USAID Scholarship Program for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) in Kenya

USAID Scholarship Program for Orphans I and Vulnerable Children (OVC) in Kenya
USAID Kenya is seeking proposals from interested parties to manage a USAID Scholarship Program for OVCs in Kenya to ensure a quality secondary, mid-level college or university education for the academic years 2009-2013. The scholarships will target OVCs, who have lost one or both parents or legal guardians from HIV/AIDS.

Scholarship funds may be used to cover the following fees: cost of practicum, tuition, registration, examinations, research, basic stationery, uniforms, textbooks, boarding costs, school supplies, transportation and student stipends. Scholarship funds may also pay for the student's contribution for school repairs, maintenance, electricity, water, conservancy, medical fee, activity fee, caution money and development projects.

The successful contractor must be able to manage and disburse funds rapidly to schools in most districts of Kenya by January 1, 2009, coordinate with school principals to ensure a quality education is provided and monitor the recipient's progress over the scholarship period. The contractor must be able to provide counseling and mentoring services to scholarship recipients as may be required.

I am 33 year and Finishing my undergraduate studies this year , june, 2010, i have no project but please tell me if i can indentify girls from my home area to benefit from this project, I was born in a slum and i indentify from first hand basis thinks like lack of school fees, hunger, poverty and teen age pregnancy and death from abortions. Its a place which inspires not nor do its people inspires due to drugs, illicit brews and crime, teenage prostitution and lack and girls and boys bare the brunt as girls aged 12 -13 years is already a mother to a child whose was mobbed by people. Its crazy, nowadays there is no message of hope and resilience unlike long time ago, i know how it feels from first hand expereince to stay due to lack of school fees and probably a half grown man promising heaven, i would want to help to start an organization that mitigate the impact of poverty on girls and boys and more so vulnerable children who don't have to repeat the vicious cycle of their parent lifes especially those who have died from mob justice.
