What impact have you had?
The lessoned learned will impact positively on the government policy makers and different other stakeholders who occasionally implement development programs for this target group.
The following are the actions/steps:
a. Identify, contact and select the street children - The target group children will be identified from the city streets to find the right ones.
b. Bring in the office and organized them into groups for counseling – After selecting they will bring in the office and organized into groups (25 in each) to counsel in a proper way.
c. Prepare a module for counseling – A right based module will be prepared to counsel the children. Child psychological issues will be considered to wake up their mental development during the preparation of the module. and
d. Develop a network (including a charter) – After completion of counseling a network will be developed including the children. This network will be run through fixed rules and regulations (prepared jointly by the TG children and the NGO) by the children themselves under the supervision of the NGO, Unnayan Uddog.
The measurable expected results are:
(a) The number of street children brought under the program – A total of 1000 street children will bring under the program.
(b) The number of children got counseling support on rights and mental health – 1000 street children will get extra vigor and strength, moral and physical support by the society.
(c) A network of the street children developed – This network will work to oversee the wellbeing of them.
What will it take for your project to be successful over the next three years? Please address each year separately, if possible.
In the 1st year proper selection, counseling and building up the network are the key issues.
In the 2nd year, close monitoring is important whether the network is running through depending on the Charter. It is also important to develop a fund to run the network. It may come from the contribution (may be very small) of the children or from the donors.
In the 3rd year, follow up the activities of the network and make necessary revisions in the Charter (if necessary) to obtain the interest of the street children and the expansion of the network activities to accommodate the new children is important.
What would prevent your project from being a success?
The following are the issues those may prevent the project being a success:
a. Wrong selection of the target group;
b. Lack of proper counseling;
c. Lack of preparing a good Charter.
d. Lack of monitoring.
