Rotary District 1860 in Rarieda/Kenya
The Rotary District 1860 help project in Rarieda, Kenya, is one of the first Future Vision projects and an excellent example of modern development cooperation and the efficiency of global grant projects.
The Rarieda district at Lake Victoria in Western Kenya is one of the poorest regions in the country. The people living there are in desperate need for help. 70 percent of the population have to make their living with less than one dollar per day and live far below the poverty line. Rarieda's HIV and malaria rates are the highest in the country. Approximately a quarter of the population is HIV-infected. 35 percent of children and teenagers are orphans.
The Lindgren House in Bonn
If the life of babies, children and teenagers is in danger, action must be taken at once. The Lindgren House is a place where help is always at hand. If authorities decide that children have to get out of their families to be saved from harm, the Lindgren House can accommodate them at once. There is enough room for six children between the age of three and eight. With a big garden, rooms for romping about and being creative and many other opportunities for play and activities, the house especially suits the needs of small children.godesheim.de
