With more than 41% of the population under 15 years old Africa is the youngest of all the continents. In Kenya about half of the country is younger than 15 years. Many cannot read or write and come from difficult family backgrounds and poor economic situations.
It is our responsibility to help them.
Turkana Child Care Project (TCCP) Lodwar/Kenia since 2003
HIV/AIDS is spreading rapidly in the Turkana area. Many of the adults die at middle age and leave their children orphaned – often confused, neglected and misused and in need of help. Orphans are vulnerable children and need special care. According to African cultural traditions the care for orphans is the responsibility of the child’s extended family. TCCP seeks to strengthen this concept by helping with:
- Family integration
- Food and medical care
- Direct help for the orphan
- Material and moral support
