Challenge

Due to an economy based on subsistence agriculture, the families living in the municipality of Nginda face a condition of extreme poverty. In this region, the mortality rate due to childbirth is high, because of inadequate medical care. This leads to a high number of orphans and abandoned children, who are left to themselves, without medical care and adequate daily meals. The abandoned children are often forced to live on the street, becoming victims of prostitution or other forms of slavery.

Solution

To counter this dramatic situation, the parson and many families of the villages have made themselves available to host and help these children. To increase the knowledge on how to guarantee a correct care for children who experienced traumatic events, some training courses are organized for the hosting families. The priest and the heads of the community will schedule recurring visits to monitor the situation. Finally, a small farm will be started, in order to cover medical and school expenses.

Long-Term Impact

Thanks to the education and care received, young people will be able to start small local development projects and they will contribute to the improvement of their community. As a result, they will be less driven to abandon the village. Moreover the project directly involves the local community, which has already activated in order to find solution to this issue. This project will infuse an even stronger sense of integration and social cohesion which will benefit the whole community.
