Help Break the Cycle of Poverty
There are nearly 150 million children in Africa today that live in extreme poverty. Each year, almost 20% of children die before they turn 5 years old. These are just a few of the astonishing numbers that outline this impoverished region. Other key problems of this region include child trafficking, HIV/AIDS, and poor governance providing inadequate services to the public.
At CARITAS For Children, we have dedicated programs in Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria that provide impoverished children with basic education, enriched spirituality, better health and hope for the future.
