I miminori residenti nell’OBBITU-Villaggo, trasorreranno le vacanze scolastiche presso le famiglie della propria comunità.
Alla luce delle esperienze maturate durante questi primi anni di vita dell’Obbitu Villagio e in accordo con l’Ufficiale Governativo per la protezione dei minori e con il Comitato di Gestione, la Direzione (MT) del “Progetto-Sololo” ha deciso che i minori residenti nell’Obbitu Villaggio possano trascorrere parte delle loro vacanze scolastiche presso le famiglie del loro villaggio di origine che accettino di accoglierli.
Questa scelta, applicata per la prima volta in modo sperimentale, è finalizzata alla migliore integrazione del minore nella sua comunità, al fine di rendere il meno traumatico possibile il suo futuro e ineluttabile reinserimento sociale comunitario.
… school will be closing on 4/4/2019. we have planned to release the children on Saturday the 6th of April. as part of the planning we shall conduct our OVC management committee meeting on 4th tomorrow.
I have fears of unknown about the behaviours of children and their mingling with other members of the community. we have been supported by Mathew’s daughter Diramu to advice and gave motivational talks to children and to girls especially. the girls did like the talk.
we shall advice the child and the care giver during one on one talk with them on the day of permission. every evening i will reinforce the motivational talk until they will go on permission. otherwise we shall expect the best and also accept the consequences
another issue is for Q. who is on ARVs, the grandfather know her status but taking drugs under supervision and regularly will be my worries. all in all this is a process that we shall have to go through and also learn from it. as i earlier communicated Abdi will do monitoring visits.
… yesterday 6th of April, we had a meeting with relatives and children, we had common lunch with relatives. we also sensitized them on the objective of allowing children for holiday permission. they relatives and children were all happy and loved the moment.
they will come back on Saturday 20th of April and have lunch with us in obbitu.
the 6 children who were left all stay together in house 2. mother caretaker and helper were granted part of their 2 weeks annual leave.
… this evening we took H.S. to Wayegoda to introduce him to the relatives. we consulted them earlier and assessed their level of acceptance. they accepted him, we gave 2kg of sugar with 2 pkts of tea leaves as a gesture of Halkano’s official visit to his relatives. he is back in Obbitu children and we hope they will bond gradually.
