We provide education opportunities to empower children to participate in society once they grow up. We also support to increase the quality of education through capacity building of educational facility staff, teachers and parents.
We work to improve the basic health of children and youth and maternal health. We provide the nutrition support, awareness and training sessions for the community including pregnant mothers and infants/toddlers. Also we provide the medical personnel and pharmaceutical support to enhance the capacity of health facilities to help them provide the quality of services.
We work to improve community health through clean water and a hygienic environment. We provide support to increase access to WASH facilities and the quality of services. Also, we help the community to enhance their capacity to maintain the WASH facilities and their knowledge on WASH through various trainings.
We work to improve a sustainable income generating system and community capacity for disaster and resource management by providing support for youth literacy, improved understanding of asset management, job seeking and entrepreneurship.
Humanitarian Aid is to save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain and protect human dignity during and in the aftermath of man-made crises and natural disasters. Our Humanitarian aid consists of emergency relief, early and long-term recovery, refugee assistance, disaster risk reduction (DRR) and child protection. Especially, we establish Child Centered Spaces (CCS) and provide psycho-social support to children to overcome trauma during the emergencies.
Meanwhile, we have contributed to the inclusion of a child protection agenda in the SDGs 16.2 through the global campaign “Free from Violence and Exploitation”. We have also raised social and cultural awareness on child rights in community.
We empower communities to attain necessary resources and capabilities for the development of their own communities in the area of education, health, WASH(water, sanitation and hygiene), Livelihood, Child Protection and Humanitarian Response.
