REGAINING INDEPENDENCE IN AN ASSISTED LIVING ENVIRONMENT Our partner association was established through the initiative of a group of friends who decided to create places of shared living which allow the disabled individual to live with friends and family. These informal settings include meals prepared and shared together, social activities and celebrations (cultural, recreational and sporting...) In 2010, the first shared home was opened in Vanves, a town just outside Paris. After the success of the first shared home, groups of “companions” in association with our partner established homes in ten other cities in France. Our partner organisation helps to structure these projects, giving the groups technical and financial support in order to create their own shared homes. Our partner association shared Home is upheld as a societal project based on the “art of shared living” between both disabled and able-bodied individuals. It is a testimony to the idea that trust and community arise when people come together in a time of need.

Background: This project was Initiated since 2006 by cooperation with NOVIB IDO which concerned in the prevention of STI and HIV/AIDS in Tegalrejo and Sukosari the two prostitution areas in Semarang uptown. After this pilot project, this project turns to focus more on the education especially highlighting the mental side of the children in the prostitution.

Project: Tegalrejo project at moment is the follow up of workcamps that regularly organized between IIWC and NICE Japan by setting up a shelter. This shelter is used for children to learn their school subject and to gain soft skills such as handicraft, dance, singing, etc assisted by volunteers. This year we start to set up international group to support this project and make it better in the future. Aims: 1. To promote or introduce the shelter among the local youth or students nearby 2.

The whole educational work is done by pupil’s parents, teachers, educators and volunteers altogether. The objective is to make sure the youth is in the best conditions to experience in a positive way his abilities. Thus, the youth feels empowered because he realises that he has true abilities, gains self-esteem and throws himself into his homework because he enjoys doing it. The main objective is to help these young people to achieve academic, human and social success through three cornerstones: - Reason: discussing on issues drives them to use their abilities to think, to make decisions and to get involved. - Religion: as a way to look for meaning in their lives. - Love: which is shown by the educators through being a loving, strict and attentive person and by the youth by being grateful. This teaching method is based on confidence in youths’ positive future.

Project hosted by

Blessed to Bless Orphaned Child Self Help Group was founded in the year 2005 a pastor who was brought up as an orphan himself and consequently had an interest and a vision of helping and supporting the orphans and vulnerable children within the community. He was assisted with other 15 well-wishers within the community whereby they formed a development group that was registered as a self-help group. The well-wishers began with 7 orphans that were being taught under a tree until 2012 when they received some support from an American well-wisher to construct a school for the children for the children. The project started to receive many children that are vulnerable and this resulted into establishment of three more kindergarten schools in different parts of Kakamega. The orphans are integrated with other children to enhance equality. It is currently hosting more than 350 children who are aged between 4 to 18 years. Many children have benefited from education in this project since its formation.

They also wanted to rescue street children who have families but due to poverty they end up in the streets in search of food and survival, these children are guided and counseled then taken back to school and given basic education. Currently, the school offer education from Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) to sixth grade. The school has a total number of 250 pupils where 135 are girls and 115 are boys.
