          Supporting Poor Orphans through Vocational Training Project
          Background Overview
          Children Care Development Organization (CCDO) was founded in 2010 by a group of professional women’s seeking to solve the problem of poverty in the area with special attention to orphans and vulnerable children. It is located at Nduli village within Iringa municipality of Iringa Region in Tanzania. CCDO seeks to improve lives of poor people through vocational training skills, education and entrepreneurship skills.
          Project Aim
          To improve the living standards of people living in slums and marginalized areas of Iringa through educational, skills training and support.
          Specific Aims
          1. Training in entrepreneurial skills
          2. To run a youth center, and to run a Nursery, primary school
          3. To run vocational skills training's (metal fabrication, carpentry, tailoring, saloon, ICT)
          4. To promote community development, and to create a library
          5. To build a youth sport center and to run sport activities
          6. To construct recreation and business center (Cafeteria, Shops, Sport center, Information center)
          7. Film show center
          8. Provision of credit to those engaged in small scale business
          9. To improve the capacity of the staff of local NGOs and CBOs.
          10. To build orphanage workshop centre
          Project Objectives
          The overall objective of this project is to create an enabling environment for the youth of Iringa Municipality in Iringa region of Tanzania so that they can be self - dependent, contribute to the development of the area and be an active participant in development effort of the nation. Specific objectives are to inculcate entrepreneurial skills in the youth, to make youth self-employed, and initiate the youth to be engaged in sporting activities, small business (micro-credit revolving fund), vocational skills training, a didactic cinema, ICT enterprises and other similar innovative and creative projects.
          Statement of Problem
          In Iringa district there are more than 1000 orphans, aged between 3 and 15 years. The greater part of the orphans between the 3 and 15 years doesn’t have access to primary education; most of the families cannot afford the cost of school fees that cost on average between 200,000 and 250,000 Tshs per term. In the area there are no NGOs running free educational programs such as literacy programs and there none financed by the government. Without alternatives most of the children whose families cannot afford formal education try to get some money by, selling groundnuts on the road, collecting garbage or doing manicure. In the most extreme cases, girls start to be prostitutes at an early age of 12-13 years.
          In general nutrition is poor from the nourishing point of view: for breakfast the usual meal is cassava of maize or beans with tea, for lunch or dinner they usually eat posho, bananas, beans, cassava, rice, peanuts and fish.
          In the slum of Iringa, like in all the poor areas of Iringa municipality, unemployment is a common problem due to the lack of the space to create new activities, the high costs of rent for the existing shops and the limited possibility to have access to a bank loan. For these reasons a wide percentage of the people do not have just one job, or a fixed job, but they do more activities in order to be able to guarantee a minimum income to provide to the needs of the family. The persons interviewed in the area of the market report that the medium income is of 2500 Tanzanian shillings a day (one euro), with a variation that can go from a minimum of 500 to a maximum of 6.000 shillings. The medium salary is of 50700 Tanzanians shillings and can vary from 15000 to 180000 shillings. From this income depends the whole family that is composed at least of four persons. Indeed in the slum of Iringa the per capita income is of 11.500 shillings.

          Areas of Interventions
          CCDO is situated at Nduli village in Iringa Municipality of Iringa Region in Tanzania, in the periphery of Nduli airport area to approximately 15 kilometres from the Iringa city center. The area has a total population of approximately 151345 persons.
          Education: Only the 50% of the children of Iringa attend primary schools; the 39% of youngsters have been able to attend high school but only few among them have finished their education until the last level. The 11% of Iringa population is attending the literacy programs in CCDO.
          Nutrition: The majority of the families can provide at least a meal a day to each member but only the 80% of them can have an additional meal. The common meals are mainly composed by tea, cassava (local root), or posho (maize flour) with beans. Only 31% of the families can buy rice, potatoes or peanuts sauce. Very few of them can buy occasionally meat.
          Incomes: The medium income per family is of 145000 Tshs per month, (approximately 56 euros) and varies from 20000 Tshs to 250000. The familiar group is composed on average of 8 members; indeed the medium income per person is of 18000 Tshs per month. The main source of income is agriculture and animals breeding. Alternative sources of income can be: brick fabrication, sale of charcoal, tailoring and sale of cooked food.

          CCDO Contribution
          Workshop tools (120 sewing &knitting machines, welding machines, carpentry trade and workshop tools, farming tools, motor mechanics and garage tools, plumber and electrician tools, 50 computers ad farming tools)
          Project Activities
          Vocational skills training: CCDO will organize vocational training's for disadvantaged youth in the following skill areas: tailoring, carpentry, motor mechanics and garage, welding, electrician, mason, horticultural crops, hair dressing and beauty fashion, video making / photo making, and film production.
          Support HIV/AIDS affected families: CCDO will support 220 affected families whose children are already beneficiaries of the Centre. I
          Sports center Iringa: We plan to construct a sport facility that will include showers, dressing rooms, bathrooms, once meeting room, a field for soccer, one for volleyball and one for basketball
          1. Training for local NGOs
          The project plans to carry out staff training of local NGOs (CBOs) through seminars of two/three days on the following topics: human resources management, accountability, sustainability, project coordination, administration. The aim is to improve the management capacity and the organization of the local organizations. The planned number of beneficiaries is 10 persons/ seminar.
          1. Awareness meetings
          Once every month the main room will host sensitization and awareness meetings under the facilitation of professional and experienced trainers. The meetings will be followed by a discussion among the participants. The main topics will be: gender based violence, AIDS prevention, children rights, general health, life saving strategies. The planned number of beneficiaries is 50.
          1. Cinema
          For the children the multimedia activities constitute a leisure and fast instrument to learn new things. Through documentaries and cartoons, this activity will reach a greater number of children in order to facilitate learning in a leisure atmosphere.
          6. Computer facilities
          The center will offer the possibility of using computers facilities in order to: train local NCO staff and improve the quality of their administration, and acquire ICT skills for all the beneficiaries of the center. The planned number of beneficiaries: 100/year
          7. Library
          Two rooms of the center will host a library and a study room, in which students of all levels will have the possibility to deepen the knowledge acquired at school.
          Sustainability
          The start up capital given on credit basis will be profitable as the beneficiaries are engaged in trade of their interest. Using the profits they will undergo their business on their own capital. Their repayment shall be used to provide as credit for who are even outside the center. It revolves from one group of beneficiaries to other youngsters. By doing so the revolving fund is expected not only to benefit the first beneficiaries but also majority of youth who have zeal to be self – employed. The project in general is expected to reduce unemployment rate.

            Improving nutritional status of 1000 Days to Pregnancy and lactating women Project

            Introduction
            The Children Care Development Organization (CCDO) is a non-governmental Organization with legal registration No.ooNGO/00003818 made under the Tanzanian Non-Governmental Act 2002 made under section 12 (2) of Act No.24 of 2004. CCDO works to serve children through healthcare and food nutrition education particularly in poor marginalized rural areas where women pregnancy and widows are at high risk.
            Project Description
            This project will be located at Nduli village of Iringa district of Iringa Region in Tanzania. This project will work in Nduli and Isimani province of Iringa, targeted due to its high level of poverty through a range of direct interventions designed to improve the health care of undeserved groups. Substantial health promotion activities to enable poor people and their families to understand their health care needs and improve their coping strategies will also be implemented.
            Project Aims
            This project aims to reduce poverty for disadvantaged vulnerable women through activities designed to improve primary healthcare including sanitation and disease prevention so as to build capacity of health care providers, implement needs based activities and engage with government in planning, delivery and targeting health services. Furthermore the project addresses the cross-cutting issues of (1) gender equality by advancing woman’s status in the community that will greatly influence her healthcare seeking behaviour and thus have an influence on her pregnancy, and also through education to improve people’s understanding and women’s status and quality of life; (2) fight against HIV and AIDS by raising awareness of community people; and (3) integration of environmental questions through training and cooking demonstration will be introduced in a way that finding local nutritious food will not destroy the environment.
            Project Objective, Outputs and Expected Results
            The specific objective is to improve maternal and child health in 2 Operational provinces of Nduli and Isimani through improving nutritional status of 1000 Days to pregnancy and lactating women project initiatives. The expected results and outputs are:
            1. Strengthened capacity of our local non state actors working on primary health care to design and implement evidence-based health and nutrition interventions with quality. Six project staff trained in planning and reporting, project review meetings to engage in critical action learning and revise implementation of the action.
            2. Improved knowledge and practices of families with children (0-59 months) on appropriate hygiene, child feeding, and child caring
            3. Improved access to good quality health services and information for mothers and children under the age of 5.
            4. Improved household food security of families within targeted communities
            Problem Statement
            The public health care system in Tanzania is weak and its budget is one of the lowest in the region at $4.09 per capita (2019). The system is made up of provincial or operational district hospitals supported by health centres at the community level, but the health centres are rarely staffed with adequately qualified personnel, and typically provide little diagnostics and basic treatment only. In Tanzania nutrition problems are closely related to the poor general health status of the population. With many mothers working outside the home, grandmothers and siblings play important roles in childcare. Husbands are the major decision makers, but maternal grandmothers play an active role in decision-making with regard to health seeking behaviour, and women help manage the family finances. Newborns are given rice or sugar water until the breast milk comes in. Colostrum is sometimes considered “milk gone bad” and therefore discarded. The common traditional complementary food, a watery rice soup called “borbor”, is low in nutritional value. In some families vegetables and fruits are perceived as causing worms in the child and therefore avoided. Unhygienic and unsafe environments place children at risk. Ingestion of unsafe water, inadequate availability of water for hygiene, and lack of access to sanitation contributes to about 1.5 million child deaths and is a risk factor for 88% of diarrhea mortality. Other health-related behaviours, such as birth spacing and poor breastfeeding practices, are also important risk factors for child mortality. Women in rural areas continue to die in unacceptably large numbers during childbirth. Children are malnourished, particularly in provinces.
            Target Group and Final Beneficiaries
            This project will target two provinces of Nduli and Isimani of Iringa District which have high levels of infant and maternal mortality ratio in Tanzania. Final direct beneficiaries include 12,454 children under the age of five (5,741), pregnant mothers (3,644), post-partum mothers (2,679), health professionals (30), village health volunteers (180), traditional birth attendants (100) and 80 community leaders who will benefit from improving nutritional status of 1000 Days to pregnancy and lactating women District Project. This project will benefit 320 poor pregnancy and lactating women living with HIV/AIDS by having their capacity built both through direct institutional support and also through experience gained implementing work with CCDO in the target areas.
            Relevance of the proposal to the needs and constraints of the target country and target beneficiaries
            This action is designed to contributes to achieving the Ministry of Health’s Health Strategic Plan (HSP) 2020-2015 to ‘promote healthy lifestyles’, ‘make services more responsive and closer to the public’, prevent ‘selected chronic and non-communicable diseases’, and involve members of the community in improving community health and access to health services.
            Proposed Activities and their Effectiveness
            1. Training the project partners staff in health and nutrition interventions, working with operational provinces and healthcare providers, and establishing and working with volunteers and leaders in the communities
            2. Conducting training of Health Centre staff to provide them with the skills to train VHVs and TBAs as health care providers
            3. Providing training to project partners on monitoring and evaluation, including baseline surveys and final evaluations
            4. Holding regular management meetings between CCDO and GoodHands Alliance International partner to review progress, and identify problems and solutions.
            5. To build knowledge on optimal breast feeding practices by providing training on food preparation and counseling on infant and young child feeding to VHVs and volunteer mothers
            6. To build knowledge and skills of food preparation and feeding for children between 6-59 months by conducting communication activities to raise awareness on appropriate feeding practices with children under five and promoting cross-visits of mothers and volunteers for learning from each other
            7. To increase micronutrient intake through supplementation by providing inputs to HC to provide awareness on micronutrient supplementation and fortification (Vitamin A, Iron, de-worming, and Iodised salt) to community
            8. To improve rehabilitation of malnourished children by identifying and selecting village for implementing nutrition assessment and providing nutrition training to selected HC staff, VHVs, TBAs, and volunteer mothers
            9. To improve access of families to good quality services, supplies and information for the prevention and treatment of malaria, especially for the pregnant and post-partum mothers and children below five years of age by distributing Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Net (LLIN) to eligible pregnant women and families with children under five
            10. To improve health seeking behavior for mother/caregiver with children under five who have Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) symptoms by supporting community health education on ARI through VIDEO shows and raising awareness to community on dangerous sign and symptoms of ARI disease
            11. To increase knowledge and practices on management and prevention of diarrhea by providing ORS package and zinc tablet to HC distributing of ORS package and raising awareness on diarrhea prevention and management among community through community health education and IEC materials
            12. To improve access and quality of antenatal and postnatal services and information by supporting HC staff to conduct outreach activity and provide Iron to pregnant women and to postpartum mother
            13. To increase production and consumption of vegetable and fruit sources of families by raising awareness on consumption's of variety of vitamin rich vegetables and fruits through ongoing community interactions and special events
            Other stakeholders
            The key stakeholder at the village level is the village leaders, commune councils, VHVs, TBAs and other volunteers. The role of the local and provincial authorities (VDCs, commune councils, Provincial Health Department and Health Centers) will be to include community people’s views and needs in their planning and budgeting processes, as well as to improve the delivery of services in the target villages.
            Project Sustainability
            Improving nutritional status of 1000 Days to pregnancy and lactating women project will provide an opportunity for CCDO operational province levels to work more closely with the priorities outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The efforts to strengthen various national programs, especially health and nutrition for improving nutritional status of 1000 Days to pregnancy and lactating women program will contribute to longer-term sustainability of these critical interventions in the project areas. CCDO will work with local non state actors, MOH partners in supervision, monitoring and evaluation.

                Supporting Tanzanian Orphans Girls on Vocational Training in Response to COVID – 19 Report
                In Tanzania, our Orphans Girls Project is helping girls into vocational training to help them set up their own businesses. Among the more than 3,700 girls who have benefited from bursaries for secondary schooling or vocational training, several are now employed to make protective face masks to combat the spread of COVID -19. Orphans Girls Project supports girls in education and training across three pathways. While the main pathway focuses on enabling girls to transition from primary to secondary school, and the second seeks to help out-of-school girls to re-enroll and catch up, the third and final pathway supports girls in their transition from either primary or catch-up education to vocational training and apprenticeships. Over 400 girls to date have benefited from the Children Care Development Organization (CCDO) bursary fund for this third pathway, enabling them to undertake vocational training in the fields of tailoring and embroidery, sewing COVID -19 masks, carpentry, welding, computers, creative arts and painting, garage and motor mechanics, green vegetable cultivation, film production and recording.
                This report was aimed to inform the change of undesirable condition of orphan girls working on the streets and cannot obtain formal education, to a desirable condition where street girls have a safe place to develop, gain formal education and training, and is less vulnerable to sexual abuse, beatings, addiction and other social threats. A safe place provided for street girls to attend educational and vocational skills.
                The areas of intervention of this project are located in Iringa and Kilolo Districts where slum areas are characteristically.

                Formal education
                The life of street children especially of those sleeping in the streets at night is very dangerous. Street children are socialized to be vulnerable. The environment for the street children makes them more susceptible for human trafficking, poses a greater risk for committing crimes or being a victim of a crime, exposes them to greater risk for substance abuse, and puts females at risk of being forced to do sexual acts. There are around 75,000 children living on the streets of Iringa today. There are several reasons for this: poverty, lack of education, limited alternatives, and parents dying from the HIV/AIDS epidemic, their relatives unable to support them or their families needing them to work to supplement income and help put food on the table. CCDO decided to reduce this problem by supporting formal education to orphans 3-14 by helping them to attend and acquire formal education, firstly by supporting their mothers (widows) in the girl’s mother program secondly by providing material support like school uniform for those who are studying in community schools and proving scholarship to children who are studying in CCDO pre and primary school (Peace flame). 194 total number children supported in this program . 34 are in pre primary the schools, 61 are primary school children and after complete their primary education and 54 joined in CCDO youth training center and 45 joined secondary education where CCDO supporting their education. During holiday children have time to stay together, good time for sporting and game and acquire different skills depending on their age including ICT, learn how to garden, how to raise chickens, and how to make crafts in the youth training Centre.
