More than 14 million children under 15 in Africa have lost one or both parents to AIDS. The scope of this human tragedy is overwhelming. What can one person, or one congregation, do? Plenty! We, Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO) members, have begun by making these children our priority. As part of UU-UNO mission, Every Child is Our Child Program focuses on children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS and works toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of universal primary education, fighting HIV/AIDS, reducing hunger and poverty, and promoting gender equality. This effort is guided by our partnership with the Queen Mothers Association in the Manya Krobo region of Eastern Ghana. Because of your support, we are able to fund health insurance and school supplies for 100 children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS in Manya Krobo, Ghana.
How your donation will help a child: US$120 / CAN$135 supports one child’s education for 1 year. US$1200 / CAN$1350 supports one child's education for 10 years. All contributions are Tax Deductible. Donate now.
