VOI PROJECT ORPHAN PROGRAMME  REPORT 2011

INTRODUCTION

“And whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that
from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance” Colossians 3:23-24.

For couple of years the project have been assisting about 30 orphans and their families in
their own environment and this year we have increased 14 new orphans and that
means the project is now assisting 40 orphans and their families. The main goal
of voi project is to strengthen orphans identity through secure their basic and
special needs and support them with education to give them a safe and hopeful
future. Thanks to our friends, well wishers, sponsors, schools and companies
from Ulricehamn, Sweden for the financial support which enables us to assist
these beautiful children.

School Uniforms

In January 2011, all the children were given school uniforms and those who were not yet in
school, were bought home clothes. The project has been doing this exercise
every year.

Home Based Care Seminar

In April 2011, we had a seminar for the Home based cares for 4 days and it was about the
duties and responsibilities of a home based care, we also invited some
guardians to the seminar and Elizabeth Jillo was our facilitator.

Food and Nutrition

The project has been giving monthly food to orphans who are in hard situations and also
give nutritious porridge flour monthly to HIV+ orphans and those who are under
ten. The results have been good, they are healthy. The project also caters for
medical and other needs of the orphans.

Relief Food

This year our country was faced with drought and starvation, people and animals died
because of hunger but voi project was able to give relief food to all orphans
in April and in august also gave all orphans, home based cares and Bogesunds
house workers.

Guardian Meetings

We were able to bring guardians in their congregational area together and that enhanced
unity and co-operation among guardians thus improve their living standards
through projects e.g kisimenyi they have a poultry project.

Challenges

The following are challenges we faced while undergoing our daily activities:-

  1. Natural calamites e.g drought that we did not plan or
    budgeted for occurred.
  2. Increase in food prices and school fees due to global
    economic crisis.
  3. Lack of co-operation among some of the guardians.

2011 has been a good year despite challenges we faced but we really thank our Almighty
father for giving us strength in doing his mission. We also thank our well
wishers, sponsors, friends donors, schools, home based cares and voi family for
making it possible.

May God bless you all and we wish everyone a happy merry Christmas and a prosperous new
year of 2012.

Yours in service
