teenage abortions, malaria, tuberculosis and maternal mortality.
Other activities involved campaign against early sexual
relationships, mobilizing support for motherless and or fatherless
children, promoting the economic well-being of indigent people
and implementing other programs that bring hope to the
hopeless, expand opportunities and enrich individuals' lives.

poverty reduction projects that led to more than 1000 indigent
people receiving micro loans with minimal bottlenecks.
