Our current project
Kandyaa Child Protection Centre
Our third and current project aims to improve the living conditions of children and their care takers at the Kandyaa Child Protection Centre in Sodoké, Togo.
The children at Kandyaa are victims of brutal violence, exploitation, child trafficking, social exclusion and gross neglect. Many of them have been abused, ostracized and expelled as so-called witch children. Children in these emergency situations are able to find temporary shelter, protection, and psychosocial care at this state-recognized institution. Where possible, children within the centre’s care are prepared for family and social reintegration.
With the help of your donation, the RESPONSIBILITY Club will fund the installation of a new, gender-separated sanitary facility to improve hygiene standards at the child protection centre.
Our completed projects
Following successful completion of the Club’s first project in December 2017, our second project centred on supporting healthcare workers at the Matyazo Hospital in Tanzania.
The Matyazo Hospital is a Tanzanian medical care facility located approximately 45 km northeast of Kigoma. The hospital is an important facility for obstetrics in the Kigoma Region, where more than 1300 babies are delivered, and nearly 1200 surgeries are performed each year.
Through donations from employees and fundraising activities held throughout the year, the RESPONSIBILITY Club was able to successfully raise the $4,800 USD necessary to purchase the surgical lamp. The funds for the surgical lamp were officially donated in July, 2018.
General Trias Medicare Hospital
In situations where patients must be transported to healthcare facilities with greater medical capabilities, there were few safe and reliable transportation options available.
Thanks to your donations, patients are now able to be safely transported to and from the hospital.
