Community Based Care
We are supporting adolescents living with HIV and other vulnerable children to improve their welfare. In this program we have initiated “Goats for life Project” whereby we are supporting each family with a goat or a pig as part of economic development and welfare. We are also caring for children and adults with special needs. Our intervention is aiming at improving their psychological and social welfare.
