A personalized approach at the FSP / Funding Update

Summer Arts Camp 2014

July 15 is GlobalGiving’s Bonus Match Day . We will be sending out more information  in a few days in our next update.

Using a personalized approach to address challenges

Our photo was taken last year during the graduation day performance at our Champey Academy Summer Arts Camp. Although it depicts a happy scene of children demonstrating the skills which they learned in the camp, it nevertheless reminds us that our program at Champey must aim to provide much more than just cultural enrichment to the children whom we serve.

One of the young people shown in our photo is a young teenager from our AIDS Patient Family Support Program (FSP).  Both mother and student suffer from AIDS and have been supported by our FSP for more than 10 years.

Over the past two years the teenager’s mother has developed AIDS related dementia causing the mother to become increasingly neglectful of her child to the point that the teen no longer receives any parental guidance at home .  Our FSP team became concerned that this teen, for a variety of reasons was  vulnerable to potential exploitation and could  become another teenage victim of street life, drugs and prostitution.

Our teams at the FSP and at Champey worked hard to create an individual program to provide a safe and supervised structure for this young person and to provide ongoing adult guidance and at the same time we continue to actively monitor the mother and the situation in the ,home.

 We are grateful to our generous donors whose support allows us to continue to assist fragile families like these whose daily is impacted by AIDS and extreme poverty.

Thank you,

 

Barbara & Mark
