    We serve to introduce to you Child Hope Initiative Project ( CHIP ) , this is a registered nonprofit and a community based organization (CBO) established December 2009 in Kole district – northern Uganda , to help children/youth and women from marginalized communities especially the victims of a prolonged wars in northern Uganda engineered by a notorious rebel Joseph Kony and his bandits – lord resistant army rebels (LRA) . Education and other social services in these war ravaged areas and certainly whole of northern region have been delayed due to insurgency meaning that people are in constraint economically resulting to humiliating poverty , Child hope initiative project still deliver its services to a small number of children/youth and women due to lack of limited resources however our service will not be limited we wish to extend our project delivery programs in its pilot districts of Lira , Alebtong , Oyam , Otuke and others which has been severely affected by wars conflict , cattle natural disasters and other catastrophes .

    Child Hope Initiative Project has a rehabilitation center which is governed by board members and volunteers corps all affiliated to the project , the project programs has a cross -cutting theme which runs education- technical or vocational and computer trainings , counseling and guidance , HIV/AIDS awareness , adult literacy , counseling and guidance , sex- education both at primary schools and post secondary schools among others) we have a growing numerous of beneficiaries of which 30% are female children are war victims who were abducted by the rebels of lord resistant army of Joseph kony (LRA) and returned home after suffering a tremendous inhuman treatments that need an intensive rehabilitation care education center like what child hope initiative thrive to achieves , however we serve people of all age and background .

    Since the lord resistant army rebels under the leadership of Joseph Kony civil war broke in 1986 infrastructures were destroyed throughout the regional side this led to an intensive and severe and constraint limited access to basic and social services such as education and child vaccination programs etc , children do not graduate from primary school or repeat many classes , schools in this region were destroyed and teachers went untrained for many years , leaving numbers of children out of school and illiterate . Child Hope Initiative Project reach marginalized children-girls , ethnic minorities and children affected by HIV/AIDS , fishing families , pastrolist communities , war affected and other catrosphies , from early childhood throughout adulthood , these children need support both economically and psychically .

    HIV is rapidly spreading within the population of Kole district and northern Uganda at large. The people suffering from this disease need care and treatment. But to change this district or regional’s fate, Kole district needs so much more than care, alone.

    Our HIV and AIDS programs provide three levels of support: care and encouraging patients to attend regular treatment, psychosocial support and prevention education. Our volunteers go into homes in 40 communities throughout the pilot sub- counties to care for bedridden patients. To date, we have provided basic care services to 21 patients. Our services also enable young patients living with HIV to remain in school throughout the year.

    Education is the key in reducing poverty in the society. Literacy levels in Rift Valley are still very low, despite the introduction of free primary and secondary education. Access to quality and relevant education, retention and transition remain a big challenge owing to poverty, nomadic lifestyles, insecurity owing to conflicts and poor infrastructure. Poor access to learning materials and limited number of teachers also contributes to another challenge in providing good quality education

    HIV/AIDS is not the only disease affecting the people of Kole district . Malaria is also a major concern according the ministry of health , Kole has the highest malaria cases in Uganda and is the cause of primary school absentism . Our malaria prevention program teaches children how to prevent and control the disease, including providing treated bed nets to families. The children who have participated in this program say they can now pass on the information they have acquired to their families.

    Using our community-based structures, we help the Ministry of Health encourage families to immunize their children. In addition, we conduct water and sanitation campaigns to promote better sanitation in Kole district as well as the use of safe, clean water. We sensitize and demonstrate them easy way to provide pit latrines to families. In communities such as Bala , Alito, Akalo and Aboke sub counties respectively , the percentage of families with pit latrines has increased from 13 to 40 percent we feel this is not enough considering the breakdown of cholera and related water or air-born diseases. And in select communities, new water systems have been implemented with community health workers and staff monitoring these systems.

    Fulfilling more than basic needs

    Our Early Childhood Care Development programs teach parents that children need more than shelter, food and clothing. We help parents learn how to stimulate their children’s development. While our only rehabilitation center (childcare center) here in Kole district has begun to provide children with nutritious meals and monitor their growth, they also encourage parents to volunteer in the centers to reinforce healthy child care practices at home. Child care workers regularly check in with parents and children to ensure that children are receiving the best care and families living in urban areas are taught about the nutritional value of specific foods, including how to grow home gardens to feed their children.

    To support sustainable livelihood development in this country, vocational apprenticeships are available to school dropouts, youth affected by HIV and AIDS, youth-headed families and disabled youth in the fields of carpentry, masonry, metal crafts and mechanics. Other courses include record and book keeping, business planning, budgeting, money management and marketing – all skills that will help youth support their families.

    Your support will help us render the people of Kole district , northern Uganda – especially the children – escape the deadly clutches of HIV/AIDS and live healthy, happy lives.

    GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT

    Development processes across Kole district is characterized by gender bias and especially inequalities in both participation and enjoyment of benefits occurring from development initiatives. (CHIP) has developed strategies along objectives that ensure all development projects it undertakes incorporate gender interests and needs that suit the current trade of professions, aimed at building the capacity and empowering women and girls to take more control of their live-hood. Socio-cultural considerations have had the tendency to relegate women in marginalized communities and disadvantaged position in bargaining for more socio-economic independence, owing to their position and background in a strict cultural setting despite their important roles and valid contributions to development, compared to men. That’s why CHIP have Women in key board positions and in volunteers corps and 30 percent more compare to men and youth led organization.

    Objectives:
    1. To promote women’s and men’s involvement in development in a mutually beneficial manner;
    2. To promote women’s abilities to influence decisions on development initiatives,
    3. To advocate for increased gender equity in resource allocation and utilization;
    4. To contribute to advocate for higher and equal participation in development processes by both gender;
    5. To promote a sense of self-reliance among different genders, especially women

    distribution of resources, and where people are free to be the authors of
    their own development. We help the vulnerable and margenlised groups
    without any discrimination and we have the systems – based on social
    accountability.
    CEDA is working hard to initiate and promote gender sensitization in the
    area, provide women access to markets, giving wider experience of the
    world outside the home, access to information and possibilities for
    development of other social and political roles. It also Organize
    awareness campaigns for Girl's Education. CEDA is working hard to achieve
    the following objectives:-
    • To free underprivileged children from the pangs of hunger.
    • To empower them with an access to education.
    • To enable them think clearly and work effectively.
    • alleviate malnutrition problem.
    CEDA is promoting and encouraging the education of underprivileged
    children because we believe that education can unlock the vicious and
    self-perpetuating cycle of hunger and poverty. We also provide skill-based
    training to victims and encourage their participation in peace building
    activities. If we fail to achieve these objective, our dream to acieve the
    mellenium development goals will be a wishful thinking.

  26. Dr. Madan Chand Sark says:

    I am a researcher in social sciences. I have more than 25 years of research experience. I have visited some of the developing countries (except USA) including Canada and have seen the lives there; how they have truned hell into hevean and made space for evey individual to live at least with a minimum level of decent living. I think India's development goal has been missing some vital element making it superfluous as it was exhibited by it in organising therecent CWGs (a show of the "Indians" (elite indians) and not "Bharatiyas" (those poor majority Indians who were not even granted food security). We should learn from the West and ractify our course of development turing it to more pro-people than to pro-rich and thereby stopping the situation to get amashed further. In view of this I would like to participate to learn something concrete from the SIDA sopnsored International Training Programmes (on climate change and human rights for women. I wish the programme a grand success.

    PEAP Africa will carry out the below activities aimed at achieving her overall objectives:
    i) To Conduct a comprehensive overall needs assessment for all targeted beneficiaries with a view to determine areas of needs and capacity for placement in appropriate interventions;
    ii) To mobilize and recruit expertise through various strategies that shall involve interesting the mass media and publicity;

    iv) To organize and conduct, training workshops and seminars on Grassroots participation in the Socio-Economic Development, Human Rights awareness all other aspects so as to provide an opportunity for targeted beneficiaries to acquire appropriate skills in self-sustaining efforts.

    The following activity programmes are envisaged:

    1. PEACE BUILDING AND CONFLICT MANAGEMENT
    The Rift Valley, especially North Rift is akin to frequent resource related conflicts resulting from cattle wrestling, land, natural resources such as water, pastureland, forests, etc.

    Objective:
    PEAP Africa endeavors to:
    a. Strengthen community peace structures;
    b. Promote nationhood and ethnic harmony;
    c. Foster peaceful co-existence and facilitate peace, education amongst warring communities;
    d. Contribute to the reduction of violence against children in and out of school;
    e. Raise awareness and campaign against all forms of gender-based violence;
    f. Empower communities on peace building, healing, forgiveness and reconciliation.

    2. EDUCATION
    Education is the key in reducing poverty in the society. Literacy levels in Rift Valley are still very low, despite the introduction of free primary and secondary education. Access to quality and relevant education, retention and transition remain a big challenge owing to poverty, nomadic lifestyles, insecurity owing to conflicts and poor infrastructure. Poor access to learning materials and limited number of teachers also contributes to another challenge in providing good quality education.

    Objective:
    1. To advocate for access to quality and appropriate formal/informal education;
    2. To promote and advocate for a value-based education system in Kenya;
    3. To lobby and advocate for enactment and/or investment of education policies and legislations;
    4. To contribute to and support government efforts in proving adult and functional literacy;
    5. To enhance access to education, retention in school and transition to higher levels among bright and disadvantage children.

    3. ENVIRONMENT
    Kenya is endowed with some of the world’s richest natural resources and ecosystems. Globally, it is recognized as one of the few mega diverse countries. The country has complex environment providing habitats to thousands of unique plants and animal species. However, this heritage is threatened by increasing demands of a fast growing population and development. It is deplorable that by 2007, Kenya’s forest cover had reduced to less than 1.6% compared to 10% international benchmark.

    Objectives:
    1. To contribute towards conservation and protection of the environment and sustainable utilization of natural resources;
    2. To mobilize communities and stakeholders to understand and respond to climate change and right of water;
    3. To promote ecologically sustainable methods of utilization of natural resources;
    4. To promote pro-active response to disasters;
    5. To contribute to reduction of the degradation of the regenerating capacity of the renewable natural resources.

    4. GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT
    Development processes across Kenya is characterized by gender bias and especially inequalities in both participation and enjoyment of benefits accruing from development initiatives. PEAP Africa has developed strategies along objectives that ensure all development projects it undertakes incorporate gender interests and needs, aimed at building the capacity of women and girls to take more control of their lives. Socio-cultural considerations have had the tendency to relegate women to a poor disadvantaged position in bargaining for more socio-economic independence, owing to their position and background in a strict cultural setting despite their important roles and valid contributions to development, compared to men. That’s why PEAP Africa is Women and youth led organization.

    Objectives:
    1. To promote women’s and men’s involvement in development in a mutually beneficial manner;
    2. To promote women’s abilities to influence decisions on development initiatives, especially with regards to devolved funds such as CDF, LATF, etc;
    3. To advocate for increased gender equity in resource allocation and utilization;
    4. To contribute to advocate for higher and equal participation in development processes by both gender;
    5. To promote a sense of self-reliance among different genders, especially women.

    5. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
    PEAP Africa’s strategy of working with poor communities living in the Great Lakes Region like in Kenya Rift Valley is aimed at empowering them to initiate and identify their own income generating projects that have long-term sustaining mechanisms. Under economic development, communities will be mobilized to undertake value-adding initiatives. The process is also aimed at strengthening awareness of socio-economic differences in the community and the need for solidarity and support.

    Objectives:
    1. To develop tools for identifying the poorest households in the region;
    2. Assisting community groups in coming up with income generating projects to improve and sustain their livelihoods;
    3. To contribute to sustainable increase in incomes;
    4. To contribute to sustainable increase in food security and food secure households.
    6. HIV/AIDS
    Although there is hope and noted decline in HIV prevalence, HIV/AIDS remains a major challenge to socio-economic development. Hundreds of people continue to be infected by this deadly virus and the rate of new infections remains high. The negative socio-economic impact that the disease inflicts on society as evidenced by the cumulative number of orphans and other vulnerable children, widows and the elderly as well as the high levels of poverty and unemployment in the country call for concerted efforts in addressing means to curb further spread of the disease.

    Objectives:
    1. To conduct awareness and sensitization campaigns with the aim of educating communities on the dangers of HIV/AIDS;
    2. To support HBC and related programmes so as to accelerate the impact in health education;
    3. To identify OVCs and other persons in need;
    4. To conduct counseling programmes in schools, villages, market centers, and other places of contact;
    5. To collaborate with like-minded organizations in carrying out research, monitoring and evaluation.

    7. DISASTER RESPONSE AND MANAGEMENT
    It is important to address all potential areas of disasters, disaster response as well as supporting and re-building society after disaster has occurred. Generally, any disaster management is the continuous process by which all individuals, groups and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid or ameliorate the impact of disasters resulting from hazards.

    Objectives:
    1. To establish emergency response policies, standards, organizational arrangements and operational plans to be followed after a disaster;
    2. To strengthen community-based disaster preparedness;
    3. To develop activities that are useful for both addressing everyday risks that communities face and for responding to disaster situations;
    4. To link, collaborate and network with like-minded organizations in developing a comprehensive disaster preparedness strategy including preparedness plans, early warning systems and community-Based disaster preparedness;
    5. To develop training manuals for communities, first-aiders and emergency response teams.

    Climate Action Network – CAN, Puducherry

    Project Concept Note on Climate Change programme

    Project Name
    Capacity building of the community and rejuvenation of green cover

    Project Description

    1. Background
    The situation in Puducherry state and the neighboring Cuddalore and Villupuram districts in Tamil Nadu as far as climate change and global warming is concerned is an alarming state. The flow of tourists both inland and foreign and the international city Auroville in Villupuram district nearby has changed the traditional outlook of the community. The mixing of local and foreign culture and the settlement of a portion of the population in France has changed the outlook.

    The usage of fossil fuel run vehicles especially the motorcycles dominates the roads and hence the pollution from the smoke is very high. Most of the air and water polluting industries like liquor, heavy metals and food processing are located in Puducherry, Cuddalore and Villupuram. The hotels, hospitals and medical colleges also contribute their might in building up the solid waste and bio waste. In total the nullahs (channels) and the backwaters in Puducherry, Cuddalore and Villupuram have been contaminated with sewage and all sorts of solid wastes and there is no proper treatment plants.

    The farm lands get squeezed and the fishing in the back waters swindled due to the deforestation of the mangroves. Plastic materials dumped in the roadside and streets and the waste without segregation is burnt in the dumping ground, literally engulfing the villages nearby making the communities breathless and susceptible to all sorts of health disorders. The over usage of chemical fertilizers and pesticides have poisoned the already swindling water table. Electrical energy for the use of tungsten burning bulbs and polluting non green air conditioners make the problem the worse. In a nutshell the community is not aware of the effects of climate change and the global warming in the target areas.

    2. Problem
    Statement
    The community lacks knowledge on Climate change and Global warming and the adverse effects on their and their future generation lives. Unknown virus fevers, skin rashes, breathing troubles etc are daily occurrences and the total community is engulfed in smoke from industrial hazardous waste, poisonous effluents in the water bodies, dwindling farm output, low catches in the backwaters and sea, vanishing of traditional green covers, dwindling and endangered species etc with overall ill effects on health and livelihood.

    The community has to be educated on climate change effects on their lives and livelihood, the effects of carbon and green house gases etc. The existing green cover both at the coastal and inland areas should be protected and new green covers should be encouraged to ward of the ill effects and make the earth healthy.

    3. Project Rationale
    The Goal of the project is to sensitize the coastal fishing community, inland farming community and the school children and college students on Climate Change and Global Warming. The content of the project is to prepare IEC materials on Climate Change and Global Warming in local vernacular language and distribute the same to the target communities at the time of awareness campaigns through street plays and sensitization meetings.

    The stake holders will be educated on sustainable fishing and farming operations with eco and environment preservation and the importance of mangroves, coral reef and green cover. 32 Coastal villages and 128 farming villages, 156 schools and 12 colleges in the target area will be covered through the campaigns. Tree saplings will be distributed to the stake holders and eco green clubs will be formed in the target villages, schools and colleges. Ban plastics, minimum fossil fuel usage, promotion of renewable energy sources etc will be the additional main thrusts in the campaigns.

    4. Key Objectives  To strengthen the community’s capcity on green cover protection, promotion through awareness campaigns
     To educate the school, college students, teachers on climate change
     To sensitize the PRI members on the need for climate preservation, solid waste management
     To rejuvenate green cover through planting of traditional tree saplings
     To promote the preservation of the heritage groves
     To orient the community on alternates to plastics in day today use
     To facilitate lobbying for global protection measures

    5. Key Outputs • 32 Coastal villages’ communities would have gained good knowledge in eco and environment preservation.
    • The fishing community would have their capacity built up in sustainable fishing operations and preservation of mangroves as livelihood means and also the breeding ground for exquisite varieties like Prawn, Crabs etc.
    • The farming community in 128 agrarian villages would have gained knowledge in sustainable farming operations integrated with eco and environment protection and organic farming.
    • School children from 156 schools and college students from 12 colleges and teachers would have gained knowledge in eco and environment preservation.
    • The Government Officials and Allied System Personnel would have gained the much needed knowledge to implement the laws for preservation of the nature and green cover in letter and sprit.

    6. Project Activity Participatory Rural Appraisals will be done in the target area for enumerating the environment resources and their depleted nature at present. The bottom to top approach will be followed in identification, depleted resources calculation, needs for sustainable environment development etc. The IEC materials in local vernacular language Tamil will be prepared and distributed at the time of awareness campaigns through street plays and puppet shows and also at the sensitization meetings with the community, Government Department and Allied System personnel. Eco Green Clubs will be formed in the villages, schools and colleges and promotion of tree saplings planting to increase the green cover and also solid waste management etc. Proper feed backs from the target community on pre and post intervention periods will be collected. Linkages with Government Departments and Allied System will be built up for sustainability of the progarmme.
