EpiscoCare addresses the needs of the most vulnerable families, often headed by widows and marginalized women.
Unemployment and rates of child labour reflect both poor education systems and desperate financial situations. Young people struggle to start their adult life with poor employment prospects and little assistance available from their impoverished parents. Our family support programme offers resources for people at every stage of life to strengthen households to meet challenges. We do this through:
- Assisting young adults with the expenses of setting up a new household when they get married.
- Supplying the poorest families with food, households, furniture or improvement of houses.
- Subsidizing housing renovations that promote safety and sanitation.
- Supporting the health and life of the communities’ poorest families.
