Helping Children Worldwide is grateful to be the recipient of a generous grant from the First Fruit Foundation which will allow the CRC to renovate a former dormitory to make it suitable for visiting case manager, social workers, and caregivers to attend family reintegration workshops. The grant also covers the development of curriculum to teach case managers Attachment Theory, microfinance instruction, and implementation of the Child Status Index.
Once trained, the CRC case managers will be empowered to teach these skills to caregivers in villages served by the CRC and Mercy. The CRC also plans to offer family strengthening workshops, which includes positive discipline and life skills. The updates to the dorms will make them comfortable for workshop participants to stay at the CRC overnight.
