St. Joseph Shelter of Hope offers support to orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) mainly by educating them from primary to the university level as well as by providing clothing, food and medical treatment.
St. Joseph Shelter of Hope is both a centre of HOPE to People Leaving With HIV/AIDS (PLWHAS), orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). The centre was mainly started with the intention of assisting and restoring HOPE to those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. However, with time the number of children both orphaned and not orphaned by HIV/AIDS rose due to the scourge and as well as a result of high poverty index in Taita – Taveta County. Consequently, the centre had to incorporate the children as some proved fit academically. As a result of the intake, the students were distributed from nursery schools, primary schools, high schools, colleges to universities.
Your support towards this project will go a long way to ensure the children are supported sufficiently.
