Why They Need Help

Orphans in countries such as South Africa and Kenya need all the help they can get. Schooling and training are their greatest hope for a bright future, and with no parents to help, we must reach out to them. For many orphans, even the cost of a required school uniform is enough to prevent them from attending school.

These children are more vulnerable to health problems such as malnutrition, malaria, and tuberculosis, as well as exploitation and abuse from others. Education is a safety net which can help to break the cycle of poverty, and educated children are also less likely to be infected by the HIV virus.
