THE NEED
According to National AIDS Control Committee, Central Technical Group (2010) in the publication titled "The Impact of HIV/AIDS in Cameroon through 2020", the number of children orphaned by AIDS, Tb, and Malaria -- children under age 18 who have lost one or both parents to AIDS -- has increased dramatically, rising from 13,000 orphans in 1995 to 304,000 in 2010. By 2020, this number is projected to rise to 350,000. Children orphaned by AIDS represent about 25% of Cameroon's total 1,200,000 orphans in 2010. Providing appropriate support and care for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) poses challenges for both families and society. Many OVC live outside of family support, and many OVC are marginalized, stigmatized, isolated, and discriminated against. Consequently, they are exposed to harmful conditions such as lack of schooling, low literacy, begging, pedophilia, juvenile delinquency, prostitution, violence, and the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmissible infections (STIs).

There is need for our collaborative support to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and people with disabilities to attend School. Minority Health Promotion Initiative, Inc., (MHPI) NGO is focused on providing support to orphanages and awarding Scholarships to Orphans and People with disabilities to attend school at all levels-- Primary, Secondary, Technical, Professional, and Institutions of Higher Education (IHE). Your donation will provide education to this underprivileged and underserved segment of society. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. MHPI is determined to transform lives, educate, empower and engage youths so as to contribute positively to national economic productivity. You could be sponsoring a future Scientist, Doctor, Lawyer, Entrepreneur, Administrator, Representative, Senator or President. The goal of MHPI is to raise at least $100,000.00 to start awarding Scholarships as well as serving as a thousand points of light to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and People with disabilities. Just imagine that $1000.00 will sponsor an orphan through a nursing program or Technical School or Secondary School or University for one year. All donations are tax deductible in the USA.
