Gorongoza

Gorongoza Project

Gorongoza

Past: ASEM Gorongoza, was primarily a center for diurnal activities and support services for HIV/AIDS infected children and young adults. By 2008, all children were reintegrated into extended families.


Present: We are currently negotiating a partnership with the government for the re-launch of the Gorongoza program addressing the needs of “young children in conflict with the law” (juvenile rehabilitation center).

There are 3 active programs at Gorongoza:

  • 1. Water Program

    The Gorongoza Water Program provides fresh, clean water to the Gorongoza community via two water wells. These water wells are the lifeblood of the community.


  • 2. Animal Breeding Program

    Breeding of 85 goats – this number is illustrative of our successful animal husbandry efforts. The reproduction of goats has contributed to the community, particularly in the form of goat’s milk which is a nutritious addition to the daily diet of malnourished children.


  • 3. Livestock Development Program

    Is a program were 1 male and 2 female goats are loaned to a family for the period of 1 year to breed, usually, up to 4 baby goats to keep. The families are beneficiaries of the goat milk and the meat.


  • Future: We are currently negotiating a partnership with the government for the re-launch of the Gorongoza program addressing the needs of “young children in conflict with the law” (juvenile rehabilitation center).

  • Any future expansion and improvements are dependent on how much help we can get from people like you for the children of ASEM.
