  2. To prevent and eliminate diseases which come as a result of sharing essentials like beddings.
  3. To instill certain traits in children like being responsible for their personal belongings.

  5. To create awareness in guardians on the full rights of a child regardless of orphanage or vulnerability.

Risks:

Children Rescue Voluntary Organization (CRVO) will ensure sustainability of the project through continuous sensitizations of both children and guardians on proper maintenance of the procured materials as well as advocating for sanitation and hygiene promotion at household level. Children will also be empowered to know their rights and to have a sense of responsibility. Once this project is funded it has the potential to reach the most vulnerable community members with comprehensive, effective and quality services since it has  the integral management and implementation framework under the leadership and technical guidance of CRVO staff. board and local leaders

Follow-up of the project

Date: January 15th 2014

General status:

After the receipt of the needed funds and as most of the necessary goods are available on the market, 5 guardians and 3 staff members of CRVO went visiting the children in the families, to check on the specific needs. Afterwards the necessary goods were purchases in the shops. 
Today the purchases were divided amongst the children. Attached you’ll find the pictures showing all what happened today.
The beds are ordered at the carpentry workshop and will be ready in about 2 weeks. Then the beds and the mattresses will also be given to the children. This brought even more smiles on their faces today.

The day was full of dances. i have received reports from the community that, as they were going home, they went singing and dancing on the streets, which prompted many people to follow them. They were very excited and very thankful to you for the support.
When I saw how they were rejoicing shouting, saying “wings of hope thank you for remembering and understanding our problems!!! I was touched and felt so humbled for this. This project indeed was relevant to households. When we visited homes no single child had all these equipment that have been given to them,
Their rejoicing and singing as they went back home from the project, was really right when you see the state they have been living in.

This project will enable the guardians to care for their property and improve their standards of living.

Problems/concerns:

There is still need to improve on the food security and ensure that each household as enough food and to ensure that children get proper nutrition which is still a big challenge. CRVO intends to purchase more land that will enable us to grow variety of food stuff for the children.
