    The targeted group of the project includes vulnerable children (girls) who are hardcore street children: These children who are living and sleeping on the streets and don’t have contact with their families. Children who are victims of child labour. When parents die (increasingly because of (AIDS) or abandon their children, many of these children can sleep in the houses of their grandparents. During the day the children roam about in streets to ‘scavenge’ for basic needs (food, school fees, clothes, medical attention) because their grandparents do not have means to support them. Abused children: these are children who have an extremely difficult family life. Examples are: ill-treated, physical and/or sexually abused and uncared children. Victims of sexual exploitation, these are those have been voluntary or forced to engage in sexual activities, where being paid or not including forced child marriages and prostitution. Girls who are run from home because of female genital mutilation in our region this practise is common.

    Thank you in advance
