They hunt and eat roots for survival. The children were starving and had no access to food, education or health care.
EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL SUPPORT PROGRAMME
This programme is ongoing in that 3000 children of widows and poor. 1000 children with HIV/AIDS or disabled or children of PLWHA parents. In the burden of life and so many exploitation on widows/destitute women life with children exist after their husband left. So the children education is under risk due to poverty and needs of the children’s earning.
Similarly the children of HIV/AIDS parents are under risk and problems. In other cases, few of them (children) are with PLWHA and studying with poverty and needs of health support.
So, ROSI FOUNDATION is supporting the widows/destitute children and PLWHA’s children for their education materials and other educational needs. Further children with HIV/AIDS are supported for education materials, health and nutrias, cloth, etc.
