Orphans Childrens Education Programmes
Educational status is an important indicator of children’s wellbeing and future life opportunities. It can predict growth potential and economic viability of a state. While this is an ideal situation for all children, the case may be different for orphans and vulnerable children due to the challenges they go through on a daily basis.
In our project area number of Orphan, Semi Orphan and Street Children are found. The problem of orphan / street children is acute due to urbanization and industrialization. Due to the deaths of HIV/AIDS affected persons, Re-marriage of deserted / widowed / divorce women, absence of love and security in the families, Family disputes, these or-phan and street children are left without care and support. Therefore, we envisage main-streaming these children in the national building by providing Financial supporting, to educate them through our Home Care and Child Support Programme.
An especial concern for programmes seeking to enable the access to quality educa-tion of orphans and vulnerable children is the needs of girl children. As is well known, girls’ education frequently falls behind that of boys for a whole host of reasons. These in-clude factors such as parents’ and care-givers’ decision to prioritize the use of scarce re-sources on the education of boys and cultural expectations on the division of labour that make girls more likely to have tasks that prevent them from attending school such as household chores or caretaking of younger siblings or sick members of the family. Vul-nerability is likely only to exacerbate the impact of such factors, creating a vicious cycle in which the vulnerable girl child becomes ever more likely to become the mother of vulnerable children.
The project paid school fees for pupils coming from poor backgrounds as part of the sponsorship agenda. The school fees sponsorship intervention has enabled some ben-eficiary children to realize their full educational potential through improved school per-formance.
We initiated the Orphan Education Supporting Programme in AP for this type of childrens . Since two years we are continuing this programme for poor and orphan chil-drens. For this year we reached to about 120 children. This is a best opportunity to in-crease their educational statistics. We are going to increase the strength of the children with the kind cooperation of donors and government to uplift from poverty and orphanity.
Some of our sponsored children, who are settled in the jobs are donating 10% of the salary in every month to our organization. This is one of the best opportunity to our organization to utilize the contributions from who are utilized the opportunity provided by SEEP.
