Orphans at Nohana Primary School

Here's a graph of the number and type of orphans at Nohana Primary School, broken down by grade and girls and boys. 

Nearly one of every three students at the school are classified as orphans.  Seventy-one (23%) have lost one parent, and 19 (6%) have lost both parents, most due to the AIDS epidemic.

paternal = father died
maternal = mother died
complete = both parents died

All the children in Ketane need our help, but these children especially. We are working hard to give them a better future.
