In my working experience as a voluntary, I came to understand the needs of children who have become head of their families. Grandparents have also become parents of these children whose parents have past away. Seeing this encourages me to start this project so that we can bring relief to the children and the elderly.
The Children have the right to grow up as children and feel their childhood. This also applies to grandparents that they too should be able to enjoy their aging and feel that they have done enough for their community.
How to achieve goals:
The programme of the project will be done by contacting ministries, local government, social welfare, youth and women department, health department, home affairs, foreign affairs, agriculture development and justice department and ministry of labour. Involving these ministries will help us to build a healthy community.
Relief programme for both young and elderly:
The initial work involves surveying communities to see how many heads exist per family and how many grandparents. The aim is to help build shelters and schools when the distance to school is vast. These communities should have their own schools focusing on elementary school. The schools should educate the young ones and also help those who have missed education to catch up. The program will also guarantee the younger brothers and sisters placement in nursery daycares etc. Grandparents will be supported by providing activities that are of interest in the community with regard to their experience and wisdom. Crucial areas are ensuring food supply, clean water, providing health care and the distribution of medication. HIV/Aids, tuberculosis and malaria are the biggest threats in these parts of the world. We will supply cooked food for 6 months or more (critical condition) and for children from 0-18 years long term supply for future adjustment.
To be able to achieve the project goals, we need each and everybody to join us who are interested and the project will be transparent.
