Über das Projekt

The Friends Foundation is a locally based non-profit and non-governmental organisation which was first registered in 1994. Its overall goal is to assist families and communities in caring for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). We strive to provide the children with appropriate care, attention and formal education, preferably within their own families or community.

The Objective of The Friends Foundation is...
To Provide holistic care and protection (safe, stable, and suitable home-based placement) services to OVC within a supportive foster care system (by establishing and providing effective and reliable foster care services in the project community).

To Mobilize material and logistical resources through fundraising to support project plans and activities.

To Provide quality formal education services to OVC to enable them to reach their full potential.

To Recruit, Assess, & Train foster care volunteers & public health & social workers to support & manage OVC care (education on health, Nutrition, hygiene, immunizations, etc.)

To Access Government social protection intervention – direct cash or in-kind benefits to OVC, orphan heads of households, elderly foster care parents, extended family caretakers, & foster families to finance school fees & other added expenses neccessary for the care of OVC (through LEAP, Capitation Grant, School Feeding Programme, etc.).

To Facilitate sustainable livelihoods & income generation – Friends Foundation will provide skills training & inputs for:
•Adult OVC (vocational & technical training e.g. farming & other employable skills, etc. to access NYEP).
•Volunteers and/or foster parents will be assisted through the Agricultural input support programme: in vegetable gardening (through community vegetable gardens) & in the rearing of fowls & goats; to raise income for supporting the children.

To establish a Community Micro Credit Scheme (small loans) to increase income levels and also promote good money management among project beneficiaries.
