The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. The SDGs are part of Resolution 70/1 of the United Nations General Assembly, the 2030 Agenda.
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.
