Donate a House for a Granny.
Several of our target beneficiaries especially the grannies reside in semi-permanent and grass-thatched houses which are weak, with un-cemented floors, poorly ventilated and crowded rooms which double as kitchens and sometimes shared with animals.
On average, a room is shared by three household members. Considering that most houses of older persons are small, it can be observed that they are crowded. In addition, a significant percentage of older persons and OVC households lack latrines, bathing shelter, use living houses as kitchens.You can donate a house, house donation is a common sense solution that positively impacts the economic and environmental bottom line and has provided hope to several grannies.
Donate play materials for children
Vulnerable children also need to play. It is special for children. Not only is it fun, but it is also important for healthy development. It is their “work” and their way of learning about the world. It erodes the sense of discrimination and brings joy and self esteem.
Through play, children try out new skills, explore their imagination and creativity, and develop relationships with other people in their lives. Play can be an especially powerful bonding time for you, as a parent or caregiver. Donate to the vulnerable; they also need a joyful life.
Donate Trees for Education
Donate trees to support education and income generation in the OVC households. PEFO designed a tree-for-education/pension and environmental conservation initiative (TEPECI) with the aim of creating education and old age insurance using locally available resources. The trees are planted by OVC and their caretakers supervised by PEFO, on respective beneficiary plots of land and, are tended by OVC and caretakers
With the trees for pension, PEFO promotes slow growing Mvule and Musizi indigenous species with a very long life span such that they can only be available for timber use during the old age for the participating youths and can only be used as a source of pension during the old age.
Both tree species can be inter-cropped in crop garden with minimal effect on crops. The rational is that you plant trees to reduce financial vulnerability during the old age since Africa still lacks well developed pension mechanisms to support their elderly persons.
