Programs

Current programs ( 1 ) Promote Child Rights Awareness -Uganda Advocate and promotion of Child Rights through Community/family sensitizations, mobilizations, trainings, meetings on child rights and responsibilities, child neglect, abuse, exploitation and torture. click www.globalgiving.org/projects/human-rights/updates ( 2 ) Orphans & Vulnerable Children ( OVCs) Empowerment Through Education Together with volunteers and interns from the Netherlands, Globalgiving Foundation of Washington DC, and local Volunteer, we are supporting Education to the needy, HIV/AIDS orphans, vulnerable, marginalized children and even to those from the poorest homes whose homes, who are deprived off their rights of accessing basic quality Education. The OVCs identified are accessing basic Education at Benamos School of OVCs Poverty rate among homes of guardians of these orphans range from 27% to 62% in Naigobya Village, Bukooma Subcounty Luuka, Iganga district which is one of the highest in Uganda. Income level of these guardians is less than one ( 1 ) US Dollar a day. It said more than 100 poor people live per square kilometer in this area. Past Projects: ( Send A Cow Project ) Bukooma 2004 In the past, we have trained and distributed In-calf Friesian Dairy cows to specifically the widows of HIV/AIDS with intensions of supporting the Orphans and vulnerable children in schools through milk sales and these are the children who are being taught by the volunteers. But found out that sensitization, mobilization, training on issues of HIV/AIDS to create awareness is important integral part in this community hence to write this project which will be implemented together with you. Empowerment HIV/AIDS affected and infected persons We have trained some members in modern crop production while a few have also been sensitized on issues of HIV/AIDS but majority of the community members still need to access services on HIV/AIDS since the disease has increased to be spreading a lot more among the married couples . This has not been possible hence to believe that our joint partnership in this proposed project will help a lot to fill the gap and demands for services on HIV/AIDS as well as economically empowering the affected and infected. TRAININGS Generally, trainings are divided into three parts. 1 . Preparation Preparation in training is very important. It involves a variety of activities such as site visiting, assessment of the area / learners, preparing of the notes/ hand outs, preparing of the leaning materials among others. This activity takes 2-3 days depending on the training. 2. Actual training. This is the engagement of the learners and the trainer. It involves all that it takes in learning. Our trainings are employing both participatory and experiential learning approaches where all participants are learners and at the same time they are trainers. This enhances the learning process. 3. Report writing: The writing of reports is another sector of the training which gives an account of what transpired in the training. 4. Monitoring and evaluation: This is another very important aspect because we need to know how farmers are implementing what they have been trained in. This follow up depends on what the training was all about. It may require the trainer to go the member's garden so that the member is guided practically for the case of crop and animal production.
