SHA (Self-Help Group with KNH)

The 5 – year project of PKKK and KNH is entitled, “Rebuilding Women and Children’s Lives, Rebuilding Communities: A Self Help Program for Rehabilitation in Barangay Tinabanan, Samar.” The project takes into account the damages done by supertyphoon Haiyan and sees this as the main and urgent reason for the intervention.

Sitios Km 8 and Km 22 of Barangay Tinabanan are the target areas since they are less served by the government. It’s main strategies are to organize and train a number of vulnerable groups of different backgrounds as households, as groups and as barangay networks for self-help. Appropriate gender analysis and participatory planning and development tools are used in facilitating issue and problem analysis and development planning, evaluation and monitoring focusing on the following key areas: Awareness raising regarding women and children’s rights, disaster preparedness and understanding climate change, financial literacy and livelihood development, community managed health systems and alternative learning systems while using the action-reflection-action continuum.
