CHENNAI (MADRAS) - Domingo 17 Outubro 2021 - Child ambassadors for Oct 17th

Conte-nos como foi o evento

Our small ngo conducted a brief survey among children on how poverty plays role in their lives and near and
dear ones.
Here are the findings
57 children were taken for study
The survey is basic & Layman approach.
Oct 17th poverty eradication day,  our small ngo, conducted a ground level survey on the subject Poverty removal.   We selected children from our ngo and others who are in the pangs of povertySeriousness. Our study was conducted on a lay man’s approach , the findings are just the tip of the iceberg,  lots more needs to be done . Covid was a big monstrous dragon that unleashed its wrath on everyone. Loss of job and home was very prevalent, debts was rising like heated mercury. Our ngo was feeding the children and their families with dry rations and cooked food to the level possible, some of the children were tempted , yet yielded to child labor which was painfully inevitable. Sadly many girl children families opted for child weddings too, however it was stopped. Some families opted to end their lives with interventions and counseling that was mitigated.
Here are two stories of children who wish to remain anonymous

Ms. aged about 14, girl student, best in her studies and games.  She wished to become a pediatrician against any odds.   Her family was affected by covid,  however she survived and was placed in foster care till her parents recovered fully.  The second part of the sad story is the covid recovered parents were bewildered with the huge debts of job loss and no future to face.  It was like a sinking ship,  options were to at least get the daughter married , which would help the situation.  Knowing the fact we intervened and helped the family and advised not to take such steps which would be disastrous.  We got a job for the father and mother works too., sooner the children would go to school as it reopens.

Mr. aged about 15, boy, excellent in studies, He wanted to become an  marine diver ,  Covid has cost the life of his father and without income the mother and siblings were in a bleak situation.  Regretfully the situation tempted him to child labor, However we intervened got a job for his mother and phone for him to continue his schooling via webinars.  He is encouraged and presently looking forward to the reopening of the school
There are many sad stories which we were able to help and cases which we were unable to help.
Hopefully this would become resilience to us and the community we serve.

Mbeya City and Dar Es Salaam - Domingo 17 Outubro 2021 - OKTOBA 17, SIKU YA KIMATAIFA YA KUTOKOMEZA UMASIKINI

Conte-nos como foi o evento

We came back from Mbeya on the 18th. We celebrated October 16th on 16 because 17 was a Sunday, a worship day.   The celebration took place at Nuru Orphanage Centre. We started the day by doing community work, that is washing children's clothes, cleaning the environment of the centre, cleaning and unclogging toilets and ditches, after we came together ATD members, invited guests, orphanage workers and the children for the real celebration. The description of the day was given by an ATD member and testimonies from children, center workers and ATD members were given. The children sang and we danced together with the children to their songs and the culture drum rhythms from a local culture group. Then we had a meal together with the children. In brief, a very memorable day for all who attended, a very touching and happy day for the children and everyone who attended. The communication committee will send the pictures of the whole event. That was in Mbeya. In Dar es salaam, we will celebrate on the 24th.

Descrição do evento

This year there will occur events in Mbeya city on saturday 16th, in another  Dar on October 24th.

Some informations exist in kiswahili in this page on the attached files.

Pour le 17 Octobre de cette année, entre autres choses, vous trouverrez traduits du français vers le kiswahili des points de repères sur ce qu'est et n'est pas la journée. L'idée est de pouvoir le partager avec de nouveaux amis comme à Mbeya où se tiendra un événement samedi 16/10.

Nous l'utiliserons aussi pour l'événement du 24/10 à l'Alliance française de Dar. C'est davantage un outil de travail avec des partenaires qu'un outil de communication.
