HOPE IN HEELS
Saturday 30 May 2015
Battersea Park, London
Formal secondary or tertiary study is not a feasible option for many orphaned young people. Early on, many find themselves taking on the role of family breadwinner to support younger siblings.
Local HOPEHIV partners are stepping into this gap with community-based vocational training and entrepreneurship courses, as well as toolkits and small start-up loans. This not only provides a long-term income for orphan households, it stimulates the local economy and helps orphans reintegrate with their community. Access to revolving capital and training also enables project volunteers to generate income and keep projects going and allows guardians to provide better for the orphans in their care.

Traditionally, parents in Africa would teach children their trade but for orphans, safe and sustainable livelihoods are hard to come by.
