Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
Football for hope project has been able to turn possible into impossible life of street children where 525 young people who were struggling on the streets of Burera,Cyanika,Gatuna and Byumba cities.We have created 15 clubs and these clubs have got microcredits from Burera volunteers for development association and now they have started income generation activities such rabbits and sheep rearing,maize and beans cultivation,More than 50% of them have returned to schools while others are in vocational training and currently,they can not have the problems of food,shelter,school fees,etc.In addition,we have organize HIV/AIDS activities among them and now they are skilled on HIV/AIDS prevention.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
Currently,525 street children have abandoned that stress full and struggling life and now they are generating incomes as we explained above.In addition,we have organized 34 football tournaments in our 4 cities,at which we have organized and conducted HIV/AIDS prevention teaching sessions,media and radio campaigns,theatres,video screenings and these activities have attracted so many people because we have had more than 300 beggars and other thousands young people equipped with HIV/AIDS prevention,transmission,treatment and care.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
In our project,we are using football tournaments in order to attract so many young people because in Rwanda,young people like football matches.In addition,the video screenings,theatres are also the activities which attract them.Our vision is to target 1850 street children who are living in the street lives in our cities and these future generation will be taught on HIV/AIDS prevention while many of them will be given a chance to start small income generation or business start up.We want to turn the street children life into bright future life so that they can get education,basic needs,etc.
