Bit by Bit Moving Forward

22 05 2012

I am glad to announce that the Movement for Youth and Children’s Rights organisation has relocated its Sierra Leone country Office from 3 Freetown Road Lumley to 84 Pa-Demba Road Freetown.
Secondly the Movement for youth and Children’s Right is now in partnership with Thou Shall Eat in a call to Action child Campaign against Violent Elections in Sierra Leone.
We are also proud to announce that MYCR- Sierra Leone now operates in Sierra Leone, Ghana and Liberia.
Many young people within the Africa diaspora are requesting to replicate this idea but not all will be consider right now, however we are thinking of reaching all over Africa and beyond.

News and updates

Dear Friends,

Hope you are all doing fine.

I am writing to give you some updates about MYCR Sierra Leone, its projects, and fundraising strategies here in Sierra Leone and aboard.

The Café funding ended in January and left much of which to be proud. Now we have three café centers in Freetown and Bo, and we are still working hard to continue establishing more. Out of the money raised since February last year, we were able to pay our center rents and order computers in the three centers, and we are also using the funds to continue our charitable work for children and to pay stipends.

This year, we have started working with schools in Freetown and the surrounding districts to develop curriculum for Nonviolent Communication, reproductive health and life skills. We have sent a proposal to the UN office here in Sierra Leone to fund this project.

We are still working on how and when to start the Hope Project with the Mamaka People. They provided MYCR with a piece of land for this project. We have conducted other community meetings with parents and a new project name was suggested: Tackling Child Poverty through Supporting and Strengthening Families. Our present plan is to develop/raise funds and establish a MYCR micro-finance trust for them. I learned about micro-finance from an NGO in Uganda and Nigeria. With this project, we will give loans to single parents and underprivileged women, which they will repay at low interest rates. This will help them to better their situations and take care of their children.

The Agricultural Project is doing well; the crops harvested recently will be cultivated again. The people decided to undertake a big planting this season.

Hawanatu Kamara is doing fine, still studying at the Milton Margai School for the blind and spending holidays with Augusta and I. Her grand mum came to visit her recently.

I will be in Syracuse, New York from the 7th-11 of April 2011, I have been invited to attend the Empathic Therapy Education and living conference with Peter and Ginger and from there, I am hoping to meet Ada in Seattle to pursue the Batik Clothing Project. We have prepared Batik clothes with the MYCR logo on them and T-Shirts for sale. Ada is willing to help with selling them and I am hoping to send some of you these clothes, so you could support our children and youth by buying a single item or help spread the news to your networks.

Will keep you posted

Peace

Dominic & Team
