    The grants officer,
    AGFUND FOUNDATION
    Nigeria
    REF: Concept Note.
    Dear, Sir/Madam.
    We came across your profile while searching for a grantor that will help us realize our goals,
    and we found your profile to be very interesting. We are pleased to present to you a concept note
    for your review.
    Project Title: Building a Strong Micro Business Enterprise for 4000 Women in Akamkpa,
    Awi, and Obutong Communities in cross River State.
    Background: Standard Life Organization (SLO) is a non governmental organization
    (NGO), non profit sharing organization base in AWI Akamkpa local government area of
    Cross River State. The organization is seeking a grant to expand its empowerment and
    poverty control programme in the rural communities. The objective is to help the
    poor/poorest women in these rural communities who are neither receiving support nor any
    form of empowerment support programme from the government, to break out from the grip
    of poverty and to meet up with the present day demand.
    The empowerment program is base on the latest research on effective poverty
    eradication. Funding in amount of N1,900,000 one million nine hundred thousand naira only
    requested for staff training, and materials for skills acquisition program as well as supportive
    micro credits for those that passed out from the skills acquisition center and profitable micro
    enterprises workshop to enable them establish profitable microenterprise that would improve
    their standard of living.
    Objective: Standard life organization seeks to empower the poor to break out of the grip of
    poverty. Specifically, SLO seeks to:
    Enhance income-generating capacity of the poor women through access to flexible
    micro credit services
    Promote self-employment within the target group
    Inculcate into the poor women profitable micro business enterprise skills

    Create alternative livelihood for poor rural women through access to skills acquisition
    programme
    Problem Descriptions: According to the research carried out by staff of SLO In
    Akamkpa, Awi, old Neltim, oyaga Obuntum communities, it was discovered that:
    1. Women have to struggle hard to feed themselves and children. Reason is that, they
    depend upon unprofitable micro enterprises.
    2. 65% of the women leave less than N200 per day because they lack sustainable
    sources of income,
    3. 60% of them leave in one room apartment with their grown up children.
    4. Majority of them are unable to send their children to school, because they lack basic
    life sustainable skills. More also the poor women in these communities are too
    disadvantaged to benefit from existing credit scheme operated by government and
    formal financial institutions. They are totally neglected.
    The challenge at this stage is to seize the opportunity, to take the risk, to realize an
    innovative, rewarding and productive future and alternative livelihood for the women and if
    these women are not given urgent assistance, they are more likely to be evaded.
    Beneficiaries: our target is the poor, neglected women in the villages/rural communities in
    south-south geo political zone of Nigeria. A total of 305 women at Akamkpa, Awi, and Old
    Neltin community in Cross River State has benefited from the project. They were trained and
    introduce to different profitable micro business enterprises at wish a micro loan of N20, 000
    was given to 205 of the trained women to establish a profitable micro enterprises. May while,
    a total of 159 are currently going through training why hundred already trained of them are
    awaiting disbursement.
    Project activities:
    The following activities are being carried out during implementation period.
    Activity. 1. Standard life organization, members supporting officers (mso) is to create
    awareness using person to person method. The field staffs meets the women in their various
    homes and organize them into self help groups or unions with a minimum of 10, maximum of
    30 member per group, and member supporting officer meet with different group once in a
    week to train them on profitable microenterprises as well as identifying those that need
    financial support.
    Activity. 2. The organization design a participation form as refined targeted tools with five
    keys- indicators to determine the poor/poorest in the communities. Our targets are poor
    persons who belong to bottom 30%. With the use of this indicator, it has been discover that
    there is a high prevalence of poverty amongst the women in the rural dueler.
    These key indicators include:
    · Steadiness of household income. The more unsteady the brighter the chances of
    enrolling as a member of SLO group
    · Regularity of daily feeding of household
    · Condition and space of dwelling place the worse, the better chance of becoming a
    beneficiary
    · Frequency of cooking special foods in house hold
    · Sleeping arrangement in house hold.
    The participation form with the above 5 key indicators is specifically design by the organization
    as part of its activities to serves as a questionnaire that is administer by the staff to
    determine those women that are really poor as well as the poorest which is the organizations
    may focus. With the use of the participation form, we discovered at AWI Community, old
    Netim community, Akamkpa community in Cross river state that over 70% household feed
    twice in two days, special food are only eaten twice a year (Christmas and new year ceremony),
    more also, majority of the family sleep in one room apartment as a result of poverty.
    Expected Outcome:
     Enhance income-generating capacity
     Awareness creation, poverty mentality change
     Promote self-employment within the target group
     Easy access to affordable micro credit
     Promote group discussion amongst target group, increase in socialization
     Acquired new profitable micro businesses skills
     Establishment of profitable micro business enterprises.

    follows your agency’s policy on Social Development fund, to benefit the poor women in the
    rural communities of Cross River State. We will look forward to hearing your reactions to this

    With the interest to promote a physical, social, economical, political and spiritual well being of vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the communities’ livelihood is the basic component. South Sudan Youth and women can be more productive if involved in food production and security. This can be done in four areas: involving the rural youth in farming, buying their produce with motivating prices, help in processing their products and looking for national and international markets for the products. This will alleviate poverty, provide food security and create large employment base.So now can you email me the form for the grant and the guide line to my email so that we can also apply.

    Overview

    SizaBantwana operates in the Bushbuckridge and Hazyview district, of the Mpumalanga Province,
    amongst vulnerable and orphaned children. These children live in the homes of relatives or caring
    neighbours who are supported by the SizaBantwana volunteers. After school, the children are
    served a meal at a SizaBantwana care centre, prepared by caring and trained volunteers. The
    children play outside under the trees and sit mostly on the ground when eating – probably the
    only meal that many of the children will receive for the whole day. Some of the food is donated
    by local farmers and the balance is purchased from donations by a caring public.
    Children attending this project do not only need food, but also love and tender care. Some of
    these children are terminally ill and may not live to see another Christmas. Volunteers are trained
    on how to best provide much needed care to the orphans, destitute children, and the terminally
    sick. In addition, SizaBantwana provides holistic social services to help children cope and religious
    services to show them the love of God. SizaBantwana currently cares for 490 orphaned children

    You can make a difference in the life of a child.
    Your contribution directly assists a child.
    Individual and corporate support enables us to look after these orphaned and vulnerable
    children.

    Purpose
    The purpose of the Education grants program is to enhance the quality of, and access to, education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.
    Goals
    • Support the development and implementation of educational initiatives that: Contribute to excellence in teaching and learning; foster student citizenship and volunteerism; and strengthen school communities through the participation of students, parents, educators, and the community
    • Improve educational access and program completion rates for all students, particularly for those facing economic or cultural barriers or with special needs.
    • The principal objective of the programme is to promote open and democratic societies founded on the rule of law and based on a stable political and economic development. In order to learn from the experiences of the Neighbourhood Programme, it has been decided to carry out an independent evaluation. While activities within the programme fall within four different focus areas, the objective of this evaluation is to assess and document the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the support given within the specific area of ‘Economic Development’, both at the level of the priority area as a whole and the individual projects.
    • The evaluation is a learning-focused evaluation, which will serve as an input into the ongoing discussions within the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs on how best to promote private sector driven economic growth and employment. It should therefore distil key lessons learned regarding the strategies, approaches and methods used in the Neighborhood Programme.
    • Encourage learners to develop healthy self-esteem including a respectful appreciation of their own and others’ individual, ethnic and cultural identity
    • Advance educational approaches and facilitate access to enhanced literacy for all age groups Disseminate successful program models, and promote innovation in a specific area of learning
    • Contribute to the professional growth of educators and the advancement of innovative approaches to learning
    • Demonstrate collaborative planning, competent financial management and appropriate use of community resources
    Environment

    The socio-Economic survey revealed that 55 children in the age group of 6-12 could not attend the government school, as their families economic status is very vulnerable and could not support their children’s day-to-day basic needs. The organization made arrangements for their rehabilitation by making them access to clothing; nutritious food, health, and education. The organization started a Residential school for these children. Two teachers, wardens and 2 Cooks have been appointed to look after the children’s day-to-day need.

    Chickballapur Taluk of Chickballapur district is situated in an arid region.
    The net area sown in the region varies heavily due to erratic and undeterminable rainfall that always varies. This results in the dry land cultivators being unable to predict rains properly and the sown loosing its germination capacity.

The agriculture labour/poor peasants get employment about 150 to 180 days in a year. In a family of five members, the per capita income of a person per day is Rs. 7.90ps. The very basis for illiteracy ignorance, low scholastic level, malnourishment, low birth weight infant mortality, and high mortality rate of adults of rural poor is this economics.

    Awareness programs:-
    a. Human and Natural Resources Development and management:-
    The organization had taken necessary education measures to protect natural resources, Which are diminishing at an alarming rate.
    The rural economic such as denudation of forests cover. Extinction of flora, fauna and bio-mass, depletion of ground water, top soil erosion, breaching and siltation of traditional water harvesting structures, breaching and siltation of traditional water harvesting structures, encroachment into grazing lands, and exploitation of sand deposits in the rivers. The above situation has severely hampered agro-economy and allied activities resulting in frequent drought condition. The majority population in rural areas depends on agricultures and allied activities. Now the farmers and rural labor families are facing unemployment. Resulting in insecurity.
    Bearing in mind the above crisis, the organization has taken steps to create greater awareness among the rural inhabitants to protect and develop their natural resources by taking remedial measures such as rain water conservation in the dried up wells, diversion of rain water to desilted farm ponds, plugging of gullies to control top soil erosion by putting contour bounding all across the slopes.
    a. HIV/AIDS Awareness program:-
    It has come to light that some people have been suffering from genital infections and other symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases. When ever the staff nurses visits the villages the paramedical workers have been reporting to the nurse that some patients are suffering from suspected symptoms STDs.
    The patients suspected of having infection of STDs. Have been sent to hospital laboratories to get their blood tested. The reports revealed that 56 patients, and skin diseases.
    It has been suspected that some of vulnerable section in the villages may be having HIV/AIDS and SIT infection. The patients with symptoms of STDs would not reveal their sickness bearing ostracization from the members of their family and village community. The patients with STD infection have been supported with medical expenses to get complete cure.
    The organization, keeping in the view prevalent situation of vulnerability to STDs and HIV/AIDS, planned to organize STD, HIV/AIDS awareness camps in the villages. The para medical workers have been trained in HIV/AIDS awareness to educate the rural population with regard to spread of HIV?AIDS epidemic through sexual intercourse, blood transfusion, use of sterilized needles, blades etc., the para medical workers along with the staff nurse have had organized 20 HIV/AIDS awareness camps in the villages in order to educate the people not to have sex with strangers, to avoid unsafe sex and to use condoms and to take preventive measures to control and combat the further spread of HIV/AIDS epidemic.
    b. Awareness Camps on water and Air borne diseases:
    Polluted environmental sanitation and unhygienic surroundings of sources of drinking water bore wells in the villages are causing health hazards among the people. 15 to 28% percent of each villages population would suffer from water borne infections such as hepatitis-A, typhoid, diarrhea, respiratory tract infection and other skin diseases.
    Series of meeting have been conducted in the village to educate the people to get rid of water borne infections. After long course of interaction with the people, under the leadership of community of leaders, volunteers took up the responsibility to cleanse the heaps of decomposing garbage, repair of drinking water bore well plot forms, and diversion of stagnated water to drainage. The villagers unanimously resolved to keep clean their surroundings of households and protect drinking water from contamination.
    c. Environment Awareness Programs:-
    Environment awareness program had taken place when the water and air borne diseases were tackled in the project area. It was decided that each family should raise at least two trees in front of their households and raise kitchen garden by reusing the wastewater disposed out of households. Avenue tree plantation program was initiated during rainy season of July 2004. The villagers planted 2678 plants on either side of approach roads leading to the main roads.
    Organization planed to implement these programme in a action through the financial support.

    Food
    Imagine seeing your children slowly starving… and having nothing to feed them. For countless destitute families, this is a grim reality. Your gift today will bring lifesaving food to hungry children and their families.
    Housing
    For the poorest of the poor, “home” might be little more than a few sticks, mud, and scraps of plastic or metal. Your gift for housing will help provide a family with a safe, basic home and restore their human dignity.
    Water
    Clean, safe drinking water is essential for life. In developing countries, access to safe drinking water can be limited, often resulting in serious illnesses and death. Your gift will help provide lifesaving water to those lacking clean drinking water and sanitation.
    Medical Care
    In developing countries, hospitals and clinics often lack the most basic equipment and supplies to treat patients. Doctors and nurses often stand by helplessly, unable to administer lifesaving aid. Your gift can help provide items ranging from basic anti-diarrhea medicine to advanced medical equipment.
    Education
    Unlike in the United States, education in developing countries is not free. Parents must pay for uniforms, books, school supplies and other necessities. Children too poor to attend school are often sent to work on the streets, and so a lack of education reinforces the vicious cycle of poverty. Your gift for education can help break that cycle and will benefit a child for a lifetime.
    Micro-Enterprise Development
    Often, poor families are trapped in poverty because they have no viable means of earning income. What better way to help improve lives than to give a village the means to sustain itself economically? Your gift for a self-sustaining project will have a profound and lasting effect in the lives of those you help.

This organization was founded in 2010 by a generous couple (Mr. and Mrs. Mugurusi) after realizing the challenges single parents and their children are facing in Kabarole District Fort Portal Uganda.
