|AIDS ORPHANS PROJECT|
The Project is a collaborative efforts of the Maryknoll Brothers and the Maryknoll Mission Association in the Archdiocese of Mombasa. It works with the Community Base Health Care & AIDS Relief Project (CHBC) and currently serves six areas of Mombasa.
orphans identified are not only impoverished, abandoned, and stigmatized,
they have no sense of security, empowerment and social adjustment.
There is need to expand the assistance beyond school education
through an outreach program such as workshops focusing on family life,
(HIV/AIDS) and civic development/awareness.
More importantly, to provide counseling to enable them to express
and share themselves. Of
equal importance is to give guardians support and know-how to deal with
orphans concerns i.e. providing family life and basic needs.
Years 2003: 153 orphans & 67 parent/guardians

To be a sign of hope to orphans and their family support that God
does care and has not abandoned them.
To enhance support for orphans and their family/guardians by
creating a healthy environment.
