Transcript

  • 1. Humana People to People - Schools for ChildrenSome 5.2 million children in Sub-Saharan Africa became orphans in 2003. The need for homes and schools forstreet children and orphans is so huge, that it is an international and global responsibility. Humana People toPeople’s member associations in Southern Africa started in the 1980’s to respond by establishing the first schoolsfor children, who had not started school because they had been displaced by wars or because of lack of schools.Today there are 13 schools for children, who are orphans, street children or children with difficulties.Humana People to People’s Schools for Children started as part of Child Aid programs in 1990, targeting streetchildren from some of the largest cities. The idea was to create a new home, and to increase the primary schoolpossibilities of the children, many had dropped out of school. In both Angola and Mozambique the wars hadresulted in many children being displaced in their own country. Since that time the situation for many children has changed. In addition to taking care of abandoned children,another need has risen: to take care of the many children orphaned by AIDS.The table below shows the number of Children’s Towns and Street Children’s Schools in Mozambique, Angola,Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe that Humana People to People have set up.
