The role of the Civil Society like THE CAREWELL SOCIETY and Faith-Based Organizations in this matter has now become of utmost cardinal value. THE CAREWELL SOCIETY has over the last few years been rolling out several programmes in the larger Kisii District of Western Kenya. The focus of THE CAREWELL SOCIETY has been in addressing the collective predicament of the Aged, the Widowed Women and the Children who, today, are conveniently referred to as the “Orphans and Vulnerable Children” (OVC).
Owing to the foregoing, in the last 3 years, THE CAREWELL SOCIETY has also deliberately chosen to address the impacts of illicit drug-abuse and the HIV/Aids scourge among Kenya’s Children, the Orphaned population and the Early Youth. These concerns need to be addressed topically and within an educated parameter with a view to containing the brewing devastations before they manifest fully in the larger society.
