Project Report | Jul 24, 2023
First face is progressing fairly well

By Johannes Natangwe Shikuloh | Project Leader

Dear Supporters and Friends

This project helps 270 orphaned girls attend school and not deterred from full participation through lack of financial means, material or psycho-social need, stigma, discrimination or any other constraints. Moreover, the out of school orphans and vulnerable girls are encouraged to return to schools or provided with appropriate educational opportunities.

The rights of these children to education may no longer be under threat in the light of increasing poverty, youth unemployment, health life and development.

The project envisioned a target of 2700 Orphaned girls of school-going age in the Ohangwena Region attend school and are not deterred from full participation through lack of financial means, material or psycho-social need, stigma, discrimination or any other constraints.

Our Long-Term Impact to beneficaries

270 Orphaned girls of school-going age has been able to attending and kept in school and have not been deterred from full participation through lack of financial means, material or psycho-social need, stigma, discrimination or any other constraints, and 30 out of schools girls has been encouraged and motivated to return to schools and 20 girls has been provided with appropriate educational opportunities.

Parents and community involvement has been essential for the success of the project phase and the knowledge learned will ensure the project reaches a successful conclusion. The key objectives learned from the first phase are:

  • Connect girls with their parents to help manage the menstruation period during the stay at home, WASH practices and other hygiene issues helping to spread knowledge to the wider family and community.
  • Engage parents in girl’s hygiene and WASH activities.
  • Engage parents in decision making including the design and management of the project activities

Many thanks and our best wishes.

Johannes N. Shikuloh
