Programs To Accommodate Your Families’ Needs
We run various programs to assist families in their daily life. We help children in receiving education and also help their families in paying their bills.
Lessons And Education
Under this scheme, we provide technical and financial assistance to children who need extra lessons for Common Entrance and CXC’s.
We cater to children that come from at-risk families and fall between 2 to 18 years old. We help children who are affected because of the following reasons:
- ✓ Death of the breadwinner of the family.
- ✓ Unemployment and under-employment of parents.
- ✓ Parents that are earning low or minimum wages.
- ✓ Parents with serious health challenges or disabilities which affect their ability to work.
Our trust provides comfort to donors by ensuring that we help only those who truly need our assistance. We conduct various checks to understand the individual problems that each family faces.Our methods include:
- ✓ Interviewing the families.
- ✓ Investigating within the community.
- ✓ Getting recommendations from schoolteachers and principals.
- ✓ Getting recommendations from the sitting Member of Parliament.
- ✓ Terms reports from the students to monitor the child’s performance. 6) Full means testing
At Eden Lodge Youth Charitable Trust, we are accountable for our work. This remains the same with donors and partners. We provide detailed reports to our donors and partners on request. In the reports, we show them how their funds have been distributed. We also encourage the donors to visit the families and observe the impact of work being conducted with their funds.
Criteria For Assistance
People seeking assistance must have children. They should be either unemployed or are employed at minimum or below minimum wages. We also provide assistance for families where parents are experiencing serious health challenges. Assistance is also available for families that are impacted by the death of the breadwinner and cannot take care of the children effectively.
All the families are investigated by the council and trustees to ensure that they are underprivileged. People in need of assistance must complete a family assessment form. After that, one of our officers will visit the family and conduct a thorough investigation. The investigation includes recommendations from the M.P, teachers, members of the church, and such.
