Hello my dear brothers and sisters! How are you doing?
Am appealing to you to pay attention to this story because it is me and you to help forgotten child. By names am Kawula Michael who lives in Buvuuma district where emotions and tears starts from in young children and the elders at large.
My brothers, you can't believe this; in Buvuma island children are no longer accessing education and are living un happy life due to the following factors below;Some children are orphans and vulnerable because their parents died as a result of HIV/AIDS infection.
Therefore they are no longer having possibilities to attain education despite having UPE in the community, children have lacked direction therefore they do resort into crime as a source of income.Many survive through gambling which is costing them, sorrow point to remember!, some of these children are infected with HIV/AIDS infections which requires them to be given medical attentions as well as counseling.
Orphans and Vulnerable Children Program (OVC)
The OVC Program empowers orphans and vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to build a foundation of action and hope for a healthy and sustainable future by offering every eligible OVC within Buvuma catchment area access to education, protection, shelter, food security, psychosocial support, medical care and economic strengthening support (VSLA).
The OVC program currently provides services to HIV-infected and affected children within Buvuma Island. Currently, there are over 360 children registered in the OVC program.
