OUR ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

1

The children, after a gathering

We work with children who have problems, and children who are a problem to society. With “the society”, we mean the family and the environment – everything that affects people in a positive or negative direction. Our target group are those who have been exposed to negative influences. We aim to give them positive influences andguide them in a positive direction.

There are many children who can not go to school becau

Distribution of school supplies

se of the lack of money for school fees. They start school at the beginning of the school year, but they might have to stop during the year; about a third of all pupils at primary and secondary school never complete the school year. When we are asked for help, we make a selection. If the pupils we choose show dedication to their education, we support them with school fees until they finish high school. Sometimes we get requests from far away.

Another category are the children who are abandoned by their families, the so called “street children”. We start by getting to know them, then we support them, and finally we take care of them. We give them food, clothing and shelter. We let them go to school and some of them learn a handcraft. We also take responsibility for their health. Most importantly, we teach them to read and write in order for them to be able to move on in life.

Literacy for street children

 

We work with farming for unemployed adolescents, but sometimes they also get the chance to learn other professions.

A school our children go to

Often, the children themselves contact us directly; sometimes we get suggestions from others, like for example managers in schools, who ask us to help talented children who can not afford to pay their fees.

We work to raise awareness among the children so that they can feel useful in society. To reinforce this, we have started to build houses. We have, however, been delayed, because the manufacturer of the doors has let us wait for seven months.

 

 Ce bâtiment servira à loger les enfants en bonne sécurité car certains vont à l’école, ils ont besoin d’une sécurité des biens des objets scolaires et autres.

In this house, some of the children will live. They need the house to keep their school supplies and other belongings safe.

 

 

We continue with farming for unemployed adolescents, even if we have problems with climate change. With irrigation, we try to get harvests also during the low season.

These adolescents need money for their school fees and some need money to learn a trade.

  1. Det är ett tålmodigt arbete som ni lägger ner, som jag hoppas skall ge er tillfredsställelse och mod att fortsätta.
    Skulle gärna hjälpa men har inga ekonomiska möjligheter,
    vad gör man utan det i detta fallet?
