Programme for OVCs and enrolled. Today he is being empowered as an apprentice tailor. Please contact (Mr Godwin Etim – godwin@gedefoundation.org) for further details on our OVC program
