Thank you: we have started building safe homes

Centre Marembo rehabilitation center, since it’s creation, has been working hard to transform the lives of children and homeless children, young girls who were victims of rape and other types of violence in the home and on the street.

Get reminded of our five key pillars which are Health and wellbeing, Education, Empowerment, Access to Justice and Reintegration.

Within this period, we have been investing in the construction of safe homes to provide our beneficiaries with improved and conducive living conditions. However, our capability with some funds from GlobalGiving enabled us to start but we still struggling with the finishing. Thus we need more support and engagement so that our children can relocate as soon as possible.

Reintegration

Apart from construction of safe homes, we have reintegrated the children. As rehabilitation center where homeless and young girls victims of abuse come for rehabilitation, at the end of the time they are reintegrated with some life skills and education whether academic or vocational trainings to enable them live financially independent and create their own source of income.

The reintegration consisted of family tracing and find fostering families where children without parents and biological family can be adopted and live in the family instead of eternally live in the rehabilitation centers. They are also provided with reintegration kits.

Nineteen girls were reintegrated. Among them, three are teen mothers and have been also helped to start new life after rehabilitation with their respective babies.

As conclusion, we are grateful to all those who contributed to our work of helping vulnerable girls, homeless girls and teen mothers and teen pregnant gilrs victims of abuse. In fact, your contributions were helpful, and we hope to collaboratively keep on working hard to help those in need especially young girls.

AGRIBUSINESS TRAINING FOR EFFECTIVE REINTEGRATION

AGRICULTURE AND LIVESTOCK TRAINING

As we are preparing for reintegration, we have been training the teen mothers accommodated at the center as part of preparation for their effective reintegration. We could work on the various field related to our routine activities but livestock practical training enhanced.

The teen Centre Marembo teen mothers were enrolled in our training program for agriculture and livestock activities. The participants in this training ended up with evaluation to ensure that what they learned will enhance their skills and ability to perform those activities on themselves without any guidance after they will have been back in their respective community.

We learned from the training that our beneficiaries especially those who have babies and not yet ready for academic school can do better in terms of taking care and increase productivity of our poultry livestock and farming and we want to keep this momentum to help these teen mothers own their cattle and poultry livestock to financially live independent.

The training was done with direct coordination of Centre Marembo and technicians in Agriculture and livestock processing who also conducted assessment to evaluate the participant’s level of understanding at the end of the trainings. The training was fruitful as we now have children who are able to care of chicken, cow and farming activities on their own without guidance.

NUTRITION TRAINING

We remain convinced that improving nutritional health of our beneficiaries is crucial for effective rehabilitation. The teen mothers trained on diet food to fight malnutrition and chronic stunting. More effort invested in enhancing the nutritional status of new brought teen mothers and pregnant teenagers. This group of people is targetted for malnutrition if not well looked after. In fact, we noted improvement since they arrived in the centre.

CONCLUSION

We appreciate the partnership with GlobalGiving. Our works would not be possible without people like you to collaboratively help vulnerable and young girls in need. We certainly thank you for all you have been doing with Centre Marembo since a little but crucial period and we commit ourselves to properly use the funds in executing our mission.

In the last three months, Centre Marembo has moved forward in terms of improving welfare towards our beneficiaries. Through our aim of transforming the lives of children and young girls who are the victims of rape and other types of violence in the home and on the street, we marked an advancing step in providing better and comfortable services through the provisions of quality education among others.

With the funds we received, we could realize our routine activities all related to our mission of transforming the lives of the children and teen mothers under rehabilitation purpose.

In the last three months, Centre Marembo has moved forward in terms of improving welfare towards our beneficiaries especially on the basis of education. We could enrol 8 new children brought at the center for rehabilitation after spending most of their time in the street life.

We were thrilled to realize that noticeable changes can be seen in terms of physical growth and welfare improvement brought in by enriched education system with the permanent teacher hired to follow up our children after schools and during the weekends and holidays.

However more effort has been invested in education, we recall you our activities are not only limited to education to

The work of Centre Marembo does not only consist of meeting their physiological needs but is also extended to transformative approaches and tips, give back the dignity and human value that they had lost, building their resilience and self-esteem, to shape their future through education and vocational training.

Centre Marembo thanks all donors who supported its activities and GlobalGiving for this opportunity to collect funds through such an efficacious fundraising platform. We hope to collaboratively keep on supporting vulnerable children by preparing their bright future.
