Descriptif _ This Development Program aims to improve the well-being of children, especially the most vulnerable, using an approach that is long term (15-20 years), holistic, focused on children, and seeks to enable their families, local communities and partners to address the underlying causes of poverty. These root causes are not just lack of access to the basic necessities of life like water, food or health care, but also include inequities like gender or ethnic discrimination, or abusive practices like exploitation or domestic violence that affect a child’s well-being.

Activités  : * 180 households received ceramic water filters, a cost-effective method for treating water and reducing water-related illness. * Access to clean water increased when we extended a three and a half mile pipeline and constructed an additional safe water source. * To improve basic hygiene and sanitation practices, we trained 51 men and women on handwashing and proper sanitation, and equipped them to teach others. * To increase the sustainability of the water supply, we worked to involve community members and the local government in maintaining water sources. We formed water committees that collect, record, and bank water fees to guarantee future maintenance and expansion. * 1,200 community members gained year-round access to safe water when we constructed a new water tank. * We provided life-skills course books to teachers in 67 primary schools so they can help teach children to make good judgements, communicate effectively, and resolve conflicts amicably. * We supplied 200 math and English books to 67 schools and provided 15 schools with reading materials in the local language. * 54 early childhood development teachers received training and certification through our partnership with the Ministry of Education. * 30 members of school management committees were trained in planning and monitoring the quality of education to ensure that educational programs are sustainable. At a public hearing, they successfully advocated for more funding for early childhood education. * 50 influential community leaders took part in a series of meetings that equipped them to handle cases of child abuse and child rights violations. * 40 child rights clubs were formed to teach children about advocating for education, healthcare, and protection.
