Partnering with Redditch Night Stop

The charity is now celebrating its 20th year in operation and the nature and extent of the charities work is now very different to that even a few years ago. The charity has out grown its current space and now needs a larger base from which to operate from. Fairway Training are delighted to asist in providing funding to acheive this goal.

The charity is not just about providing emergency and longer term accommodation for young people, but helps to pro-actively address the challenging personal circumstances of young people by providing support and developing skills.

SAVING YOUNG LIVES THROUGH CHILD PROTECTION TRAINING

MAGDALENA, COLOMBIA

ORGANISATION: COMPASSION UK

Commencement date June 2017

The department of Magdalena, located on the northern coast of Colombia, is ranked as the fifth most poverty-stricken department in Colombia. Sexual exploitation often occurs in the poorest communities, where violence and abuse are common and where dysfunctional and fragmented families feel powerless to prevent it and have become de-sensitised to its impact. 

 

The proposed activity is a 12 month training programme which will target 2,538 caregivers and 2,538 children aged 6 and below in the 26 child development centres in Magdalena. Workshops and seminars will be held to disseminate information; children will be taught about self-care and self-esteem among other values, and parents and guardians will be provided with information on the harm and risks of child sexual abuse, as well as education on how to recognise and report cases, and how to prevent them from happening in the future. There will be three phases to this intervention, all of which will take place with the support of the local churches.

EAST JAVA, INDONESIA

ORGANISATION: COMPASSION UK

The Lights of Love Child Development Centre located in Malang – East Java have been implementing Compassion’s holistic child development programme for the last 22 years. At the project there are three 3 x3 metre classrooms, one dining room, a kitchen and a library. The classrooms are overcrowded and get very hot, noisy and uncomfortable for the children making it difficult to learn and engage effectively.

This project is to construct a new building with five rooms consisting of three classrooms, a computer room and a library. Additionally the rooftop will be used for an aquaponics system (an integrated system of hydroponics and fish farming).

KITCHEN & STOREROOM CONSTRUCTION
TOGO, WEST AFRICA

ORGANISATION: COMPASSION UK

TG-133 Centre de Development des Enfants La Grace des AD Vo-Koutim
TG-622 Centre de Development des Enfants KADES Lagbanou
TG-705 Centre de Development La Grace de Masse Kope

Completed June 2016

The health of registered children and their families is one such priority. Although RESPOND Initiatives which provide treatment for existing health conditions are on-going, Compassion has adopted a preventative approach to health. This means that the majority of health-related initiatives are proactive, often involving improvements in infrastructure and education campaigns.

This RESPOND Initiative therefore aims to construct hygienic kitchens and storerooms at three rural projects in Togo, in order to reduce incidences of hygiene-related and waterborne illnesses experienced by 602 Compassion-assisted children and 44 adults.

KITCHEN CONSTRUCTION
SHINYANGA REGION, TANZANIA

ORGANISATION: COMPASSION UK

Visited by Andrew Shirley, Sheena Shirley, Liz Johns and Jane Hodgetts, June 2015

Shinyanga student centre and AICT student centre were facing common challenges in the successful implementation of the holistic child development programme. The main challenge was inadequate kitchen facilities.

The previous kitchen facilities were temporary sheds constructed by project staff and therefore did not have sound drainage systems or equipment. This initiative aimed to improve food preparation and establish good hygiene practices in the two projects through the construction of modern kitchens and proper sewerage systems.
