YAWE Foundation supports over 500 orphans and vulnerable children and adolescents both socially and psychologically. Most of the children are living with HIV and coming from different sub counties of Kabarole District. Most of the children are in school and a few are not due to financial limitations. YAWE Foundation has organized these youth into support groups so that they can support each other through sharing knowledge and experience.
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.
Currently, we are fully sponsoring 27 pupils/students who are at different levels of education such as primary, secondary, tertiary colleges and vocational skills training. We support the rest of the students with scholastic materials like exercise books, pens, school bags etc. However, due to limited resources we are not in position to support all needy orphans and vulnerable children who are under our program.
