This project targets to help Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) through the provision of psycho-social support and building structures in the community. In addition to that, the project is also incapacitating fostering parents by providing them with Avocados seedling so that they establish their own Avocado farming business that would enable them to get money to help their families. Prior to all these, fostering parents are given training in a proper family upbringing in relation to the project objective.
