STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Due to the increasing number of unattended orphans or vulnerable children in the community characterized by poverty and HIV/AIDS victims, it is against the above statement that the project came up with an idea to reduce the increasing percentage of street beggars and law breakers.
Besides, many parents die without making any will that will protect or safe –guard their children so the in-laws that.
It is however, against that background that ‘’KAZIRA PROJECT” conceived the idea of establishing a centre for such children.

The community came-up with these objectives below:
1. To provide the children with income generating skills for sustaining them selves where needed.
2. Offer formal education leading to literacy
3. To guide and counsel children with HIV/AIDS and to help them where needed.
4. To sensitize the community and guardians about children’s rights.
5. To sensitize children and the community on HIV/AIDS, primary health care and personal hygiene.
Nevertheless, there is a management committee to gear the affairs of the school following the financial procedures on the ground.
STRATEGIES
1. Mobilize resources with the community for the project.
2. Organizing workshops and sensitize guardians, religious leaders about children’s rights.
3. To instill in the orphans and vulnerable/HIV/AIDS children income generating skills for sustaining them selves for better future.
4. Provide formal education to all on-going school children.

ACHIEVEMENTS
• We have taken children for blood test and those who have HIV/AIDS are on ARVS.
• Children are able to read and write.
• Through guidance and counseling, many guardians have retreated and realized that these children also have rights to education, shelter, medical care and all basic needs.
• Few vocational skills have been achieved.
