Community Care Project Trust is a faith based Not for Profit organization situated in Sub-Saharan Africa in Lilongwe, Malawi. Our main focus is to promote and improve the quality of life of people affected and infected by the HIV infection through providing comprehensive and holistic care to adolescent/youth, Orphaned and Vulnerable Children and the community at large. We break the silence caused by the epidemic by conducting door to door HIV Testing & Counselling, encourage voluntary disclosure of HIV status, appointment reminders, Psycho-social support groups, adherence counselling and referrals for ARVs.
There are so many children in our streets who are begging because they lack parental guidance and care. Some of these children are girls who end up in our streets selling sex, and some have turned up heading households at a tender age because there is no one to look after their siblings due to death of both parents leaving them in destitute and no one to turn to and these result into child molestation, sexual harassment & abuse, teenage pregnancies, school drop outs, drug, alcohol and substance abuse, and child trafficking. There is a problem of Early and forced girl child marriages currently where little and tender and young girls are forced into marriage with sugar dads because they are vulnerable and cannot speak for themselves. Let us campaign up to help these vulnerable populations, because next time it could be our child.
Let us help in raising money to support their education, daily living expenses and help them start their own gardens by supplying them with farm inputs such as seedlings, maize seeds and fertilizer to promote sustainability and ownership.
