Prioritizing Vulnerable Groups in HAGI’s Activities: Orphans and Widows

(HAGI) recognizes the unique challenges faced by vulnerable groups, particularly orphans and women who have lost their husbands, in conflict-affected communities.

Why Orphans and Widows are Prioritized:

Specific Needs: Orphans require specialized care and education, while widows face additional challenges of managing households and livelihoods alone.

Empowerment Potential: Investing in orphans and widows can create a ripple effect, fostering self-reliance and contributing to the overall well-being of the community.

Psycho-social support: Helping orphans and widows cope with the trauma and loss they have experienced.

Providing access to education and vocational training for orphans and widows. Empowering widows to start their own businesses and generate income.

Orphans and widows are actively involved in all stages of HAGI’s activities, from needs assessment and planning to implementation and evaluation.

HAGI as local organizations work closely with internation partner and community leaders to ensure that the needs of orphans and widows are met in a culturally sensitive and sustainable manner.

Examples of HAGI’s Actions:
