Progetto-Sololo; ecco il pensiero dei collaboratori locali …
1- There is no organization operating in the area to support orphans and vulnerable families
2- Sololo project has been supporting over 100 families and 1000 beneficiaries directly and indirectly .
3- The project is in the process of making some of the families self sufficient. So far 49 families exited translating to over 300 children according to Database. This is done after they have moved from risk level.
4- About 13 children have been exited from Obbitu children home to the levels of secondary education hence on the process of realizing their potentials which in turn will also graduate their families from poverty.
5- We have some good students who are moving on the right direction and will put a smile on our face as the project . … They will help as to write a new chapter and success story for sololo project. In this case I suggest if we help them to achieve their objectives.
I was trying to tell you that Sololo project are the pioneers of the success we are expecting in the coming years
Despite of economic ups and downs in the running of this project, I can confidently say so far we are going on the right direction with the guidance from the donors. We must be proud of the level we have reach.
If we look at the interest of an individual the project will loose its focus and at the same time everybody should see the future of this project as that ouch their life directly, the success of the project is the success for all of us. Personally I love my job and I have seen success of the project and hope to see more in near future.
Some of the success im realizing are: Sololo project has been assisting its beneficiaries on .
Food and Nutrition. This is mainly food donation and supplementary feeding
Shelter and Care– this are shelter repair, shelter construction, provision of household items and personal effect for the children.
Education- payment of school fees for the secondary students,
– Quality education by taking the children to academy
– Reward scheme to promote competition among students
– Provision of school uniform,stationary and textbooks
– Provision of solar kit for class 8 and form fours student for revision
– Follow up on enrollment ,retention and transition to next level.
– Provide counseling on the importance of education and career development.
Health – Provide health education and hygiene practices
– Enroll all caregivers to Health insurance services
– Conduct health assessment of all children bi annually and make follow up on malnutrition and underweight.
– Conduct HIV testing and counseling for all beneficiaries and also new enrollment thereafter do the necessary referrals on the event of abnormality.
… all this is what the project are currently doing and its done in the best interest of the target beneficiaries who are OVCs and who still have not realized their potentials but in line to reach their Objectives. I say Sololo project is a Call of Nature that has come into being to make the vulnerable community in the society to achieve their object who otherwise remain neglected and become street families. And in long run may create class of haves and have not.(those have will live a good life and those have not will live miserable life)
“I therefore advice all of us in the sololo project, let us not kill our dreams prematurely” focus on how to achieve our set goals and objectives.
“When children are happy we are also happy!!”
Let our interest not remain as priority but serving the children first any other things later.
