Since the needs of each family and child are unique and varied, we reserve some of our funding for general outreach. We have built houses and created income generation projects for those living in poverty. We have also helped young people get into drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Emergency medical care is often a need of the community as well, and our general outreach program helps us provide money for these health care emergencies.
Anyone who has followed the work of The Baobab Home over the years remembers some of our most successful outreach clients, the "Street Boys." In 2005, we got them started in secondary school. Today, Benedictor is a nurse and Emmanuel received his diploma in counseling. William is a social worker and Yasini is the Purchasing and Finance Manager at Baobab. They are all fine young men with promising futures and we are so proud of what they are accomplishing.
