This project is a one to one child sponsorship undertaken in partnership with Because of Kennedy/USA. The following three main activities are mentioned hereunder.
A. Child support
Child support to enable the target children to pursue their studies is the focus of the project. The children who are double and single orphaned, and those who are from the destitute families are the beneficiaries of the project. There are 112 children served in the program while living with their relatives/extended families. The project provides the following services, among others, for the children: school fee, education materials, medical treatment, clothing, and supplementary food, counseling, spiritual, shelter, etc services.
B. Family empowerment
Family empowerment that facilitates child development is the focus of the Stand for Vulnerable Organization (SVO). The strategy is to organize families of beneficiary children into self-help business groups. This helps to train them on saving, employment generation skills, discovery of self-esteem and encouragement to secure livelihood. The skill and knowledge gained from the process motivates them to engage them in income generating activities in a sustainable way that helps them to develop a capacity of sending one’s kid into school.
