Covid taught communities to be prepared. In 3 rural villages, Console Mission started 54 health groups focuses on prevention. And to impact their community at once, children can play an important role. Therefore, strengthening children's capacity by investing in to develop psychosocial behaviors is most important. To do that, indoor games are prioritized, suitable for both girls and boys. 'Carrom board' helps in developing hand and eye coordination, teamwork and fair play sticking with rules.
Pandemic, in a developing or poor country like Nepal highly affected. People learned to prevent like keeping distance from each other, wearing masks and personal hygiene. They become thoughtful and liked the idea of focus on prevention. But there are health concerned groups set by individuals and organizations that they rarely care about. They think it is not their task. It is important that every individual and family participate and focus on prevention.
This project will work to strengthen the capacity of 18 local government representatives and 54 volunteers. They think that children, the new generation or the young one must learn. And they will be the people to spread the knowledge about prevention. Later they carry on the responsibility of helping their village communities to focus on prevention. To do that, it is important to develop children to be wellbeing by strengthening their both physical and psychological health.
In the project focused geographical area, since there are no hospitals & proper health services from the government, it is essential that the local focus on preventive health. It is expected that since focusing on prevention is cost-effective, after the health preventive group functions well in several villages, that will get support from the local health post & the government. And having such a group means a good management & partnership opportunity for like-minded health-focused institutions.
