BAVEEKO BASOME means “to get off and let them learn”. Most of the children were left in extreme deprivation and vulnerability with some seeking abode on the streets. The BAVEEKO BASOME was established especially intended to improve the health, welfare and quality of life of street children, former street children, orphans and Other Vulnerable Children.
We undertake the following programmes; behavioral change, recreational activities, adolescent reproductive health rights, community and street outreach and vocational training with emphasis on ICT. Our target is to provide support to an estimated 30 children in vocational training initially and an estimated number of 200 for the outreach and drop in programmes. The vocational training programme is geared towards orphaned and ex-street children who are under the care of various affiliate organisations who will be transported to and from our center.
The implementing period of the project will be 4 years, there after the board shall decide whether to make it ongoing or not. The cost of the project is $ 81,782 in the first year of operations.
The BAVEEKO BASOME is quite unique as we have integrated the use of ICT in solving community problems. We have planned a vocational ICT training programme for ex- street children.
In 2005, the Project Director was selected among 20 international fellows by the Youth Action Net/ IYF youth leading change around the world.
We have the capacity to use the requested funds responsibly and effectively because of the well articulated programmes. Also we have assembled a team to move this cause forward, coupled with various financial management resources and an advisory committee with a wealth of experience in this regard.
Your investment will complete the funding we need to fully implement this project, and we are excited about the prospect of partnering with you. Thank you for taking your time to read about us.
