RIVCHO in collaboration with Members of chevron Peer Health Educators on the 18th of December organized a get-together party for 80 Orphans and Vulnerable children. The Event which took place at RIVCHO conference hall Enerhen was attended by RIVCHO staff, CHEVRON PHE staffs and OVCs (Orphans and Vulnerable Children).
The Chevron Peer Health Educators are a group of staffers of oil giant CHEVRON Nigeria Ltd who are passionate about giving back to society by assisting orphans & Vulnerable Children. These persons voluntarily contribute funds from their earnings for this purpose. Their TOTAL contributed amount was matched naira for naira by their employer. RIVCHO is one of the 8 NGOs selected to implement this OVCs project.
RIVCHO has been implementing this project since 2012 and has so far provided educational support for 154 primary school OVCs and 187 Secondary School OVCs.
The programme contained singing, physical education exercises, games, health talk and career talk. The Children that participated all got presents; each child was given toys, beverages, food items and cake. The kids were all excited because of the Love that was showered on them by RIVCHO and the Company’s PHE staffs.
RIVCHO looks forward to continue partnership with them in caring for these children affected & impacted by the HIV scourge.
