About The Project

YOUTH CHAPERON UGANDA plans to undertake a 4-year project within this slum community to help and improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children through access to basic needs and make them understand their challenges, causes and effects of challenges posed by this analysis. The project will actively pursue and address issues of education, healthcare and accommodation with the aim of contributing towards poverty eradication and national development. Guided by the logic that healthcare and education is development and development is education and healthcare, the project will strive to improve the education and healthcare arena of orphans and vulnerable children within Uganda through access to basic needs and carrying out advocacy on the same.

The project will strive to bring to the forefront orphans and vulnerable children’s concerns to Governmental and Regional bodies with the hope of influencing policies that mainstream basic needs. The project has institutionalized a Partners Education Forum, comprising of religious leaders, local council heads, community chiefs, head teachers and other stakeholders within these areas in order to engage and identify truly moderate and critical vulnerable children outside the home in order to reach the intended objective. This will also help the project to be owned by the community.

Strategies

The organization will adopt the following strategies in implementing the orphan and vulnerable children education project.

Facilitation

In line with the overall objective of YOUTH CHAPERON UGANDA, the project will facilitate implementing partners. These partners shall include the religious leaders, village leaders and head teachers. The objective of facilitation as a strategy is that it guarantees ownership by the community and sustainability of development work. This approach helps local communities and other development stakeholders to practice participatory methodologies to development building, building education and Medicare on the community’s knowledge systems and structures. It is an approach that cannot be easily penetrated by politician’s eager to derail education and health progress at the community level.

Through facilitation process the communities will be called upon to identify the problems leading to great number of orphans and vulnerable children, suggest solutions and implement recommendations at their level. The project will work through a process where interested partners are made to sign an agreement, before implementing an activity. The partner shall be required to develop terms of the reference, to account for funds provided and provide proof of actual activities carried out and give an assessment of the achievement, in any of the activity carried out.

Direct implementation

Most of the activities shall be implemented by Project staff, due to the need for more specialized facilitation. Monitoring and evaluation to enable the tracking on the project progress and to sustainability.
