Projects

Carpentry Vocational Training

Education is crucial for ‘Solidarity with Orphans‘. Unfortunately, graduating from a school does not necessarily ensure a job in a company. Due to high levels of unemployment, we created facilities of vocational training in order to complement our educational efforts and ensure more independence for the orphans. The carpentry project was initiated in September 2003 for male orphans, representing a professional training with an officially approved degree. It aims at financially sustaining itself within the next few years by selling products which are being fabricated by the boys.

Computer Center

In accordance with our demand to shape development aid in a sustainable manner, we have established our Computer Learning Center in cooperation with the Rotary Club.  The Computer Learning Center will give children in the Carpentry and Tailoring Education Projects, as well as our supported children who attend Secondary School, the possibility of a future-oriented education.

Memory Book

Who am I? Where do I belong? HIV/ AIDS orphans have to ask themselves all these questions only too often. When a family, due to the death of the parents breaks down, Memory Books can assist children to hold on to their identity. It restores some sort of ‚ideal world‘ of which they have been torn. It further gives them the confidence that they once had a family which loved and cared for them. It further gives them some form of home and may at times heal deep wounds. Very often, the Memory Book becomes the most precious item of the children which they protect like their own life.

Scholarships

‘Solidarity with Orphans‘ regards education as the greatest potential for fighting poverty. Knowledge enables young boys and girls to take on responsibility for both themselves and others. For this reason, starting in 1991, we have been supporting orphans and half-orphans by financing their school fees. In 20011/12 we have financed 349 children the attendance of a primary or secondary school.

Tailoring Vocational Training

Education is crucial for ‘Solidarity with Orphans‘. Unfortunately, graduating from a school does not necessarily ensure a job in a company. Due to high levels of unemployment, we created facilities of vocational training in order to complement our educational efforts and ensure more independence for the orphans. The project has been initiated in 2000 and is situated in Bukoba, the biggest city of the region. It aims at financially sustaining itself within the next few years by selling products which are being fabricated by the girls.
