Plan Dramare Family Project

 

Our dream:

To provide a community of a Refuge-house, surrounded by small family homes for children in need in Africa, with local women as foster mother.

 

Our goal:

Children can grow up in a safe and secure environment and learn to live together as a family. The local community is involved and takes responsibility because the foster mothers come from the local community. The children visit the local school and stay in their natural environment.

 

The Plan:

  • We buy a house on a piece of property in the surroundings of Mikpunt (close to the community, but enough distance for a save environment. Close to a school)
  • Building small family houses around the main house, starting off with 6 houses
  • We select women from the local community (Klipheuwel) and train them to become a foster mother in one of the six family homes
  • Maximum number of children per family home is 5
  • The houses form a small community
  • We work with our local Project Leader (see below)
  • The foster mothers receive education and training on parenting and medical subjects. The Project Leader is responsible for the arrangements.
  • The foster mothers receive support from the Project Leader, who visits them on a regular basis
  • The Project offers the foster mothers a financial secure future
  • The Project provides transportation for the foster mothers. A small van for errands, visits to the hospital etc.
  • The Project arranges contacts with medical organizations
  • The Project leader gives monthly reports to DraMare
  • DraMare initiates fundraising in the Netherlands
  • The Project leader initiates fundraising in SA
  • DraMare visits the Project regularly, at least once a year
  • lives in the local neighborhood
  • is responsible for selection and training foster mothers.
  • is responsible for the intake when children need to be placed in care. Matches the children in the various houses considering age group, gender and health problems
  • visits the family houses twice a week on a regular basis. Unexpected visits are part of this.
  • signals problems in the family houses and  acts on them
  • is in reach of the foster mothers when needed. Or provides someone to stand in
  • writes monthly reports to DraMare
  • A Project Leader
  • A building (refuge-house) with several bedrooms, a classroom and bathroom for training and social events
  • Grounds around it to build on
  • 6 houses with kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and living room and room for a garden.
  • 6 foster mothers selected and trained by the Project Leader
  • A Van for transport of food supply and medical purposes
  • A fence around the project
  • Contact with health and community workers
