The construction of a new health center/hospital is nearing its completion, thanks to the generous donations and sponsorship of caring individuals. This will be a monumental improvement over the present healthcare facility (a small thatched roof hut containing only one bunk bed, a desk and numerous medicine cabinets).

Vocational Training

Since 2002, WILCAF has conducted Vocational Training Courses in Ibadan, Maiduguri and Enugu, training both orphans and handicapped youngsters: those physically and mentally challenged, and/or deaf and blind. The vocations taught include: tailoring, baking, poultry farming and secretarial work.


Ibadan Cheshire Home Poultry Farm


Work in progress on structure for
Vocational Poultry Farm.


Completed structure.

With each and every new undertaking, the main goal is always to educate the children and older students in trades that will enable them to become self-sufficient-giving dignity and purpose to the lives that held little hope before. For example, students are now managing the poultry farm above, with minimal assistance from their course manager. The students enrolled in the course also receive training in basic business and accounting, learning to maintain records of investment/selling costs, marketing, etc


At Ibadan School for the Deaf


Deaf students learning baking

In the case of the baking classes, young people learn the intricate and difficult task of large-scale bread baking. The brick oven can bake over 10 dozen loaves at a time and the adjacent kitchen has been fitted with an electrical mixer and roller. The finished product will be used to supplement the dietary needs of the children, with part sold locally, thus turning the course into a self-supporting and revenue producing venture.

Family Care has seen many of their older students continue the vocations that they have learned at the centers. This training has enabled them to branch out on their own, with the prospect of finding good jobs, becoming self-sufficient, and being recognized as valued members of their families and communities, despite their handicaps or economic status. The blind students take a typing course using typewriters and Braille slates and stylus.

Rural Adult Literacy Courses

WILCAF's adult literacy courses (running daily in six villages) empower adults with the ability to read and write.

Other services

Malnutrition in infants and children is on the decline, due to the large donations of milk, cereal and oral rehydration salts needed to combat this problem. Additionally, new crystal water wells were recently constructed in two Kaduna villages.

WILCAF's plans for the near future include constructing two village schools, three wells and one small bridge for the previously isolated village of Telele, whose dilapidated foot bridge made providing food, school equipment, building supplies and medical assistance a real challenge.

Orphanage Support Programs

Instead of gathering an increasingly-greater number of orphanages under our wing, that become reliant on our continued assistance each month, our efforts are focused on enabling each of the centers to become self sufficient, while continually to improve their infrastructure with little outside help other than the initial investment and training. In Oyo and Enugu States, this has been achieved by the construction of mini poultry farms, where the staff is trained to raise and sell the chickens - keeping half the profits for reinvestment into a new batch and using the other half to raise the standard of living for the children in the Homes, be it with school books and uniforms, more nutritional food, home renovations etc.

Mina To combat malnutrition, Family Care volunteers aid the Mina Orphanage Home by distributing healthy baby food and other necessary supplies. Improving the physical appearance of the center was accomplished by repainting sections of the orphanage; WILCAF volunteers then instructed the local staff about the importance of properly maintaining the facility and of keeping hygiene standards that will protect the health of the children in their care.

AFRICAN WILCAF firmly believes in the proverb, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Consequently, their main focus is to inform teachers and caretakers that giving quality attention to each child will have a lasting and positive impact. The Warri Orphanage Program is a prime example of this.KBMNI- WILCAF has developed a series of seminars and classes to demonstrate how dedication and commitment are cornerstones in a child's development. In addition to donating needed supplies and educating Warri's teachers, Family Care invests in the children themselves through lively classes and lots of personal interaction, encouragement and love-the keys to success!

 

 

The majority of patients who benefited from these projects would have never had the opportunity to consult a doctor because of their rural location and inability to afford treatment and/or medicine.


Many patients required extensive dental surgery.

While others only require basic dental attention

On a typical medical project,KBMNI- WILCAF assembles a team of medically trained volunteers for each weeklong project, gathering anywhere from 35 – 60 doctors, pediatricians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and logistical personnel. For the most part, state and local governments sponsor the prescription drugs used in the free clinic programs.

As a rule, the throngs of people seeking treatment will arrive in much larger numbers than the volunteer team is able to cope with. The usually quiet local hospital or building-turned-hospital becomes alive with activity, as many thousands of would be patients queue up waiting for treatment.


Preparing drug prescriptions.

Dispensing free prescription to patient.

The dedicated team of volunteers will work tirelessly through each day attending to the plights of the many needy patients.

While many of the patients receive treatment for more basic ailments, some show up with very large growths and hernias, which have been allowed to escalate to such proportions due to the absence of proper attention. Carrying their burdening growths for up to a decade, the afflicted are able to find relief in the form of surgical attention, without which, they would have continued to painfully exist with their conditions with no hope of being treated.


Eye examination

Eye treatment is in the highest demand. Many Nigerians who previously had been completely blind can now see due to the many ophthalmic surgical procedures that have been carried out. Aside from eye surgery, large-scale eye testing and distribution of eyeglasses has greatly improved the vision of many, especially the aged.

Professional volunteers include doctors, surgeons, dentists, and pharmacists.

Thanks to the generous support of GAIC and her arm- KBMNI- WINNAS LIFE CARE FOUNDATION sponsors, government agencies, participating NGOs, and countless volunteers, we anticipate a continual increase in the number of lives we are able to touch each year. This goal can be reached by generating an awareness of the need, which will, in turn, inspire more organizations and individuals to become involved with these programs.

 

This central African nation on the Gulf of Guinea with a population estimated at 15 million will be home to a new World Orphans' funded church-based orphanage in 2004. It is located in Boyo division, Northwest Province in the city of Fundong. Official languages are both French and English with over 250 African languages.

The country is shaped like an elongated triangle which forms a bridge between West Africa and Central Africa.

About 60 percent of elementary school age children are enrolled in school; however, only 20 percent of these attend secondary school.

Cameroon is a country afflicted by pervasive poverty. There is a rising infant and under-five mortality rates coupled with an alarming growing number of orphan children, victims of the AIDS epidemic, malaria epidemics, and 51 percent of the population lives below the poverty line.

The overseeing church for this home is the Joseph Merrick Baptist Church (JMBC). Plans are to rescue & rear 100 orphaned and abandoned children through their secondary school years, and many more children over the current generation.

"Physical" Marketplaces Renovation Project

Aims and Objectives

• It is our intention to renovate the African ,Asia marketplaces beginning with Nigeria, Sierra Leone,and Ghana so that the people will resume and continue trading.
• We are hoping to set an example for other markets to follow.
• Create an atmosphere of self reliance and responsibility
• Encourage entrepreneurship among the people
• Involve the people in the Market renovation process
• Educate the people on maintenance
• Encourage the youths to engage in commerce instead of Migration

Why renovating African Markets?

 

Market Renovation Project:
For the sake of the comprehensive market data, KBMN-WILCAF has successfully carried out a research aimed at determining the right and/or potential customers for the sake of project sustainability.
The local farmers need the market to sale their goods and if the market is in a bad condition, the chance of selling the products will diminish, as a result causing people's discouragement to produce more, since there will be no funds to continue.
Renovation of the market will pave way for the local farmers to sell their products, make money for buying more grains and caring after their families.
The same principle is applicable to the manufacturers. In Africa, the local manufacturers depend solely on the markets to reach the people. But the present condition of the marketplaces has made it impossible for these manufacturers to reach the people. Thus, since poverty overtakes them, many manufacturers have no other choice but to shut down their companies.

70% of African parents are traders. That means that caring for their families depend on the condition of the local market. The truth is that mothers suffer the most if the condition of the marketplace is bad.
In most African Culture, Mothers are more responsible than fathers hence they depend on the local marketplace to earn the money to care for their families.

The bad condition of the marketplaces in Africa is one of the major reasons for suffering in Africa.
Global Humanity is focusing on this seemingly forgotten sustainable development project. We are keen at renovating these marketplaces so that parents can sell their goods; earn money for catering for their families.

While most organizations are busy renovating schools and donating second-hand computers to schools. KBMN-WILCAF argues that it will be better to help the parents so that they will be able to buy the things their children need. In which case the joy of a child, the pride of the parents is guaranteed and family relationship tightened.
Most of KBMN-WILCAF have been investing in projects to help in African development. Sustainability is important since it will guarantee that KBMN-WILCAF have only to invest once and then follow up with supervision.

The best way to help Africa is by renovating the existing marketplaces so that the people will rent shops, sell their goods and make their money. So that KBMN-WILCAF do not have to invest endlessly.

KBMN-WILCAF argues that it will be better to help the parents so that they will be able to buy the things their children need. In which case the joy of a child and the pride of the parents is guaranteed and family relationship tightened. See Market place adoption. The best way to help African economy is by renovating the existing "physical" marketplaces so that the people will rent shops, sell their goods and make their money. So doing, WILCAF-KINGDOM BUILDERS do not have to invest endlessly.

Solid Waste Management


Project description:
The present situation of most African countries in terms of solid waste collection, disposal and/or recycling is causing various types of sicknesses; e.g., typhoid fever, malaria, Dieria, etc. As a result, very many people die from diseases caused by preventable situations.
The amount of refuse on streets in most of the African countries is up to three (3) meters hence the air is polluted and environment totally damaged
The cause of this situation is lack of alternative provision for refuse disposal e.g. refuse bins, refuse disposal trucks, trained refused disposal personnel and sanitation controllers, lack of education on the effects of environmental catastrophe and lack of punishment for offenders.
At present, the people have the attitude of dumping the refuse on the streets for the local authorities to remove. Actually that is the right way to do it except the fact that lack of refuse collection containers has left the people with only one choice – dumping the refuse on the streets.

 


If there is no refuse disposal companies in Europe, Europe would have looked like Africa.
But realising that refuse should be recycled, Europeans generate millions of dollars from recycling and recycled products each year.
The same could be done in Africa. Together with the people, PMWA  has started a
campaign aimed at cleaning and recycling the refuse instead of dumping them on the street. Help

Hygiene and sanitation challenges

LOCAL AUTHORITY:
Refuse disposal is one of the major functions of the local Government authorities. Most of the African local government authorities are ill-equipped. This has resulted in poor quality of services or in some cases, no service.
In terms of refuse disposal, most of the local authorities use open vehicles such as tippers to dispose the refuse after the height has attained to three (3) meters or more. The result of using and open vehicle to dispose refuse is environmental catastrophe. After clean-up the streets becomes even worse. This method of clean up must change.

AIMS AND OBJETIVES:
• Use Aba, Abia state of Nigeria as an example for the rest of African cities
• Set up a logical refuse collection system
• Set up a Refuse disposal mechanism
• Set up a Refuse recycle system
• Create employment and income
• Introduce usage of refuse collection trucks
• Working hand in hand with local authority
• Maintain high level of hygiene
• Educate the people by means of television program (Clean Africa)
• Generate income by means of refuse recycling
• Advice the state and Local Government on Solid waste management
• Clean up Aba and publicise the activities through TV program (Clean Africa)
