1 PROJECT PROPOSAL PROJECT NAME: needs support Orphans and vulnerable children PROJECT IMPLEMENTER: Bethany Rehabilitation Center (BRC) REGISTRATION NUMBER: DGCS/413/2011 CONTACT PERSON: Duhimbaze Tom TELEPHONE: WEBSITE: PROJECT COST: 111,783 (USD) TARGET POPULATION: Orphans and Vulnerable Children in families with double orphans and people having HIV/AIDs

2 Executive summary Bethany Rehabilitation Center registration number; DGCS/413/2011 was founded in 2011 as non-profit community based organization in Kisoro, South western region of Uganda. The project registered over 120 vulnerable children from the area. Its objectives majorly include; establishment of a home for the homeless, distressed and HIV/AIDS orphans, providing immediate needs and other timely needs of orphans and nurturing sick and malnourished Orphan children for better health and keep them well and strong through child survival program Children constitute large percentage of population in Uganda. the child should grow up in a family Environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love, guidance and understanding! From a child s physical and mental development, they require care in regard to physical, mental, moral and social development. But social indicators show a decline in social and economic welfare of children. low levels of education among the whole population of the community has also been attributed to the increasing number of Orphan children as a result of HIV and AIDS scourge, poverty and poor health conditions. Once we secure the funds it will be a permanent model rehabilitation centre for other parts of Western region and Uganda as whole. In addition to this the project will be sustained in the following ways; Accessing funds from global donors, Initiating micro projects, contribution from project beneficiaries and Community Participation 1.1 BACKGROUND-BETHANY REHABILITATION CENTER Bethany Rehabilitation Center registration number; DGCS/413/2011 was founded in 2011 as non-profit community based organization in Kisoro in the extreme end of South western region of Uganda. It was started by a team of dedicated persons with the aim of helping the children affected and infected with HIV/AIDS. We run the center in Kisoro main village, Kisoro town council.

3 Bethany Rehabilitation Center (BRC) is able to provide a small orphanage project that will provide children with a safe and stable home, education and support throughout their childhood. This will be a solution of solving the problems hidden by the fact that orphans and vulnerable children are invisible; yet by the very nature of their situation, they are included among those that are classified as disadvantaged and poor in Uganda. In Kisoro district like any other areas of the World, there is growing number of Orphaned and homeless children caused by HIV/AIDS and other illnesses. In addition to this, because of constant political instabilities in neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) many children always suffer in the transit camp of Nyakabande because most of their parents are killed by rebels. These children are often abandoned with no way of tracing their family members. Findings still shows that children in abject problems are recognized by rather elementary (as opposed to sophisticated) criteria. Top on the list is absence of basic necessities such as shelter, food, clothing and water. Equally important is the human condition in terms of physical health and parental care and protection. While there seems to be national consensus among donors, the public sector and civil society that the government has made commendable progress in implementing PEAP (Poverty Eradication Action Plan) as flexibly as possible, it s evolving nature, due to the participatory and consultative reviews it undergoes regularly, does not address many of the development challenges disadvantaged children face today. It would take lobbying and advocacy interventions to ensure that the needs and demands of children in abject poverty are met. According to UNESCO 2003 study on Children in Abject Poverty in Uganda indicates that: Ill health and inadequate health services remain critical challenges for children in abject poverty. This is aggravated by the living conditions of children in almost all the districts of Uganda where the pilot study was carried out.

4 1.2 Objectives of the Project The project objectives are majorly but not limited to: i. The establishment of a home for the homeless, distressed and HIV/AIDS orphans. ii. Providing immediate needs and other timely needs of orphans like food, clothing, shelter and elementary education for the orphans, training them in the self reliance skills that will be available at the center. iii. Nurture sick and malnourished Orphan children for better health and keep them well and strong through child survival program. 1.3 Mission To mobilize resources for addressing the challenges facing orphans and enable them realize their full potential through promoting programs on education, health care, recreational skills, social security and moral support. 1.4 Problem statement As we recognize that the children occupies a very unique and privileged position in the African society and that for the full harmonious development of their personality, the child should grow up in a family Environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love, guidance and understanding! From a child s physical and mental development, they require care in regard to physical, mental, moral and social development. Rural parts of Uganda have got large number of orphans than urban centers because people living in rural areas are not sensitized on prevention methods of HIV/AIDS. The age of orphans, however, is fairly consistent across parts of the country. Surveys suggest that about 15% of orphans are 0-4 years old, 35% are 5-9 years old, and 50% are years old. But despite of the efforts to improve the lives of the children, social indicators continue to show a decline in social and economic welfare of children. Also low levels of education among the whole population of the community has also been attributed to the increasing number of Orphan children as a result of HIV and AIDS

5 scourge, poverty and poor health conditions. Worst of all, the child-headed household trend in Uganda is such that rural areas have 79.9%, of which 49.6% are male-headed and 30.3% are female-headed. The trend in urban areas is that of the 20% child-headed households, 10.5% are male-headed whereas 9.6% are female-headed (Uganda Bureau of Statistics-UBOS, 2000). The complexity of the problem of child poverty in Uganda is large and growing, and cannot be ignored when designing national development and poverty reduction strategies. Unfortunately, children especially orphans continue to be marginalized irrespective of interventions where by assumptions are made that interventions that address adult and household needs are also good for all children, including boys and girls of school-going and non-school-going ages. This partly explains why child poverty is underrepresented in most studies on poverty in Uganda (Save the Children UK, 2003) 1.5 Project duration Once we get the funds it will be a permanent model centre for other parts of Western Uganda although it will be subjected to forensic yearly audits and evaluation to determine its viability 1.6 Budget estimate for one year NO DESCRIPTION UNIT COST(In Dollars) ESTABLISHING REHABILITATION CENTER PREMISES 1 Acquisition of land Construction &purchase of building materials Latrines Electricity TOTAL COST (In Dollars) unit:0.2 SUB TOTAL FOOD SECURITY/AGRICULTURE 5 Seeds e.g. beans, maize and Irish potatoes Goats Piggery keeping Poultry keeping Diary cows Sprayers Feeds 240 SUB TOTAL 8700

To get a committed donor(s) with a passion for the betterment of the lives of the African child to donate funds and materials that will enable the project to take off the ground. ii. To establish the centre in the stages as planned in the areas highlighted and manage it to the standards required for the upbringing and rehabilitating the target groups. iii. To solicit funds from the government, local & international leaders and non government organizations, individuals for the management and advancement of the center. iv. To engage awareness and civil education lobbying and advocacy programs for the advancement of the right and welfare of the child. v. Start a business training program as part of the self reliance skills training for women to build up the Income to be used in micro finance loans for women to get start up capital.

7 1.8 Monitoring and evaluation A comprehensive monitoring and evaluation system will be put in place to monitor and evaluate project activities. Quick books financial tracking system will be put in place to monitor cash flows, expenditures and purchases. For security and reliability quick books accounting data base is to be used and will be managed by the chief accountant. Income and expenses will be entered into the system and regular reconciliations are to be done. 1.9 Reporting We expect to send quarterly operational report about the progress of the project, every after three months and a comprehensive report will be sent every after six months covering; financial status, project activities so that the participating donors can review how the donations given are used in accordance with the vision of the centre Required time for implementation of the program/project The project is in the position but the fund and other requirements, like funds, building materials and others are needed so urgently. We hope if the good Samaritans and donors out there can consider our appeal. We need this assistance urgently in that acquisition of land and construction of the building takes place as soon as possible.
