BENEFITING: GIVE HOPE FIGHT POVERTY
Swaziland may be ignored as a blip on the map if not for it having the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence in the world at over 42% HIV+. AIDS related deaths have left over 120,000 orphaned and vulnerable children which far exceeds the number of potential caregivers. This has resulted in a child-headed household phenomenon where children, some as young as 12 years old, have become the heads of their households and forced to raise their younger brothers and sisters with no food, education, or adult support.
With your help, we can make real differences in the lives of these kids! This November, Give Hope, Fight Poverty will travel with a team of volunteers to:
~ Paint a mural at our new Elementary GHFP school
~Paint a mural at our new Elementary GHFP school
~ Pay the tuition of a child-headed household orphans for the 2014 school year
~ Implement an emergency 1259 student feeding program for orphans with food scarcity
~ Implement our child-headed household emergency feeding program
~Create an income generation program for the eLangeni village
Recently giving my life over to Christ, combined with my passion for working with/adopting/and changing the lives of children has given me the inspiration to journey to a third world country on a mission trip. This experience would provide me with the opportunity to not only make differences in children's lives but also allow me to share God's love.
Please consider lending a hand to educate and empower orphans in rural Swaziland. All donations will go toward trip expenses, as well as buying toys and clothes for the children prior to leaving. All excess funds will be donated to the organization to help in implementing their programs. Give Hope, Fight Poverty is a registered 501c3 nonprofit consisting entirely of volunteers. Your tax-deductible donation (either of the requested items below or money) will be used to help combat hunger, prevent illiteracy, and provide sustainable solutions to ease the impact of HIV on young lives.
