Vocational Training for Orphans and Unemployed Youth.
The orphans and unemployed youth in Nairobi slums Kenya are engaging themselves in activities leading them to prostitution, drug abuse, taking excessive alcohol, criminal cases and other bad behaviour. Many of them have no sources of income and they live in abject poverty and are completely traumatized. As a result of many problems majority of orphans and unemployed youth are experiencing deepening poverty, enormous mental stress, and profound sense of insecurity. Several orphans lack basic needs, enough food and are malnourished, lack clothes and blankets: most orphans wear rags and they live below poverty line. These orphans and unemployed youth have low self-esteem and little sense of security, poorly educated, with poor social skills and minimal life chances to pull themselves out of poverty and have little chance to become productive, self-sufficient citizens and parents.
Some of the orphans and unemployed youth sleep on the pavement unprotected and forced to beg or steal for survival, while others are constantly exposed to the risk of violence and exploitation. Not only do they have to protect themselves from other unemployed youth but also from adults including police, security guards and ordinary citizens who regularly beat them up and some are imprisoned. Needless to say, girls are even more at risk of violence and exploitation. They not only get beaten, but also are sexually abused and assaulted by the adults and other youth. Many take to drugs or sniffing glue to help them cope with brutality of their lives.Therefore GROWTH PROJECT organization requests for your kind donation to help the orphans to support their future. Any donation will be highly appreciated.
