Every success project comes with it’s challenges and obstacles to overcome. United with various partners such as: CAFO Reunification For A Brighter Tomorrow, British Counsel, Civil Society Support Programme, USAID, Project Hope, Save the Children and many more. We are able to improve the quality health and wellbeing of women, orphans, children, while empowering families with education and intensive training courses. 

I continue to work with local government to improve government structures’ capacity to facilitate high-quality services, ensure availability of high-quality services to “hard-to-reach” OVC’s, build parents and caregivers’ capacity to access services. We train and provide course such as our: Empower and Synovio training courses, CVC services through resource mobilization, certified graduation certificated for women/mothers, CRP training and CEF training.
