This project will aim to save 200 talibe children inwho are in perpetual connection with the street in search of food. This street situation of these children exposes them dangerously to contamination with Covid-19. With the measures taken by the state of Senegal which urge people to stay at home, the concern of the Association Jeunesse Espoir is to provide food, hygiene kits and awareness-raising to these children to help them stay out of the street because virus is on the street.
Covid-19 has confined almost all the people in this planet. During this period of confinement, talibe children frequenting the street daily to find food to eat must be confined in daaras or reception centers. During this confinement they will lack everything: food, hygienic products, awareness-raising on the behavior to adopt necessarily to avoid being contaminated. These children represent one of the most vulnerable social strata but are ironically forgotten by humanitarian aid distributed.
To overcome this problem during this pandemic period, Jenesse Espoir takes on the mission of helping children in perpetual connection with the street to stay confined in the daaras or reception centers. During their confinement distributions of food and hygienic kits will be done to responsibles for daaras (places where children are confined) so that they can feed themselves without problems during this confinement period. Awareness sessions will be held with the distancing measures of people.
By carrying out this project, a hundred street children confined to the daaras will have enough food during this period without needing to go to the streets in search of food. children's personal hygiene will also be improved with the distribution of hygiene kits and awareness-raising sessions on the disease and appropriate hygiene measures. This initiative will minimize the risk of covid-19 transmission of these vulnerable children and will provide caregivers with means to feed them properly.
