In order to promote reading among children and adults, NHI created the “Flying library”, a mobile library that every week visits 18 villages in the province of Kompong Chhnang. The flying library lends books and organizes reading activities addressed to the young public, in order to bring children to the world of reading.

Promoting reading and literacy at an informal level is fundamental in order to make people aware about the importance of studying and to promote access to primary education.

ECCE – EARLY CHILDHOOD CARE AND EDUCATION

CAMBODIA, Kompong Chhnang and Mondolkiri

Objective

Increasing the enrollment rate in primary school

Beneficiaries

1500 children and families

Partners

CEI; We World Onlus; Fondazione PIME

PROJECT

Between 2007 and 2015 New Humanity International started up 20 classes of Early Childhood Education in the provinces of Kompong Chhnang and Mondolkiri. The classes welcome children aged 5 and work as a bridge with primary schools, providing children with all the skills and knoweledges that will enhance their academic inclusion.

In the Early Childhood Education Centers, children belonging to ethnic minorities have also the opportunity to learn Khmer language, that will be the official teaching language in the primary school. At the same time, New Humanity organizes trainings for teachers and trainings on health, education and agriculture for the parents, in order to enforce the competencies of the whole community and to improve the economic conditions of families.

Since 2015 the management of the classes has beed taken in charge directly by local communities, that guarantee the prosecution of the work started by New Humanity in the country.

CONTEXT

In Cambodia children begin their primary studies at the age of 6 and the government, though recognizing the importance of pre-school education, can’t guarantee an adequate number of kindergartens. The absence of this kind of education, together with the poverty of the families in rural areas, leads to low enrollment rate at the age of 6 (23,5% of children enroll in primary school at a higher age) and to a high school drop-out rate. In Cambodia is estimated that only 50% of the children complete the primary education, and in rural areas the rate is lower than 40%.

In Mondolkiri the situation is even more critique because most families belong the Phnong ethnic minority, that don’t speak Khmer (that is the official language in Cambodia and the teaching language in public schools), with the consequence that 6 children out of 10 don’t complete primary school.

PROJECT

Capabilities has many meanings. It’s a name that encloses the initials of the 3 pillars of our program: Care, Advocacy and Promotion for people with disabilities. But the name Capabilities also reminds us about our power and potential.

Our project includes different components, all equally essential:

Care: New Humanity International manages 5 daily centers for children with disabilities. Each center hosts 15-20 children, mainly with intellectual disabilities. Children attend the center everyday, fron Monday to Friday, and have the opportunity to receive medical care, physiotherapy and special education. Also the parents are actively involved in the activity of the centers, taking part in volunteer turns in the kitchen or taking care of the cleaning.

Community Based Rehabilitation: Our staff also manages different activities directly in the villages, reaching all children who, for different reasons, don’t have the opportunity to go to the centers. The Community Based Rhabilitation foresees the direct involvement of families and of the whole community in which the children with disability live, and it’s the first step for their social inclusion.

Advocacy: Through a constant dialogue with local authorities and institutions and the organization of events in the villages or at National level, New Humanity International promotes the rights of children with disabilities, in order to guarantee their social inclusion.

Prevention: New Humanity International organizes meetings in the villages addressed to young women in order to promote early prevention of disability, with a particolar attention to prevention during pregnancy and early childhood.

Agricultural trainings: youth and adults with disabilities, together with their famiglie, have the opportunità to attend agricultural trainings on relevant issues such as domestic rearing, rice and vegetables cultivation, home-made fertilizers and greenhouses. The families who attend the trainings receive the material and support by our specialized staff in order to start up their own agricultural activities and

Since 2015, the project is under the responsabilità of the Dioceses of Battambang.

CONTEXT

In Cambodia, about 4,7% of the population has some kind of disability and most the 85% of people with disabilities live in rural areas.

The lack of public structures, together with the prejudice that often sees disability as a punishment, causes the isolation of people with disabilities.

MYANMAR,Taunggyi e Kyaing Tong

Objective

Promotion of psycho-physical development of children in pre-school age

Beneficiaries

900 children in pre-school age and related families, 100 operators and 500 farmers

Partners

Department of Social Welfare (DSW), Local communities, Pyin Nya Sanayae Institute

Donors

PIME foundation, Francesca Pecorari Onlus foundation, CEI

PROJECT

This project, started up in 2005, aims to promote the full physical and psychological development of children in rural areas of Myanmar.        

In order to reach the General Objective, the project sets following objectives:

  1. Ensure access to Early Childhood Care and Education to children aged 2-5 years old
  2. Increase the quality of educational services provided by local organizations, with a special focus on primary education
  3. Improve livelihoods of families with children in rural areas

To reach these goals we’re organizing following activities:

  • Trainings and awareness about childhood and education related topics to teachers, parents, village leaders and local operators.
  • Agricultural trainings to children’s parents
  • Building of Early Childhood Care Centers in villages where the higher need is detected
  • Organization and formation of Centers’ management committees
  • Restructuration of primary schools in rural villages

CONTEXT

In Myanmar children are starting primary school at 6 years old age and the government, even recognizing the importance of pre-school education, can’t grant an adequate number of early childhood centers.

Lack of this kind of education, jointed with families poverty in rural areas, leads to a very high school drop-out rate, more than 50%, and consequently a concerning illiteracy rate.
