Summary

SEREP provides a vocational education and training for Orphaned and Vulnerable children who are both infected and affected by HIV / AIDS enabling them to be economically self sufficient in the future. After training they become self employed are are employed. Some move to higher institutions of learning with smiles on their faces. These children are usually crowned with counseling, moral, financial and material support while receiving education. We need to increase the intake and quality.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Figures from UN AIDS report 2008 reported that the prevalence of the HIV infection in Cameroon was as high as 15%, this is the second highest value in the world. Many people living with HIV face not only health issues but may also struggle to make ends meet economically. The disease also leaves many orphaned and vulnerable children. SEREP gives OVCs in Kumbo the opportunity to go to school and get an education allowing them to become economically independent. There are too many OVCs to support.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project provides the school fees and material items required to educate an orphan child. It offers the child a commercial and vocational education level to write national vocational qualification or GCE O level improving their employability. It allows the child to concentrate 100% on school without financial and material worries. Above all, restores hope for the future on orphaned and vulnerable children.

Potential Long Term Impact

SEREP will educate 50 extra OVCs offering economic stability to them and their extended families or Care givers. It keeps them off the streets and gives the pupils a support network and a future which has been taken away from them by HIV/AIDS or other situations that might have caused them to become vulnerable. Kumbo community can prosper if more is done in this regard.
