The project is to ensure people get awareness about preventive and curative measures of diseases affecting their community, mostly mothers, infants, and vulnerable children. This is done by seeking timely health care services like attending antenatal care, immunization, sleeping under treated mosquito nets and maintaining proper hygiene and sanitation.

Sensitizing people about HIV scourge in the community where prevalence is about 11% compared to the national prevalence of 7.3%. HIV has mostly affected the youth and young couples. This will include HIV prevention strategies, guidance, and support.

Domestic violence has been on the increase resulting in increased numbers of divorce, child neglect, school dropout of children hence a high number of vulnerable children putting at risk of HIV infection. The project intends to work with local leaders to identify families that are faced with domestic violence by providing mitigation, guidance and counseling services.

The project is aimed at carrying out community diagnosis by doing a community survey to find out health problems and challenges affecting the community.

The orphans and vulnerable children will be organized and connected to institutions and community safe places for them to socialize and take part in group activities as well as a forum for life-skills training. Many of the OVCs, youth, and caregivers will be trained in income-generating activities for job creation.
