HOW WE DO, WHAT WE DO
The organization supports vulnerable children and youth who cannot support themselves to attend school so to acquire knowledge just like other children in the communities. Such kind of children includes those in child labor, fishing communities, from the streets, abandoned by their parents, disabled and those affected and infected by HIV/AIDS. The supported children and youth are identified by the local leaders with whom the organization works in partnership in the promotion of the rights and skills development. The women are also supported by the organization by empowering them with information and skills development for their self reliance.
The organization in a special way address issues of girl child who is the most vulnerable person who thought of lastly compared to her counterpart the boy out. The tradition culture practiced in the country makes the child most vulnerable. The girls are those who are considered last to be taken to school especially when the parent has little funds; it is the girls who look after their young ones whenever the mother gets any problem. They care for the sick ones in hospitals and even homes. EDGSO is sensitizing the community to appreciate the importance of the girl child as her counterpart the boy to have equal consideration in education. Girl child is being supported with funds to attend school to break the vulnerability.
Most of the supported children and youth are from vulnerable families that cannot afford to look after them given their merger incomes. Additionally the African culture of having many children with meager incomes makes them not to afford supporting them for education and other essential needs. The children are also trained in Gymnastic and Acrobatics.
