Cicetekelo youth project
10 Feb 2010 - Cicetekelo youth project, a registered entity under the Association Pope John 23rd, aims at restoring and maintaining the dignity of orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) through education, economic, spiritual, social and moral empowerment. The project encompasses program interventions that prevent youths from getting on the streets. In this way, the project focuses on capacity building for both OVCs and other vulnerable households to uplift their well being and attain self ┐ reliance, and subsequently contribute positively to national development. The project has grown from 33 OVCs at its inception in 1997 to the current 330 OVCs who are recruited in collaboration with the District Social welfare department, Ministry of sport, youth and child development, Residential district committees (found in all local communities), churches, schools, families, other NGOs and CBOs dealing with OVCs. Reintegration of OVCs into their families is also a fundamental aspect undertaken by the project in line with its objectives. CYP operates from two centres: (a) Phase 1 in Nkwazi Township - is designed for the OVCs between the ages of 8 and 15 from under privileged families from Nkwazi and other high poverty areas such as Sinia, Kawama, Pamodzi and Chipulukusu. The center has 200 OVCs. (b) Phase 2 in Minsundu ┐ designed for youths aged 16 to 22 years. It is a referral for children from phase 1 who have attained the age of 16, and also from the other institutions such as families, department of social welfare and residential district committees. The centre currently has 130 OVCs. The target at phase 2 is to promote independence and self confidence in the youths

Establishment of Azerbaijan Mine Victims Association (AMVA) in Tartar, Fizuli and Aghstafa districts of Azerbaijan
23 Sep 2010 - As result of the 1992 -1994 war between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh areas, close to 1 million people were displaced from their place of origin. Although a ceasefire on hold since May 1994, these refuges/internally displaced populations are still living in an extremely deplorable condition. Another consequence of the war is that numerous number of the population became handicapped as a result of landmine/UXO explosion. These victims live in various part of the Azerbaijan. Most of the victims are suffering from different degrees of invalidity. Their physical incapacity have directly affected the living conditions of the family as most of these victims are from men-folks and in most cases are the only earning members of the family. The mine/UXO victims live their lives with very little support from the government. They therefore need more support ┐ financial, material, health and moral, to address their difficulties and/or concerns. The IEPF (International Eurasia Press Fund) through the project ┐Mine Victims Needs Assessment┐, implemented in 2004 with financial support from EC (European Commission), was able to identify the following challenges being faced by the mine/UXO victims of Azerbaijan:  They are in real need of some kind of job opportunities for their living ;  They and their families are among the poorest bracket of the society ;  They are primarily involved in herding and Agriculture ;  They need legal assistance on issues in regards to the categorization of invalid status; and  A sizeable portion of the mine victims needs medical assistance

Through this unexampled advocacy programme, we entreat people to light a ┐Millennium Candle┐ and show the leaders of the world that they need to fulfill their promises that have been made to them back at the UN Millennium Summit in year 2000. This campaign strives to light up ┐FOUR┐ candles in the process: 1. Virtual Candle on its official website: www.millenniumcandle.org, 2. Actual Candle in the candle-lit awareness seminars. 3. Spiritual & Intellectual Candle of hope, peace, equality and love in the hearts, minds, and souls of people across the globe. 4. Metaphorical/Symbolic Candle: of a world that is lit with peace, prosperity, justice and equality ┐ a world far more equal than it is now. Objectives of the Project: ┐ Promote Advocacy ┐ Involve & Engage Youth ┐ Build Alliances & Partnerships ┐ Enhance Outreach World-wide ┐ Foster local ownership of UN MDGs ┐ Advocate Volunteering for Development ┐ Create Mass Awareness about UN MDGs ┐ Ensure Youth Activism & Empowerment ┐ Contribute to the realization of UN MDGs

Soliciting work from professional communication designers
23 Sep 2010 - The most effective and economical method of resolving a design problem is to engage the services of an appropriately qualified and experienced designer, design team or design company and to collaborate closely throughout the design process. A recommended approach to evaluate competing designers is to request samples of work from previous assignments that are similar in nature to the project for which you require design services. After this review, if initial concept work is necessary to make a final selection, full fees should be paid to each designer asked for submissions.
