& help a family with a disabled child in Kyrgyzstan

The Children’s Centers

The social workers, community leaders, workers of the state institutions and EveryChild realize the difficult situation of disabled children and their families who have very low standards of living.  The disabled children are one of the most vulnerable groups in any society, but they are in more challenging situation when they are in the places with high poverty.

The research conducted by EveryChild in 2005 illustrates that improvement of the life of disabled children will be the organization’s goal for the coming years.

The issues of the people’s daily needs and in which way it could be possible to improve the situation were raised at the meeting with the parents and local officials organized by EveryChild in the four pilot settlements of the Talas region. The majority of the parents expressed the need of the day centers for children.

The majority of the parents find difficult to find a job. Because they cannot leave their children alone at home, without supervision, they are faced with a dilemma: to bring the child to a children’s shelter or be dependent on relatives. In the districts where the poverty is immense, it becomes a heavy burden for all the family members.

The opening of the Children Day Care Centers near their houses provides them with the opportunities of receiving professional care and finding a paid job in these centers or obtaining work experience.

Being established on the basis of cooperation with the local community” entails that the initiative comes from the local community and everyone contributes to the project. It is not only in financial form but it also entails contributions of useful materials or volunteering and one time’s time and energy –  other forms of support.
