Local NGOs commit to Coalition for Orphans and Vulnerable Children

Facilitator Dr. Joni Schwartz at the Family Matters Project workshop.

Representatives of several local NGOs have committed to creating and being members of a Coalition for Orphans and Vulnerable Children whose underlying belief is that every child, regardless of background, deserves to grow up in a safe and nurturing family environment. The commitment came about following a two day workshop facilitated by U.S. subject expect Dr. Joni Schwartz in partnership with the U.S. Embassy and Drama Making A Difference (DMAD) Company’s “The Family Matters” Project. The workshop focused on advocacy training and strategic policy planning for NGOs, CBOs, FBOs and individuals working on issues relating to the rights of children.
