E AND Y 2020 COMMUNITY PROJECT – GOAL R 450 000
After resigning from my previous job and came back to live with my great-grandmother. I realised how much she needed to be taken care of but never really said anything. There are days when she’s unable to wake up because she’s suddenly ill. Clinic appointments where she had to go alone because i was working and couldn’t take time off. Cooking, grocery shopping and getting laundry done. As much as she tried to do all these chores by herself sometimes she’s unable to and I am glad I am here to help her now.
It came to my attention that other old people living alone or with their grandchildren go through the same thing and need help but don’t know how to go about doing so. Hence the project came to mind.
Due to the increased rate of unemployment in our country. I believe this project will help communities alleviate poverty and provide care needed by the elderly in our community. I believe our youth will be less depressed,the suicide rate will decrease and they will be proactive,while awaiting employment in their respective fields.
How will the project help the elderly,youth and community at large?- Households with old people living alone/with grandchildren will take priority.
Young individuals both males and females will be compensated on a monthly basis with a stipend for the following services rendered :- Engage the elderly in an everyday workout program to help stay healthy and a hobby they enjoy doing.
– Clean the house. Sweep and mow the lawn.
– Do their laundry.
– Accompany them to clinic appointments,collect their medication and collect their government pension money.
– Purchase their groceries and cook for them.
– Fix any broken items,paint or plumbing.
Execution process :- There will be employment contracts in place for these individuals,should they fail to fulfil their duties there will be consequences and replacements. This project will keep them occupied and off the streets until they get jobs in their respective fields.
Future growth :- Hoping the project becomes a success moving forward and assistance from the government. I would like to extend this project in all 9 provinces nationwide.
Acquire portions of lands to plant vegetables and fruits. They will be distributed throughout the community and help feed families.
Conclusion :I have identified 10 households who would benefit greatly from this project in my community so far.
Please help me start this project and run it for a period of 36 months and present the government with proof that it worked and hopefully receive funds and grow the project nationwide.
Your donations will be highly appreciated. God bless and thank you in advance.
