Shelter Youth: Addressing the mental health needs of young children in a critically underserved population

Governamental

 

We intend to create a mental health program for students living in the New York City System for Temporary Housing (STH)-e.g. the shelter system. Such students have usually suffered a major loss or sustained physical/emotional trauma that places them at high risk for mental health disorders and educational delays.

Mobile Schools: Basic Education for Pastoralist Communities in North Eastern Province, Kenya

 

This mobile school initiative aims to increase access to education for children over 7 years old through the provision of culturally and religiously appropriate basic education to children who would otherwise find it difficult to access formal education. Structures are temporary and materials portable so they can be easily transported by camel as communities travel in search of water and pasture.

CHAJAMMY BRILLIANT EDUCATION CENTRE (offering early childhood) AND MASTER EDUCATION CENTRE(Primary Level)

The Chajammy Brilliant eduation centre belongs to my sister Charity Muthoni situated at the surbubs of Nairobi in a place called Gachie in Kihara. My sister started this centre 2 yrs ago with only 7 very young children. The centre has now grown from 7- 70 children and she offers early childhood education. She is a trained early chilhood teacher and what made her develop this interest is because of the many women who used to knock at her door asking for some domestic work to do. Since she was very kind she offered to give the work and she could look after the kids of such women.

THE INFORMED YOUTH MINISTRY

The informed youth ministry is a non governmental organisation with a vision of creating awareness among the youth issues that may hinder there successful progress in life. The ministry aims at creating a clear information flow from the people that are informed like the professionals and experiened people to the youth that need this information for their personal development. There is a lot of information that the youth requires to make progresive changes, overcome challenges, be focused and determined, make choices and learn preventive measures so as to have a bright future.

The project is called EDUSERVE RSE. It serves to train farm teachers to empower them to educate pre-school farm children, so that these children are well-prepared to start school.

My wife has written a Montessori pre-school course in Afrikaans for ladies on farms who take care of farm pre-school children. The course is over 6 months, which enables the teachers to implement each section in a sustainable way. Subjects are Fine Motor Co-ordination, Art/Music, Child Development, Sensorial, Maths/Language and Gross Motor Co-ordination. She visits each school once a month to support the teachers and keep the standard high. Farm pre-school children are greatly disadvantaged and her training ensures that they are school ready.

Family Literacy Project

The Family Literacy Project s(FLP) started in 2000 in response to findings that showed that the literacy scores of pre-school children were not improving, despite government interventions in the ECD sector.  We started showing parents how to build their children's early literacy skills through play and reading.  Today we combine adult literacy, early learning and literacy, libraries and health in a holistic approach to early learning and literacy. We use the REFLECT approach to adult literacy, and the household and community component of the Integrate
