Bridges of Hope and Empowerment (BOHEI)
Education and Training
Education promotes equality and lifts people out of poverty. It teaches children how to become good citizens. Education is not just for a privileged few, it is for everyone.
The lack of formal education is due to the lack of funds by parents and extreme poverty levels. Also, many children are being left as orphans due to the death of their parents by HIV/AIDS and lack of necessary resources to survive. Major problems include the following: Hunger, lack of school fees, books, uniforms, and sanitary towels for girls. The effects are immense and result in early marriages, drug abuse, other addictions, and the inability of individuals and families to become self-sustainable. Bridges of Hope and Empowerment International, Inc. desires to change this situation by providing basic education to vulnerable children, scholarships, school uniforms, school shoes, school stationery, sanitary and napkins for girls, and vocational training. These resources and programs will promote literacy, positive self-esteem, opportunities for employment, and self-sustainability.
