To achieve our mission, our organization uses an empowerment methodology approach that address the emotional, psycho social, educational and economic needs of targeted children. The first phase tackle the isolation and rights of children by integrating them into their community and by creating a psycho - social group in which they can gain peer psychosocial and economic support, Children learn life skills from others in their community, Educating them about their rights is crucial in enabling them to speak out about violations. Phase 2 of the program focuses more deeply upon financial independence and food security through income generation both at home and as part of a group. By providing beneficiaries with the resources and knowledge to initiate their own projects based on dream drawing as a family plan. Phase 3 of action sees the gradual end of project support to households and groups. This final stage assists working groups to become legal cooperatives and autonomous.
The ultimate goal of the organization is to build the capacity of the beneficiaries to the point at which they are self-sustainable and no longer need the support of organization.
