Food and Hygiene Products Donation Project
Our idea in this project is to promote good health and hygiene among the black community living within our environs.
This idea is motivated by the fact that schools will be breaking for holiday starting from June and therefore poor households are about to face the burden of meeting their children`s nutritional and hygiene needs while home. In addition, our project is influenced by the urge of helping the community to recover from the shocks of Covid 19 pandemic that left majority of parents jobless and unable to provide for their children.
Based on our past experiences and in the spirit of helping Black communities to embrace change, our project has been designed to phase out our old norm of purchasing food products and distribute randomly randomly on door to door.
In this season, we will embrace technology whereby availability of food donation and hygiene products will be announced on our official website. Potential beneficiaries will be required to submit their interest through the website by selecting the items they mostly need from the list provided.
Afterwards, Umoja Foundation Trust Board will carry out weekly assessments of the submitted applications and decide on a date the parcel/gift voucher of requested items will be delivered to successful applicants.
The whole process is designed to enhance accountability, transparency and effective management of funds while on the other hand encouraging beneficiaries to utilize digital technology for a fair share of what the community fund have to offer.
Our Mode of operation will be on a rolling basis until the funds have been fully utilised. At the end of the project, a survey questions will be sent to the beneficiaries email in order to obtain their views and opinions. The survey will help us generate a report that will help us know how the project fared on. To enable a fair share and as a way of helping our organisation serve the community better, the logistical funds(volunteer costs and project coordination costs) saved in this project will be utilised to update our website by translating it into French and other African languages.
