Sustainability and self reliance is an important aspect to our Miale programs. Johari endeavors to empower all the guardians in Miale outreach program with simple income generating activities.
Currently, the guardians have gone through series of training on how to make liquid soap. This training is aimed at equipping the guardian with knowledge and skills on how to become reliant and eventually reduce dependency syndrome.
The training is part of income generating activities. The beauty of this activity is that guardians have initiated it themselves through the social groups. Our work as Johari is to equip them with the skills. These guardians have been organized into 4 small social groups of 15 members and this has made it easy to impact the skills to them.
The Liquid soap will be used at home and the surplus sold to the local community members for purposes of increasing income in their house holds to cater for their needs. It has been a very exciting venture for both the guardians as well as Miale staff.
“This soap looks better than the one we always buy from other suppliers” one guardian commented. “And the process of making the soap is very easy, I have been thinking it’s magic” another guardian made fun.
Johari Foundation will strive to empower the guardians holistically for the purpose promoting the rights and welfare of the children and their households.
