WHAT WE DO
Many of the 140+ caregivers that work with the Orphan Welfare Agenda live in inadequate housing. Many caregivers share one room with the children they care for, our project aims to expand and improve homes to provide a more suitable living environment.
The project launched in 2014 and has been a great success, several caregivers whom were sharing one room with the children they care for have now benefited from having separate living and cooking areas through the building of additional rooms to their properties.
Volunteers in partnership with local tradesmen helped in the building of the structures to roof level using traditional building methods and materials. Professional tradesmen then completed the roofing, interior and flooring.
- 14 additional rooms built in 7 Caregiver homes.
