Support 50 Vulnerable Children in Calabar
Apr 25, 2022



The Professor Charles Effiong Foundation continues to support vulnerable children across Cross River State, especially in Calabar South, Calabar Municipality and Akamkpa Local Government Areas. These support provided to beneficiaries (children and caregivers) has been in the areas of education (payment of school fees, school visits and counselling), psychosocial support (Kids and Adolescent Club meetings and Caregivers’ Forum), health (payment of medical bills, health education, nutrition assessments, counselling and education).

All the above mentioned services were provided in the reporting quarter to 24 household caregivers and 50 children (27 males and 23 females across four (4) primary, and eight (8) secondary schools) in the Foundation’s Support 50 vulnerable Children Project. With the increasing cost of living in this part of the world, caregivers were educated on home financial management during the quarter’s caregivers’ forum. This particular session stressed on the need of producing family consumed food through homestead gardening. It also stressed on household budgeting and prioritization of needs. This was conducted with the caregivers to further improve care of children in households as well as bring about sustainability of the project.

Among our successes recorded in the reporting period were improved academic performance of children. This was observed in the children’s academic reports as well as teacher’s observations and reports during school visits. Another success observed, were improved interpersonal relationship between caregivers and children. This was evident during family counselling sessions and home visits. These successes were achieved through various engagements between Foundation Staff, with children, caregivers and teachers.

The Foundation aims to continue supporting vulnerable children, thereby creating a ripple effect of development in the society. We are grateful for your continuous support as it has helped us achieved our goals in the lives of these ones.
