EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES IN RURAL AREAS

IN OUR EFFORTS TO PROMOTE CHILD EDUCATION

We are working with local communities to eliminate gender disparities and vulnerable situations in education and to promote sustainable lifestyles.

EMPOWERING RURAL COMMUNITIES

Our plans and goals for this programme
As we continue to work towards a sustainable goal in advancing education, we seek to empower communities by providing them with the knowlegde, skills and resources they will need to lift themselves out of poverty.

 

Under this sub-programme, we will work with communities;
  • in rural areas to sensitise and provide the knowlege and know-how on issues such as child education, need for education, vocational training.
  • to support them to gain relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship so that they can afford the costs of educating their children.

 

Most parents want to work to earn a living and be able to afford the cost of their children education. With a good support system in place and training, parents could be financially independent and be able to look after their children and fulfil their basic needs.

 

Our action plan
We plan to launch this sub-programme in December 2020.
We will organise workshops and seminars that will sensitise and empower communities to educate their children, develop new vocational skills, etc with a purpose of improving their lifestyles.

 

We will achieve this by:
• Organising workshops to sensitise or educate communities on need for child education, and the purpose of schools in communities.
• Working with other organisations to organise seminars and workshops to provide advise and support to communities on opportunities available to enable them to lift themselves out of poverty.

Domba's story

“I reached a point in my marriage where I did not know whether to stay with or leave my husband”.
Domba was married for 18 years to a bully, there had been times when she was close to causing herself harm and even contemplating taking her life.
Domba divorced her husband in 2015 when her little son Moussa Tenguino was only 3 years old. As a result of the divorce, Domba was kicked out of the family home and moved to the capital (Conakry) to find a job to support herself and her son (Moussa).
Fortunately, Domba was able to get a job but it wasn’t sustainable for her to pay for their accommodation, food and to send Moussa to school.
“Education is very important to me, I did not have the opportunity to go to school as a came from a poor family but I would love to send my son Mousa to school.”
