Thank you for the continuous support and please share our campaign with your friends and family members.
LUYODEFO is seeking partnership with One World Children's Fund, and since we are not a501c3 in the US, we need to have someone living in the US who would qualify to be a champion for your organization.
We are looking for people living in the US who can become our champions. One Wolrd Champions are people in the US who volunteer to raise money and awareness about partners of One World Children's Fund. For more information and the process, visit the One World Children's Fund website http://oneworldchildrensfund.org/champions/champion-model
HOW TO APPLY:
The volunteer can help any or all of the following thematic area activities:-
(1). Educational Development program:
• Help with teaching and assist teachers during their lessons at primary and secondary schools we work with.
• Planning mobile libraries for village children/ schools, setting-up reading clubs and organizing reading competitions.
• Setup a program to offer after school classes, early childhood development (ECD) alongside adult literacy; this will also involve meeting with teachers and parents and home visits to ensure joint responsibility of children’s education.
Very lucky, our organisation was approved to share a donated container of various items from crossroads foundation (www.crossroads.org.hk) with another organisation here in Kasese, western Uganda.
We really need volunteers to work out costings and other information for this initial startup please.
Shortly we will add on a basic kit pattern and materials needed for sanitary kit so this can be worked out better. We are currently researching the best one. From this we will create a list of materials needed. Then the volunteer must find out the costs of the materials that can be bought locally in the region of the Project. It may be that some materias may even not be available locally, this too is part of this process. Or a substitute may be looked into.
We are inviting talented artist to create pro bono information, education and communication (IEC) materials and also wishing to raise for $2,500 by 1st September,2012 to buy over 600 afripad menstrual kits to be distributed during the CLOTH PADS, SHARE THE BENEFIT”campaign to be launched 30th April, 2012. The aim is to reduce the stigma associated with menstruation through raise awareness, health education including counseling as well as distribute reusable pads.
You can be part of this campaign in any way you can afford ranging from:-
For every 100 girls that join Primary 1 in Kaliro District, only 25 are able to complete the first 7 years of education. Only 15 complete the next 4 years of secondary education and less than 5 join institutions or high school. Only one of these girls will reach University! Records from many primary schools show that the enrolment of girls in school in the lower classes is higher than that of boys almost a ratio of 1 boy to every 2 girls. While the records from higher education institutions show that the number of boys is far higher than that of girls almost 1 girl to every 10 boys!
Nakyerongosa village started a community resource centre after observing the need for such a facility in the area. The idea came about as a result of support from a retired community trainer who donated a few of his books because he wanted to give something back to the community. COMASA officials sensitised schools and community members about the programmes at the Centre. Since then people have realised the importance of the resource centre as a source of knowledge and it is making a world of difference for children whose schools are too poor to afford books.
