grandparents care for orphans.

Well, we have take a bit (that’s an understatement) of a hiatus on this website. As Women of Kireka joined forces with Project Diaspora, we used the latter as a platform for all news, videos and photos. However, as the project continues to take shape, we have decided to continue using this website to share information with the public on how our work is unfolding.

With this in mind, here are a few pictures from an on-going rural development project being run by NUWECHI in Kitgum.

One of these projects helps grandmothers, who are looking after orphans whose parents died of HIV/AIDS, learn more about the virus. The grandmothers are taught parenting skills in nutrition, hygiene, and home based care. They are also encouraged to take the orphans for testing, as many are not aware of their status.
