The risk situations of single mothers and young women is a priority for Dominican society, since they will be the ones who direct the various sectors in society, becoming fundamental elements for promoting progress and development.

The quarterly report, corresponding to the months of February, March and April 2021, shows the planning carried out focused on achieving the strategic objectives set out in our Strategic Plan, the structuring and definition was developed based on the analysis carried out by the technicians responsible for executing the actions of each of our projects. Especially the project to train single mothers and unprotected young people.

 

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, our face-to-face training interventions have been reduced. However, we have doubled our efforts to develop solidarity support alternatives for single-family families.

The results focus the efforts, to be able to fulfill the agreed commitments to generate incidence in 75 adolescents, with regard to obtaining the opportunity to participate in decisions within their family and community, improve communication with their families, increase opportunities for their integral development, improve their self-esteem, reduce risk factors, understand the family role, as well as the community role and identify their fundamental rights.

In addition, we have supported these families with donations of food, clothing, and sanitation supplies.

Activities are currently being carried out in the communities of Manresa Altagracia in Santo Domingo, as well as in rural areas of Baní and San Cristóbal, with the participation of 75 families, 50 who belong to the Joint Program and 25 who are not part of said program.

With the implementation of the Project in Santo Domingo, 80 single mothers are being trained, and 75 adolescents and their families are being trained. This is considered an innovative action, because the project not only seeks to create leaders with empowerment of the program, but also reaches the training and family training, generating a greater contribution to the rejection of risk situations in adolescents.

During these first 3 months of execution of the project, dissemination activities have been developed by community leaders in order to reach the goal of care for 75 families, several difficulties have been encountered, the main one being the lack of literacy of the mothers of young people participants, so the proposed methodology has been adapted to images.

 

We have accompanied our solidarity donation days with talks on empowerment, sexuality and reproduction, as we are aware that there is a risk situation in adolescents and in the community and that the data in this regard is alarming.

We are advancing on the path of supporting the integral development of Dominican single mothers and young women.

We wholeheartedly appreciate the support of so many noble souls who have stood in solidarity with this cause and have made a contribution, no matter how small.

We count on all of you to transform our vision into reality. A great center for socio-emotional support and training for the women of our country.

The document provides information on the results and products of the FUNCOMAS Technical Training Academy project. The report presents the results achieved during the sept. Dec 2020, in accordance with the established goals and indicators.

The main sources of information to produce this report are: the detailed monitoring of each component, the assembly minutes carried out, the memory aids of the Technical Committees, as well as the documents and plans prepared by the project team.

Communication Strategy

During the project, an important communication activity was developed, especially with regard to the qualification component of the debate in which the Quality Mission for Equality of Women in the Dominican Republic is found. So then, a presentation was made of the Quality Technical Education Report

A total of 500 copies of the management report were distributed, as well as information folders on the project.

Results of the project

The Beauty Academy has shown important advances with respect to itself in the level of achievement of its students' learning. These improvements become evident when the differences in the results obtained in the successive evaluations of previous years are compared.

All of this has been thanks to the support of our donors, and sponsors.

Also, the proportion of students who were above level 1 increased significantly. Similar results were obtained in the graduations. Despite the limitations of the pandemic, 30 poor young people graduated as professional beauty techniques.

Other activities

We Receive Food Donations: The donations came mainly from companies that donate products that are not suitable for sale for reasons that do not affect their safety.

The quality of the products delivered is a great concern for us, for this reason each product that reaches our team is verified to ensure that it meets the safety criteria and the presentation is worthy, before its delivery.

The food was delivered to people duly registered and verified as affected by COVID 19 or people with low resources. Recipients received at least one donation per month.

Gestión de Donaciones:

Durante este trimestre gestionamos y movilizamos recursos económicos de empresas y organismos públicos con transparencia, efectividad y equidad a organizaciones que operan proyectos de inversión social a favor de los jóvenes beneficiarios de nuestra institución

Iniciamos un programa de formación virtual para los estudiantes de nuestro centro con el objetivo de que pueden continuarse formando en la modalidad virtual durante el tiempo de aislamiento.

Hemos incentivado actividades recreativas, culturales y deportivas son parte fundamental en la formación de los niños y jóvenes. La práctica de estas actividades favorece su desarrollo mental, emocional y motriz. Fueron realizados dos eventos de esta naturaleza cumpliendo siempre con el protocolo de prevención y salubridad recomendado por las autoridades.

Desarrollamos dos talleres sobre Igualdad de Género en la modalidad virtual para continuar apoyando el desarrollo de este tema entre la comunidad de voluntarios y beneficiarios de la institución.

Realizamos un Operativo de donaciones de alimentos y paquetes de higienización para prevenir el contagio de COVID-19 para 60 familias de escasos recursos en colaboración con la Fundación Amémonos de Corazón.

Our project has been advancing according to the possibilities that the resources that we have managed to collect thanks to the solidarity of all our donors allow us.

  1. The specific steps we have carried out are:
  • Remodeling of our beauty academy.

We have already started the renovation process of our beauty academy. We changed the cement floor for a ceramic one, we improved details of the physical space and we acquired some products for the courses.

  • Digital transformation:

We started the process of digitizing our services to support more people through modern tools for distance education.

We have designed a new website with all the necessary features to expand the impact of work at Funcomas.

Get to know our website at www.funcomas.org

         2. Next steps

We are preparing for the reopening of our center after the state of alert for the pandemic and in a few weeks we will teach the first virtual workshop on entrepreneurship for women.

We are very happy with the results.

In the attached documents we will leave photos of the mentioned advances.

Thank you all for supporting us in creating a fairer Dominican Republic with more possibilities for women.
