盧安達Luanda

1994年的盧安達大屠殺震驚全世界,近百萬人死亡,有二十多萬兒童成為孤兒,曾被稱為「嗚咽大地」的盧安達浴血重生,如今兒童已長大成人,但傳染性疾病帶來嚴峻挑戰,仍有許多孤兒身處逆境。在盧國的胡圖族人唯恐遭報復而大量湧向薩伊,造成難民潮。
我們參與當地組織ASASS 志願服務,為無家可歸的兒童(因內戰、愛滋病、棄養)提供孤兒院、庇護所、醫療保險、教育及法律援助,他們是弱勢中的弱勢,同時提供社區學校(CS),幼兒教育培訓計畫,建立教室、以提升掃盲率,讓醫療與教育成就未來的希望。
A project Orphanage Center on Child Care, Education and Development source and care for the homeless and impoverished orphan' s children in Burundi (many due to war, AIDS, rejection), who are in need of care--shelter, legal aid, medical insurance, and education. When children lose their parents to war and or illness like AIDS, a relative generally takes in the child and cares for them. When no relative is able to care for a child, they are forced to live on the street and for that child, all hope is lost. Life is hard enough for a child in Burundi, but with no one to care for them; they are the poorest of the poor. Poverty in childhood is a root cause of miseries with different effects in adulthood. An Orphanage Center is important to those groups.
Community Schools (CS) projects are a training program for teachers and education of children from an early age. We build classrooms and learn more about ASASS' kindergarten schools. The plan is to add new classrooms each year until we reach to university levels. Our program reaches to over 200 orphans and disadvantaged children, particularly minorities, retuming refugees, orphans and young girls supported in 3 schools while the education long-term goal is to support more than 1,000,000 disadvantaged children per year to go to school by buying them school materials offering them with good classrooms, higher qualified teachers and quality learning materials and resources with great system of School management.

 

蒲隆地

蒲隆地是全世界第三最窮國家,歷經十二年的血腥內戰,這受長期幾荒、食物短缺、疾病蔓延之苦,有73.4%居民瞥養不良,46%兒童更欠缺維生素A、失明比例居高不下,我們參與當地組織ASASS)志願服務,以「Lifes for Life」計畫向診所、學校、孤兒院、教堂等據點提供營養補充劑、並建立社區醫療服務中心(KCHC),幫助免疫接種(EPI)、改善孕產婦和兒童保健(MCH),及篩查糖尿病、愛滋病、子宮頸癌等治療,致力改善居民健康及壽命。
73.4% of Burundi's population is undernourished and 46% of all children are deficient in Vitamin A and become blind every year, half of them dying within 12 months of losing their sight.
These problems have been caused by a combination of poor education, lack of resources and lack of food security. Foods for Life aims to prevent this.
It aims to stop a growing number of Burundians from becoming diabetics and malnourished by providing them with education, treatment and supplying nourishment at ASASS health clinics, schools and in villages centres such as orphanages and churches.
We have partnered with a provider of food supplements (E'Pap), which will help to address malnourishment deficiencies. These supplements can be delivered to schools, health and community centres. In these centres, we can provide education on not only how to prevent diabetes and vitamin A deficiency, but also on how to cope with it.

 

坦桑尼亞 
 

百廢待興的坦桑尼亞,居民普遍教育水平不高,入學率在東非甚至整個非洲均處於較低比例,坦尚尼亞2001年高等教育僅為0.27%,甚至少数民族、貨困孤兒及難民更是被完全排除在外。為了提升公平的受教權、增進大學預科教育,以及強化工作技能,我們參與當地組織ASASS志願服務,推勁「JOCEKI大學基金會」,縮短弱勢生與學校的距離,發展學校貸款及獎學金,預防學生輕學,並透過職業培訓、生涯教練等具體方式,為學生建造網絡,並建立一個安全的環境,鼓勵學員討論重要卻被傅統視為禁忌的話题,例如愛港病、計盡生育、殘疾就業、家庭暴力等議题,探討解決方案,為社區带來積極行勁。

University Foundation (UF) is very important for the generations and the nations.The poor level of education of people in Burundi and the low attendance to the tertiary education levels are two main routes of poverty, the conflicts, and human right violence. Insufficiency of higher education infrastructures makes children walk for a long distance,which makes them drop out school. Also, higher education is not affordable to the most vulnerable children - minorities, indigent or orphans, and refugees - lead to total exclusion. University Foundation is a solution; it seeks to reduce the distance to schools, to develop student loans and scholarships to prevent students from dropping out. It aims to improve access to quality education at all levels and produce qualified human resources to work not only in ASASS programmes but also serve the countries. Through scholarships, student loans.

 

肯亞

非洲最大的貧民區正位於肯亞,包括Kalyaba、Njenga和LungaLunga,高危治安、愛滋病、毒品、搶劫等暴力事件讓困境雪上加霜。貨民區愛港死亡率極高,導致孤兒超過肯亞人口的四分之一。我們參與在地基金會KAMANEH志願服務,該組織自1997年成立,透過深耕貨民社區據點的方式,以民眾可負携之醫療保健服務,預防懷孕、分娩的併發癞,改普孕婦及新生兄的健康,致力降低愛淡病毒褒延、降低肯亞母要的死亡率。

我們參與當地組鐵ASASS志願服務,推動「鄉村貸款和儲蓄國體」(VLSG)系列計畫,通過小額信貸、培訓合作社來確保可持續生計,為貧射線下的家庭創造收入,尤其幫助家暴受害者、瀕危青年、難民寡婦和殘疾人士。同時建造社區發展中心(CDC)讓居民學習栽链、烹飪、手工品、種植農作物、創建產品與銷售技能,定制培訓課程及法律援助,以提高就業率、降低社會治安危機。

Each family adopts 3 children and they learn how to grow foods (rice, cabbage, fruits, and vegetables), and management of a restaurant venture.

 

阿塞拜疆 

阿塞拜疆地處大高加索山脈以南,有豐富的天然資源,在歷史上有過多次與亞美尼亞人間的種族清洗戰爭,並因蘇聯解體而導致政經勁亂,現代雖因石油開採重振國家經濟,然而在發展的背后,資源份配不均,使得許多年輕人對未來感到待徨。我們參與歐亞聯盟基金會(EPF)志願服務,推勁「夢想實驗室」(Dream Lab),促進弱勢群體的社會經濟機利,提供個別諾詢、社會網絡、培訓計盡、導師制度、講座活勁、資助計盡等方式,引領積極楚革,共同改變社會。

奈及利亞

在奈及利亞,有5700萬人無法獲得安全、乾淨的水資源,導致女性處境更加弱势,大量時間折騰汲水,追論受教育及就業,整體健康不佳、教育水平低,就業楼會差,陷入货窮的惡性循環。

In Nigeria, 57 Million People do not have access to safe, clean water. Unsafe Water and lack of sanitation trap women and girls in a circle of ill health, poor education, poor career opportunities, overall poverty and even early death.Collecting water makes it difficult for girls to attend school and work, and this holds women back from achieving what they want from life. Poor sanitation makes adolescent girls and women' s lives fraught with dangers ranging from being attacked whilst using unsafe outdoor toilets to dying from childbirth--related infections caused by poor hygiene.Lack of water and basic sanitation facilties have made menstrual hygiene management difficult, thereby making adolescent girls in school ages stay away from school during their period.

PHAAE team are staunch campaigners for sustainable change and thereby recruits and trains health and hygiene promotion volunteers, also builds the skills and knowledge of local people through education and communication programmes, empower elementary school children on handwashing best practices and good hygiene behaviour, because believe Children are strong agents of change.In terms of the aids PHAAE gives, we deliver water taps and toilets to communities and schools in desperate need.
