Family Economic Strengthening Programs
Our Family economic strengthening programs are aimed at strengthening poor families so they can provide for and cater to the needs of their children. Poverty is a common experience with family members who do not have steady source of income.
Family Support Program: Hunger drives these children to the streets in a frantic proposition for survival thereby exposing them to grave danger and an uncertain future; the family support program is a welfare program designed to help poor families in order to prevent their children from being forced to life on the street. For a predetermined period of time, we provide food for these families including trainings geared at empowering the families for economic security.
Family Adoption Program: poverty is a common experience with families who live rural, peri-urban and slum communities; deprived by poverty, these vulnerable children are therefore at risk of being abandoned, neglected and abused. In order to keep the children protected, we much support the family through the Family Adoption Program by providing them with the basic needs such as food, shelter, scholastic materials (books, pens, pencils, sanitary pads, mathematical sets, mattress, shocks, shoes, school bag, and cases) for a given period of time. We administer a household vulnerability assessment tool for time to time to enroll households and graduate them from vulnerability.
Scholarship Program: Due to poverty family are not able to give good education to their children, so many of these children vendor chapatti, yellow bananas on the streets in a bid to raise schools fees, unfortunately they end up dropping out of school. We support vulnerable children access equitable education through full scholarships and block grant negotiations.
Village Savings and loans associations: we encourage our caregivers of vulnerable children to form savings groups and we work through these groups to deliver a continuum of services to the household. We support caregivers with income generating activities to help defray other household needs and for family income security.
Youth Skilling Center of Excellence:This center of excellence program is designed to converge women and girls, youth and abused girls to gain skills for self employer-based training (Carpentry and joinery, art and craft, welding, agriculture, passion fruits growing, crop value chain, fishing, tailorings, liquid soap making juice making, among others) selection of the beneficiaries will be based on needs assessment and beneficiary’s interest.
