To take account of the context, the environment of the child and the woman
global solution for the needs of the poor children and the poor woman,
adopted and defended by ISEFAD, is already
On the ground, the teams of "help-children" and "help-women" give to the people in distress or underprivileged, a considerable support of proximity: Because they work together with authorities or family members of the injured people.
In general, the situation of all the children and all the remarkably poor women of the localities can only improve. Each day we capitalise our knowledge of the contexts and our expertise on the development of the child and the evolution of the living conditions of the woman.
By reinforcing the local capacities by various means,
we help the inhabitants to implement beneficial projects for their
and women, and therefore for the future of the society. We
work thus for
a durable development of the localities where we intervene.
ISEFAD finds that childhood is individual and
spiritual: it is specific to each person. It is not solely decided
by the age or biological and psychological factors. Childhood is
a construction of the people around the child and the culture. It evolves/moves according
to circumstances' in its history. I.e. of an education with another, it is possible
to concern many variations in the important precept which prevails
for the child.
Some stress the co-operation whereas others develop the competition.
The autonomous behavior of the child can be interpreted in a positive
way whereas others perceive it like disrespectful. The child does
not only develop on a deserted island; it is on the contrary in fastener
perpetual with Universe which surrounds
other children, its parents, his community, the school, institutions. Thus,
to support the development of the child, and to meet his needs
in all their complexity, ISEFAD does not act
only towards the child himself. We adopt a global solution which
into account the context and the environment in which it is located.
MODE OF DIRECT CONTACT
Contrary to projects worked out by certain foreign organisations starting from done everything solutions and which would in the short or the long term prove to be inappropriate, the mode of direct contact ensures to the ISEFAD to remain closest to the real needs. It thus produces durable progress for the children and the women who from now on are assisted directly and seriously on the spot. It should be understood that the organization ISEFAD integrates perfectly the families and the company to give the adequate solutions to the various problems arising.
THE RESPECT OF THE OTHERS AND THE DIFFERENCES
In order to really be able to improve the living conditions
of the children and the disadvantaged women, ISEFAD imperatively
symbolises the respect of the differences and non-discrimination,
the approach detailed of the situations and the attention with the
environment of the child or the woman in extreme suffering.
In each locality, we work in the duration and take
care that the results are acquired truly. In the long term, our objective
is that the societies do not anymore need to treat the children and
The majority of the inhabitants of the low-district does not have access to education and are illiterate. ISEFAD works without waiting, to open a small school. The other major concern in the community is health. The sanitary arrangements are very deplorable, tetanus, malaria and other diseases kill many children easily. Attentive with the families, ISEFAD starts to sensitise children and women with rules of elementary hygiene.
