50% of AIDS orphans are cared for by grandparents
In sub-Saharan Africa alone, over 11 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDs. Around the world, half of AIDs orphans are cared for by their grandparents.
It's common for people to move from the countryside to the city or abroad, in order to find work - and it's not always possible to take their children along with them.This has meant that extended family and some cases grandparents alone shoulder the largest responsibility of care of the children left behind. 100 million older people live on less than 60p. In developing countries, only 1 in 4 people have access to a social pension. That means that they must work, often this means returning to farm and till land by hand or doing poorly paid and unsafe work.
Triumph Africa currently supports grandparents who are the main guardian of double parent orphans in Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone by short term sponsoring of school fee and levy payments*. For the long term we assist grandparents through the application process of obtaining and securing longterm schollarships. We also provide the children enrolled onto our programmes with school supplies and basic healthcare insurance* .
