With the successful completion of the first year of the Orphans Foundation Fund / CORDAID Street Children Project we have set out with the new recruitment for this year. After the long and careful process of meeting with the children on the streets and doing interviews, we have narrowed down those who are interested in participating in the life changing program. Today we met with a large group to discuss the first stage of moving into the dormitories at Chiswea this coming week. The street children are hopeful and eager to begin the work of transforming their lives into mature responsible adults. The talk has reached the streets that  Orphans Foundation Fund / CORDAID have a program, that with effort, training, and hard work leads to a future of hope.
