Major Challenges / Constraints
The program continues to bring great benefits to communities. There has been an increase in the number of applicants in 2010 (about 75), the locations covered (12 villages), number of scholarships awarded (25) and the sheer will of the community to actively participate in the program, giving advice and participating in decision-making.
The meeting of parents and guardians, which took place in June 2010, reflected much of the will and interest to participate more actively in the program. Many parents were grateful for the opportunity and wanted to know what they could do to improve the program, to support the social workers in their work.
All questions raised by the parents are evidence of community involvement, interest and recognition for the work of the LWF (success of the program). Currently, the concerns are:
• What future for the grant holders have completed basic education (10th grade)?
• The fate of the daughters, if continue to have support for their training or ends here?
• After 10th grade, will the girls enter the work/professional environment?
The 2010 scholarships cover most of the localities of the district, and for the first time, in sampling the scholars, the program found that it is inadvertently helping a sub-set of the most marginalized rural girls of Magude: Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC's). According to an analysis of District Directorate of Education of Magude, 90% of girls in 2010 class are orphaned by a parent and live in conditions of extreme poverty.
It is true that the lack of piped water in the center has been a great challenge but the foundation has been negotiating ways to solve the problem, which undoubtedly undergo high monetary costs. Another major problem was the water crisis (high costs) which, like any scarce resource leads to conflict, was diagnosed some evidence of conflict within the center, regardless of if it was properly managed.
In short, More School for Me is in its third year of implementation. Some challenges remain, as above mentioned, but the most satisfying part is seeing the involvement and development of rural girls and the growing participation of the communities in supporting the future and expansion of this project.
Today they can read, write in two languages (in addition to Portuguese, learning English and French), are communicative, engage in extra-curricular activities (using computers, cameras, camcorders, cooking, sewing, pottery, agriculture and issues related to the tragedy of HIV/AIDS that many of them are indirect victims), and Help them make decisions concerning their future (including continued education in the future of the program).
