The risks orphaned children have to endure on a daily basis are numerous-shortage of food, safe drinking water, lack of sanitation and appropriate school clothes amongst others. They also have to trek miles to school and when they get there, the learning environment is very hostile to them.
How do they cope through it all? They live for each day and have hope that things will get better. By giving 100% scholarships to orphaned children, Benjamin Kalu foundation has given hope to many children. They now have a purpose in life and a chance to be self-sufficient. In addition to scholarships, each orphanage will have a school unit integrated with it.
