Changing Lenses, Changing Lives has several core programs designed to change the lives of vulnerable children and AIDS orphans. All of our programs are intended to keep vulnerable children healthy, attending school, and studying.
Meru has a large group of street children living in the city dump. Some of these children, mostly boys, have been orphaned and have nowhere else to go. Others have been forced to leave their homes due to substance abuse, domestic violence, poverty or other reasons. A variety of programs are in place to help these children rise above their situations.
