“Caring For Children Affected by Ebola”

February 2017

 

Achievements

  • THINK Safe Home provided services to 6 survivors of sexual violence and Trafficking and the THINK Juvenile Transit Center provided shelter and services to 10 children that came in contact or conflict with the law in January 2017.

 

  • Clinical management and treatment provided for 32 survivors (24 being children), at the two One Stop Centers for Sexual Violence supervised by THINK

 

Success Story

In 2015, a visually impaired young lady was introduced to THINK a person with a disability that needed help to remain in one of the universities in Liberia studying Mass Communications.

THINK commenced paying her tuitions from funds received from donors interested in helping girls and young women enroll and remain in school. This young lady was one of the recipients of a laptop computer from the Global Neighborhood Fund that a special software was installed on to facilitate her access to materials since blind students in Liberia have no brail school materials. They have to punch their school lessons onto their brail pads as they listen to their teachers in their classes.

 

Our beneficiary graduated from university with a Bachelor of Arts degree on January 31, 2017. We thank our donors from Globalgiving that have continually given resources to THINK that makes the dreams and aspirations of adolescent girls, young women and other children go to school.

 

Thank you!

“Caring For Children Affected by Ebola”

January 2017

Achievements

After participating in a short term four-month training project developed and funded by UN/Government of Liberia Joint Program on Adolescent Girls,

  • 450 adolescent girls from 6 communities (Bensonville 100, Careysburg 100, Totoquellie 100, Soul Clinic 50, Gaza 50 and Wroh 50), will be graduating on separate days between February 12 – 16, 2017.

The project helped girls to know their rights, participate in basic literacy, acquire business skills, life skills, learn about HIV/AIDS, Sexual and Gender Based Violence prevention and response and interact with each other using sports, music and drama.

  • THINK has been able to continue providing services to vulnerable children that come in contact or conflict with the law in minor offences. We were also able provide shelter and protection for three cases of internationally trafficked young women and their children (one from Malaysia, and two from Ivory Coast). 
  • THINK Safe Home provided services to 10 survivors of sexual violence and Trafficking and the THINK Juvenile Transit Center provided shelter and services to 15 children that came in contact or conflict with the law from December 1, 2016 until January 18, 2017.
  • Clinical management and treatment provided for 36 survivors (28 being children), at the two One Stop Centers for Sexual Violence supervised by THINK

Success Story

In 2012, a 9 years old Fistula survivor was referred to THINK for Psychosocial care and support. She had received reconstructive surgery at the Phebe Hospital in Bong County (central Liberia), and her parents did not want to take her back into their home or in their community.

When we received the information, we started looking for a Foster family for the girl and after a month in the THINK safe home, she was placed with her new family. THINK has provided school assistance for her and she is now in the sixth grade and doing well in school, at home and in the community. Her biological parents came only one time to meet the Foster family.

This little girls and many others like her, are appreciative of donors and partners of UNFPA for putting a smile on their faces again as they learn to become productive citizens of Liberia.
