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. 

 

AIDS 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, spiritual/social,  health (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
