1. Monthly Capacity Building Workshops with

 

a. Workshops with HIV+ infected parents

 

Objective: To facilitate the process for creating Mutual Support System (MSS) among the HIV+ parents.

 

Process: Open collective sharing of problems faced by each of the participants resulting into broad classification of their concerns / constraints. 

  • Fight against social stigma and psychology of social exclusion
  • Need for and relevance of Group identity and collective action.
  • Need for and relevance of information dissemination on institutions providing services to AIDS victims.
  • Need for and relevance of being proactive in campaign against AIDS.
  • Need for and relevance of social inclusion.

In present scenario most of the people especially the people who are not educated are not considering AIDS as a medical problem, rather they take it as a social problem due to lack of knowledge and awareness. People living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) are facing social stigma and exclusion in the society. There is no particular identified group because they have come from different parts of Delhi. For collective action we are facilitating them in order to make a MSS. MSS will help them to play an active role in campaign against HIV/AIDS, it will lead to their social inclusion.

Objective: To help HIV affected children grow in an inclusive environment – in family, in schools, in communities, in peer groups.

 

Process: Open collective sharing with children to comprehend different aspects of their problems.

  • Counseling to enable such children overcome their traumas;
  • Instances of exclusion in family, school, community and peer groups;  
  • Development of right attitude to face the real world;
  • Motivation for academic excellence and good health.

We are providing moral education to HIV affected children through workshops to overcome their trauma using various methods and techniques like storytelling, art therapy and craftwork. As we are forming the group of parents, similarly our aim is to make the children feel secure in their own small group. We are encouraging these children for developing confidence, right attitude and importance of education.

2. Home Visits: 

Objective / s of quarterly home visits:

i)              To ascertain the degree of involvement of parents in catering to nutrition and education needs of non infected children

ii)             To ascertain the physical and financial status of parents.

iii)            To ascertain / gauge about the real pattern of fund-flow.

 

To find out the degree of involvement and contribution of parents in needs of children for their education and nutrition. Home visits are also helpful to know the health and financial status of the parents and we also can monitor the flow of fund. 

The home visits revealed that children are really benefiting from the grant. Not even a single instance was brought to light where we felt that the money was not being spent on the beneficiaries. The children are regularly going to schools and are getting tuitions as well as good nutrition. We are really satisfied with the home visit reports.
