SPONSOR A CHILD IN THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC

Summary

The country has seen numerous coup d’états, rebellions and brutal regimes since independence. In 1997, France decided to withdraw its troops. However, the French financed a peacekeeping mission organised by neighbouring African countries so as to prevent chaos resulting from a power vacuum. Tens of thousands of Central Africans have been displaced by armed conflict. Just recently, activities of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rooted in neighbouring Uganda have started to spill over the border. Many have been forced to flee their hometowns to escape the violence

Challenge

The Central African Republic remains one of the poorest countries in Africa. Tens of thousands of vulnerable children are without access to basic services.

 

in the CentralAfrican Republic

Many of them have been orphaned by AIDS or civil war. SOS Children’s Villages supports and protects the children of this country in two different locations.

At present there are two SOS Children’s Villages in the Central African Republic, one SOS Youth Facility, two SOS Kindergarten, two SOS Hermann Gmeiner Schools, two SOS Medical Centres and two SOS Social Centres. A country facing many challenges.

Solution

Economically, the country overwhelmingly depends on its agricultural sector, with the majority of its population engaged in subsistence farming. Although the country is considered a democracy, freedom of the press remains severely limited.

SOS Children’s Villages in the Central African Republic

In a country so deeply affected by child poverty, a high infant mortality rate and dysfunctional family structures due to AIDS and civil war, the work of SOS Children’s Villages is extremely important. We started working in the Central African Republic in the early 1990s.

SOS Children’s Villages is supporting Central African children and young people by providing day care, education and medical services in two different locations. When children can no longer stay with their families they are cared for by SOS mothers.

Additionally, the organisation is running an SOS Family Strengthening Programme which works directly with families and communities to empower them to effectively care for their children and to prevent separation.

Long-Term Impact

The project trains 20 women from each municipality, who from their situation of exclusion, and many of them in poverty too, can have greater control over their lives by exercising their right to political participation and access to information and justice. Itll impact their entire community by forming support networks with a vision of rights and a gender perspective, strategic alliances with male leaders, tending towards progressivity in women’s political rights and its future consolidation.
