Journal ADRA : En direct du terrain

Chers amis d’ADRA France,

Je voulais juste que vous soyez parmi les premières personnes à découvrir le nouveau blog d’ADRA-France :
www.journalADRA.blogspot.com

Actuellement, c’est ma stagiaire, Lynn, qui publie des articles par rapport à ses expériences au Burkina Faso.

Si vous n’avez que le temps de lire qu’une seule chose sur le blog, lisez l’article par rapport à Martin.

Espérons qu’ADRA France pourra grandir rapidement et trouver des financements pour des projets au Burkina ! Il y a tant à faire – partout.

Bien amicalement,
Brina Leroux

Coordinatrice
ADRA France

Earthquake in Italy

Dear Colleagues,
A few minutes I spoke to Franca Zucca (Country Director ADRA Italy) again.
ADRA Italy cannot intervene during the “Primary Response” phase. The Italian civil protection, army, police etc are on the spot and do not allow any other organization to be present.

ADRA Italy plans to become active during the “Early Recovery” phase which might start in 3 or 4 week’s time. They would then welcome support from the ADRA network. We encourage ADRA offices to collect money for “Early Recovery Projects”. At that time we will also consider to provide surge capacity to ADRA Italy out of our ADRA EUD ER Team.

Let us remember our friends in Italy in our prayers.

Kind regards
Joerg

Success Story from ADRA Morocco

Last week in March we have started with the social education program for 100 children from age 12 to 15.
Out of 1675 children, they where selected by the director to attend this program being at high risk of drop out of the school. Initially I suggested that ADRA will design the curriculum and train teachers who will then teach the children but the Director insisted that ADRA teaches direct. So we accepted to start ourselves, gain first hand experience and experiment. The lessons include team building, communication, awareness, personal development, health and hygiene. After the first hour the kids didn’t want to leave the classroom, but continue. The lesson are taught in French/ German, and translated in Arab by one of our members who got good access to the children from the beginning.
This pilot project aims to reduce the drop out rate firstly, and then addresses the needs of the children, already in the street and later on the program ought to include also working with their parents.
