Child Centered Integrated Community Development Program (CCICDP)

KOINONIA has been working to reduce the effects of poverty through ‘Child Centered Integrated Community Development Project’ (CCICD) with Poorest of the poor, disadvantaged and deprived section of people(children, Adolescent, women and Men).

Socio-economic condition of Mollarhat sub-districts is high poverty (hard core poor -20%, poor-50% ) and low literacy rate (literacy rate is 31.6%). The common natural disasters of the targeted areas are flood; storm, cyclone, water logging   and salinity to which people especially poor are suffering from its impact. They are mostly affected by flood, salinity, and water-logging. During that time they have been suffering from various diseases like diarrhea, dysentery, cold fever, pneumonia, skin diseases etc; water crisis, crop destroyed, income decreases are the common features of impact. Many people migrate for searching alternative income source. Women and children are mostly victimized. Most of them don’t know any information about public service from the concerned sector of government. Participants of FGD gave their opinion about the measures of reducing loss due to disaster. Most of them said that awareness rising on disaster and climate change issue would be effective measure. They also shared that if people have skilled training on income generating activities they can easily cope up with the adverse situation.

Project Goals:

The activities of Koinonia include the community people who are vulnerable and disadvantageous. Koinonia has always tried to broad its area to cover as much as vulnerable people it can.  We organize trainings on different issues such as gender, HIV, disaster risk, health, sanitation. All those issues are focused to raise awareness among the civil society, community people. As Koinonia has strong networking with other government and non-government organization thus it was feasible for us to build goodwill in civil society. Still we are attending different seminars/ workshops organized by other organization, meetings to make a positive change among civil society.
