Principles and Orientation
Children Cooperative (CC) started working about 4 years ago with the aim of promoting the wellbeing and empowerment of socially excluded children through participatory educational activities. They use art, drama, games and discussions to explore solutions to issues that are important to children. CC particularly focuses on working with children of different cultures and backgrounds, and promoting mutual tolerance and understanding among them.
CC which was formally registered in 2006 (Registration Number 6920) has a stuff of 7 employees
CC adopts participatory methodologies, based on the conviction that like adults, children have the right to have their views heard and taken into account in decision-making, and that children’s participation is crucial for development work, in addition to the fact that adults cannot protect children all the time. Thus developing children’s decision-making abilities empowers them to deal with the risks and challenges they face every day.
CC's adoption of participatory methodologies is expressed through:
Children Cooperative targets vulnerable children in Egypt who face discrimination because of poverty, class, race, gender, religion and ability. These include:
CC's activities are open to everyone who would like to participate in them. About 30 refugee kids have been included in these activities.
During it work, children cooperative conducted the following activities:
Training with St. Andrews (has been continuing for the 3rd year) on life skill training, for teenagers, the training included
o Series of workshops to have kids start their own stuff
o Tennis training
o English training
CC is about to issue ID or membership cards for kids involved in the activities conducted in the garden.
Problems and hardships facing work:
1. Lack of fund for essential and basic requirements needed in their activities, such as:
2. The need for volunteers (who will get training) to coordinate and organize work with kids.
Relations with other organizations working with refugees:
CC has good relations with NGOs, civil society institutions and CBOs but most of which work with Egyptians, not refugees. In this regard CC is now gathering info from CBOs from south Cairo to establish a network among them. CC is also coordinating work with 25 NGOs doing many different activities.
CC also coordinated work with some refugees CBOs in 4.5 district (such as Abanos and Ared Altybeen) in conducting trainings for children on different topics.
In addition, there is also CC's cooperation with St. Andrews and Townhouse in several activities as mentioned before.
CC's main needs are related to finding a stable fund for their activities specially with having a huge space for different kinds of activities (Child Garden).
As for training, CC has its own training program and people who are qualified in fields of strategic planning, animation, health, child protection, fund raising … etc. Their experience in this regard has been gained and used through different organizations such as UNAIDS, Arab Council for Childhood, Save the Children, UK, Mena Office, Institute of Cultural Affairs, UNICEF and Development Support Center.
