Challenge

As a consequence of lockdown, the economy of workforce from informal sector has affected very badly:loss of employment especially in private sector,closure of many small-scale industries,increase of the essential goods prices. The lockdown will continue util the 3 of may at least.These next 3 weeks are crucial to avoid a wide stage of community spreading. With reduced to no income food still remains the biggest problem; most families are not able to eat more than once a day

Solution

To prevent the virus spreading the project will raise awareness on good hygiene practices and support the most vulnerable households with food distributions so that on one side they are in better health and on the other they can stay at home. Moreover, this support will ease the families' constraints, enable a contact with them to understand if there are child protection risks and therefore reduce the risk of girls dropping out of education

Long-Term Impact

The aim of the project is to reduce the lockdown effects on community in terms of social and economic issues in order to prevent the virus spreading but also to avoid child protection risks such as early pregnancies, child marriage or school drop out and, in larger terms, the outbreak of violence that may take place in case basic needs are not covered.
