Summary

This project will provide 30 workers at 10 orphanages in Togo with training in holistic care, child development, abuse, common mental illnesses, basic hygienic care and first aid, and it will connect them to the existing mental health network and assist them in formalizing their centers. Together, these workers care for about 1,500 children who will benefit from improved care and services.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are many untrained caregivers offering voluntary services to orphans and vulnerable children out of love and commitment. Most of these voluntary humanitarian workers are yet to get official recognition for their homes/centers. As a result, they do not have access to some helpful training workshops organized by international NGOs, because only those officially known by the administrative authorities are usually considered.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our partner, Graceland Christian Network, will provide training for 30 caregivers and staff of 10 orphanages in and around the capital city, Lome. Follow-up includes two annual visits to each of the centers for a minimum of two years to ensure they are passing on the knowledge acquired and making use of the materials. During this time, we will connect them to government departments in charge of social services, education, etc., for the necessary permits and access to resources.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will improve care for 1,500 orphans and vulnerable children. The training will give workers knowledge in how to properly care for the children who have experienced trauma and grief in their young lives, and this will surely affect these children positively. Secondly the networking will get these orphanages connected to the rightful authorities and NGOs to improve the welfare of the children.
