Improved school conditions in Grand Lagon
The Grand Lagon project focused on improving child learning conditions by providing school furniture to five schools, which were in poor condition. Training was also provided to 29 kindergarten school teachers.
During the last six months, 225 adolescents have learnt about child rights – this means that children become more aware of some of the rights they should be enjoying, such as education and the right to play, as well as the right to be cared for and protected.
Why Youth Clubs are important in our projects
Youth clubs are an effective way for the projects to engage with youth – if you don’t make it interesting they won’t show up. So by creating these clubs, the project has been able to reach 500 youth in the last 6 months through recreational and educational activities to engage them in important issues of their concern such as child protection and child rights.
In the PACODES project, eight schools were provided with school materials and furniture and 24 teachers were trained to improve the quality of education.
800 children attending World Vision Children’s clubs
In a similar way to the youth clubs in the Grand Lagon project, the PACODES project has been able to reach 800 children through children’s clubs to engage them in educational and recreational activities, and at the same time, raising their awareness on child rights.
For me, it’s really encouraging to see such a high participation of youth where we can engage them in activities that build their awareness of their rights and provide them with a greater opportunity to become advocates for children and youth in these communities.
We’re looking forward to seeing how the teacher training and new resources have impacted the children’s performance in these schools in the next year. It has only been possible because of supporters like you, thanks for your support.
