Fund post-Fani safe learning spaces
After Cyclone Fani, as the adults struggle to put their lives and homes back together, children are often left on their own and vulnerable to danger. During this time of recovery, these children need a safe environment where they can continue their daily activities such as studying and playing. CFS also takes care of their health, nutrition and gives them study materials so that their education is not affected until schools open in January.WHY KRUSHNA PRASAD BLOCK
Situated on the banks of the Chilka lake and closer to the Bay of Bengal where Fani was at its fierccet, Krushna Prashad block is one of the most affected blocks of the Puri district. Almost all the houses, school buildings, health centres of the block are partially or completely demolished. As children are forced to deal with an uncertain future, the seven CFS will help ease their anxiety and ensure they continue their education.THE PLAN
CYSD started seven Child-Friendly Spaces for school children in six of the badly affected villages of Krushnaprasad block, initially for three months - from August to October. They need to continue this service for another two months as the schools will not be ready till January. The cost of running these seven transitional spaces - providing study materials, first-aid, seating mats and supervisors - are ₹35,000 per month.
