Project Distant Adoption of African Children
The Aim of project
The project, Distant Adoption of African Children focuses on education. We aim to help children who live in poverty without means to access education because their parents or guardians cannot afford to pay school fees. These children stay in Africa and live with their parents/guardians, however the “Adoptive Parent” from abroad (usually from Europe) it can be a single person, group of people, family, school, organisation or a company – financially supports the child by paying school fees, uniforms costs and other expenses connected with the child's education. This financial support enables these children to enjoy basic living conditions, comparable with other children in the rest of the world, as they complete their education.
Money from adoptive parents does not go to the families of the students. Instead, the funds are sent directly to schools or to our local workers. These local workers take care of enrolment, ensure that each child attends the most suitable school, buy all necessary school equipment for these children and work in cooperation with the families. The “Adoptive Family” is informed regularly about their child's progress. Letters and photographs are exchanged between the adoptive family and their adopted child. The family can even visit their adopted child in Africa. The minimum period for adoption is 12 months. The role of the Adoptive Parent can be undertaken by an individual person, group of people, family, school, organization or company.
V rámci adopce zajistíme: asistenci při úkolech po škole, stravování ve školách, základní zdravotní péči a prevenci, podporu dívkám při předčasném těhotenství, ochranu před ženskou obřízkou, nucenými sňatky, domácím násilím, po ukončení vzdělání pomoc při dalším nasměrování s ohledem na schopnosti, talent, úsilí či rodinnou situaci daného dítěte.
