CWDR will provide psychosocial care, recreation, supplementary nutrition, and support like learning materials and school fees for tsunami-affected children to prevent school dropout.


Children are experiencing an incredible sense of loss and grief - loss of home, family members, friends, safety, health, education and most importantly hope. Few rehabilitation efforts have addressed the long-term psychological consequences of the disaster on children. They need to establish a daily routine as soon as possible as this reduces their fears and creates an atmosphere that helps them think into the future. Towards this direction CWDR is planning to help 1000 children.


12 childcare centers will be staffed, equipped with nutritional supplements and education materials, games, and visited by counselors. Vocational training and sexuality education for adolescent girls and school activities will also be provided.

Long-Term Impact

Malnutrition and diseases related to that will be reduced among children. Drop rate among girl children will reduce, they also learn vocational skill and about sexuality and reproductive health. Children will return to normalcy from Tsunami Trauma.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
