E-mail Print PDF

 


The year 2012 was a very successful one in so far as taking care of our vulnerable in society is concerned and in particular at Nyamphande Orphanage and Community School & Rural Health centre. In the year under review there were a number of activities that took place with the sponsorship of CHAZ, who have always come to Nyamphande’s aid whenever such activates are to be undertaken. According to the program set out by CHAZ the following are the activities that took place between August and December 2012 at Nyamphande and in the surrounding areas.

CHAZ Training Programs For Drama Groups Members: -

In March 2012 CHAZ requested for a drama teacher to be sent for training, Mr. Bwalya a, teacher at Nyamphande and the Patron of the Nyamphande Drama Group, was selected to undertake training that took place in Kabwe at Misuku Lodge from 12 March to 16 March 2012. This extensive training included Direct Observation Therapy and T.B. the difference has been evident at the school and in the surrounding areas since Mr. Bwalya undertook the training together with three other teachers, so much so that, they have come up with great plays and poetry that do not only educate on the perils of T.B and HIV/Aids, but also covered other topics that are pertinent in our society and these included issues of hygiene, sexual immoralities, Gender based Violence and Early Marriages.

On Independence Day the clubs displayed their talents and there was a big turnout for the events, awards were also given to deserving groups for best performance in various categories as a way of encouraging and motivating them.

Establishment Of Anti Aids Clubs: -
CHAZ 2012 action plan was for Nyamphande to establish Anti Aids clubs in all the schools under its catchment area. Nyamphande catchment area consists of 14 villages with more than 5 community schools some of which are not known. Nyamphande in collaboration with the community did manage to establish Anti Aids clubs in five different schools. Due to the escalation of the spread of HIV & AIDS and TB as well as other preventable illnesses as Malaria, Nyamphande began an exercise of establishing Anti Aids Clubs with a view to slowing down the transmission and spread of the disease in areas where communication is limited. At the end of the exercise, NOCS established Anti Aids clubs in five schools in the community. The schools are:-

Mulamba Community School.
Kamilulu Community School.
Katope Community School.
Madalitso Community School.
Mwambashi Community School.

The task was not an easy one due to the remoteness and the distance of the community schools. Our team did a tremendous job and the organisation of events was never disappointing. The team showed the importance of such clubs, as a tool of raising awareness through plays and performances. This was appreciated by most people who attended the events and wanted to find out when next, will such events take place. A follow up of the newly established drama group will be done next year as to see how well they will have improved.
It is envisaged that there will be even larger turn outs next year since word has spread and it is also our hope that children and parents alike will learn the dangers of these diseases but also of the help they can access and the preventative measures they can take.
All these schools had to undertake activities and plays that disseminated information about HIV pandemic and TB and ways of preventing the transmission from person to person. These activities were a huge success.

Food Supplement Distribution:-
Another activity that was undertaken by Nyamphande was that of distribution of food stuffs to those that fall under the category of the vulnerable due to their health status such as those ravaged by TB or HIV /Aids and other terminal illnesses. The distribution of these food staffs was not only limited to Nyamphande Orphanage & Community School, but to the rest of the catchment area covering a radius of 25Kilometers as these all fall under the Nyamphande program.

To cover these areas where the identified venerable people live, especially in places that are not easily accessible, Nyamphande had to involve the help of the Head Men/Women in the community and together planned on how best to reach these people and provide them with the much needed supplements. The exercise was made easier with involvement of the area leaders as they had registers of these vulnerable in their respective communities and the food was equally and equitably shared among the various villages.

Distribution of School Uniforms, Shoes, Books to the Community:-
Nyamphande through CHAZ carried out a distribution exercise of school equipment which included Shoes, school bags, books, mathematical sets and other school equipment. More than 260 orphaned and vulnerable children benefited from this exercise and this year, number is likely to increase the school population grows.

Payment of School Fees for the Vulnerable in the Area:-
More than 31 vulnerable and orphaned pupils benefited from this exercise through payment of Primary, Secondary as well as College fees being paid for at various schools and colleges.
We have now established a register of those that are being sponsored in these institutions and we will ensure that we monitor their progression as well as seeing to it that they do not drop out and opt to herd cattle or early marriages.

Home Based Care: -
Nyamphande home based care is a community programme; it targets the most venerable in our community especially those that have infirmity and are in need of a balanced diet as most might be on medication or too weak to fend for themselves. These groups of people are the ones that are in most need of supplements as they are most likely to have no means of accessing a balanced diet. Our teams of Care Givers helped to identify and distribute supplies to these groups of people.

This time a total of 30 adults and 25 children benefited from the food supplements that were distributed under the HBC component of our program. At the time of distribution, the number of those needing help was bigger on the ground than as registered. To this end, our care givers have already embarked on a registration exercise and these names will be included in next year’s budget.

We are very grateful to CHAZ for not only putting smiles on faces of our community but also teaching them the dangers of not detecting TB & HIV/Aids early as well as imparting some preventive skills through plays and drama, poetry, and other activities which CHAZ ably sponsored. Since these are annual activities, we can only appeal to CHAZ to empower Nyamphande even more and use us as a vehicle of behavioural change in the Nyamphande Community of Chinyunyu.
