Challenge

The most vulnerable children in Nigeria include minors with no parents, children living with HIV, and minors in the care of the aged and infirmed. Many of these children will grow up without having a real childhood.

Solution

IICWIN provides psychosocial services to the most marginalized and socially isolated children in rural, under served areas, and to the urban poor. This project will provide training and supplies to community members (caseworkers) to expand targeted care and development programs through kids clubs. Clubs will enroll 25 children in defined age groups: 0-2, 3-5, 6-12, and 13-17. Children will receive health screens, education support and social assessments from a pair of dedicated caseworkers.

Long-Term Impact

This project will improve age-appropriate care, awareness of child rights, and institutional capacity to protect vulnerable children in the Ibarapa communities In addition, Over 120 community caseworkers will be equipped with child care skills Over 1000 adults (parents, guardians, step parents, and relatives) of vulnerable children will receive counseling to improve their parenting, care, and coping skills Over 1500 children will receive high quality child psychosocial services
