The Dream Again Youth (DAY) Program is special for young men and women that have not been able to access any form of education. Becoming adolescent commercial sex workers seems “the only way out” from abject poverty for many vulnerable young girls living in poor and rural communities. This is because many are already orphaned; have limited or no resources; have no education and lack supportive social networks. It is common for these adolescent girls to engage in commercial sex in the nearby trading center simply for survival.
This program aims at training young adults so that they are equipped to become future business leaders; creating employment opportunities for young adults and for members of the extended community; generating additional funding that sustains some of AIM’s activities, allowing us to provide for more orphaned children and vulnerable youth and women in our care; and sustainability.
