What is and what could be

At this time, we continue to maintain the working system we have established, as we plan for the future of this project. Since our last report we have been fortunate enough to be able to expand our SEAM library. We have received a substantial donation of books from our local book store – Textbook world. With this donation, the children will have access to wealth of additional educational material that they would normally use in school, but may not have access to outside school when doing homework.

Our lunch program has also continued to shine a light in the community. With the help our generous donors, we are able to provide a nutritious meal to the children when they come to the library for their activities. We continue to help develop their creative skills with jewelry and mat making lessons, after which they get to sell their products, and learn about financial and economic empowerment. The children also continue to expand their knowledge on farming and botany; lessons taught by the community’s local expert.

COHESU, which is the NGO through which we have been able to actualize the SEAM project, recently had its board meeting where member deliberated over ways in which we could strengthen the program. One of the ideas that was introduced after the meet, was to plan for an online version of the program (this would involve developing an online mentorship program that parents could subscribe to for their children at an affordable price), which would be made access to families who could afford the service. This is one of the ideas we are currently toying with for the future of the SEAM program. This proposal is currently at its infancy, and would take some time before it is comprehensively planned for and approved. However should we be successful in this endevour, this could help make the SEAM project self-sustainable, and provide additional resources which we could use for more projects and have a further reach.
