This project will build 3 Child Day Care Centers to benefit 90-100 young children age 2-5 in Yolanda hit areas in the Phil. A Day Care Center is a pre-school barangay-based facility that ensures total development and protection of children through mental and intellectual simulation exercises, supervised recreation, games, and supplemental feeding with balance nutritious food 5 days a week in six months period.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Thousands of young children in Yolanda hit communities have been deprived of the basic physical and mental development support that a Day Care Center have been providing. If a Day Care Center in the barangay is present and functional, in the midst of hardships brought by the typhoon, the young children in the community can continue to progress their mental, psychological, and physical development through regular classroom activities, play with other children, and be able to eat nutritious foods.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will provide the Day Care Facility where kids will enjoy the regular activities in the center such as supplemental feeding 5 days a week, practicing mental abilities through learning exercises by a Day Care Worker, and be able to interact and play with fellow kids. This project will help the poor parents who are currently experiencing economic difficulties in providing the vital attention for their young children.
Potential Long Term Impact
Young children are always at risk because they don't have the capacity and ability to survive by their own means during disasters. They always need the vital support for them to be able to survive. The long term impact of this project is that the young children that are benefited by this project will be able to stay and feel the normal lives that they had before the typhoon hit their communities that will lead them to a better future that they dreamed of.
