Boarding and Care Facility for AIDS Orphans

Posted | Comments Off

As an extension of the concept of care for AIDS orphans, P2P established a boarding and care facility for orphan girl students in good academic standing in the rural town of Amanuel at Machakel District in Eastern Gojjam in collaboration with the local community. At present, 20 outstanding young women are boarded at the facility and 20 more young women who attend the same school receive sponsorship in order to prevent them from dropping out of school or ending up living on the street.

Besides regular schooling, the students are exposed to various activities such as farming, bee keeping, and grinding meal. The program has created a diverse interest in the students, while concurrently generating much needed income for the facility. By utilizing the already existing local schools, the boarding facility provides scholarship for outstanding AIDS orphans and assists them in reaching their life’s potential by providing for their needs, be they psychological, social, educational, medical, or other.
