MAMA ORPHANS CHILDREN HOME, BUSIA  (KENYA)

As regards sponsorships SidEcole is at present active in 6 programmes and provides assistance to over 1400 children and young people. Preference is given to basic education, which is why most of the children are at primary school; a smaller number of young people are in secondary school and vocational training. Tuition fees, books, study materials, uniforms, shoes and sometimes meals are covered. The poorest families also receive food rations.

Slum area of Kabowa: Essential help for Have Mercy Orphan School (130 children), a primary school in dire need, whose teachers are all voluntary staff. A traditional healer founded it with MSF Theta within their framework of collaboration for the prevention of Aids. (See pictures)

School against Aids/SidEcole finances small construction projects such as repairs to classroom floors, roofs, latrines, water tanks, stairs, blackboards etc…. Funds are also provided for schemes that aim to improve hygiene and the prevention of diseases, to provide mattresses, mosquito nets, soap, clean water, sanitary pads and to pay the cost of transport to visit the hospital for Aids testing and the purchase of a medical bag. The association also contributes to the setting up of sewing workshops by providing sewing machines and basic materials for arts and crafts in order to help the older children to develop professional skills.
