Every Child is Our Child Program
Guided by our principles, Unitarian Universalists are called to advocate for international human rights; to be a voice for the voiceless by promoting the inherent worth and dignity of all living things. As part of UU-UNO mission, Every Child is Our Child (ECOC) program provides school supplies and healthcare cards to children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDs in Ghana.
The Every Child is Our Child program has partnered with the Queen Mothers Association in the Manya Krobo region of Eastern Ghana to assume responsibility for the care and education of hundreds of AIDS orphans in various communities in the region. According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), as a response to the plight of nearly 600 children in the area orphaned by HIV/AIDS, the 370 members of the Manya Krobo Queen Mothers Association have been responsible for the care and education of 466 of the children.
More than 15.1 million children in sub-Saharan African have been orphaned by AIDS-related illnesses.
