Poland groups proposal june 2012[1]

  2. 2. 1. PROJECT BACKGROUND AND JUSTIFICATION1.1 PARISH PROFILEHoly Trinity Kariobangi Catholic Parish is one of the Parishes within the Archdiocese of Nairobi(ADN). The vision of ADN is “to be a witness of love reflecting the Church of Christ where allare dignified”. The mission of ADN is “to fulfil the mission of Christ through evangelization ofthe whole person”.Like the ADN, Kariobangi Parish is highly involved in development work. This is mainly inalleviation of human suffering, enhancing social justice and general peace building. The Parishendeavours to educate the Parishioners and general community on their dignity, rights and duties tothemselves and their country.Kariobangi Parish has jurisdiction over the area covering Huruma, Kariobangi and KorogochoLocations. For the ease of administration, the parish is divided into four zones, namely, St.Martin’s-Ngei, Huruma, Central (Kariobangi) and St. John’s-Korogocho. Besides the main Church,there are two outstations – St. Martin’s-Ngei and St. John’s-Korogocho. The Parish is run by theComboni Missionaries.A large proportion of the area falls within informal settlements. In total, the Parish has over500,000 residents with a fairly high density of 8 or more persons per household who are usuallydependent upon one breadwinner. Most households live in single rooms measuring less than 10square feet.1.2. CURRENT SITUATION OF UNEMPLOYMENTThe core problem identified in various stakeholders meetings with the youth and local leaders is“over 4,000 young people in Holy Trinity Kariobangi are unemployed”. This has led so manyyoung people getting them involved in crime, alcoholism, drug abuse and other forms of anti-socialactivities. As a result, people in the community are living in fear of insecurity and violence.Majority of the perpetrators of crime and violence in the area are youth. Among the key reasons forthis is unemployment. Indeed, in a recent youth forum, the youth prioritized unemployment anddrug abuse as the most pressing issues in the community. The youth start getting into these viceswhile still young. Cases of “children” as young as 13 years being involved in armed car-jackinghave been reported.Numerous causes of unemployment have been identified. They include, but not limited to: • Corruption • Lack of employment opportunities in the local and national economy • General household poverty • Discrimination against the youth • Diseases, such as HIV/AIDS • Drug abuse and addiction • Family break-ups and neglect of parental responsibility • Lack of vocational skills and inadequate facilities for the same • Lack of and / or low education levels 2
  3. 3. 1.3. PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION AND ANALYSISHoly Trinity Kariobangi has always been concerned with the well being of the young people. TheChurch has thus used every available opportunity to propagate against unemployment as well as togather information on possible interventions. In so doing, the Church has also sought to understandthe root causes and effects of the problem and its other dynamics as fully as possible.The Church has initiated and hosted more than ten stakeholder forums to discuss the causes of theproblem, effects and possible interventions to reduce the same. The stakeholders who participatedin these forums include: - • Youth and youth leaders • Local administration (Chiefs and village elders) • Security personnel (Heads of police posts in the area) • School leaders and teachers • Environmental conservation groups • Religious leaders from different religious and denominations • Leaders from Kariobangi Catholic ChurchThe identification and analysis of the problem was also informed by cases and incidents ofunemployed youth seeking the help of the priests and other pastoral leaders in the church.Additional insights have been received through staff serving in various parish projects.A lot of other useful information came in from various church ministries, groups, Small ChristianCommunities and individual Christians.Using data gathered using the above approaches; stakeholders summarized the most significantimpediments to sustainable lawful employment for the youth in Holy Trinity Kariobangi to be: 1) Lack of vocational skills by the youth 2) The youth lack enough motivation and drive for self employment 3) Lack of programs in Holy Trinity Kariobangi area with the capacity to create incomes for large numbers of young people 4) Inadequate support to youth income generating initiatives.1.4. WHAT HAS BEEN DONE BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCHKariobangi Catholic Church has been in the forefront in implementing various projects that reducethe impact of poverty. Some of the key interventions are highlighted below. Peace Building ProjectThe peace-building project focuses on improving the living standards of Kariobangi people throughdevelopmental activities: -Targeted groups have improved peace through developmentThrough this project the parish has been able to establish 6 peace clubs in primary schools. They areintended to introduce young school children to the culture of peace at an early age. Due tobudgetary constraints the parish is not able to reach out to the children in the other 46 primaryschools in the area.The project has also managed to address some aspects of insecurity and crimes. This has beenachieved through providing regular forum where stakeholders dialogue on crime and insecurity andhow to combat the same. In addition, the project has provided seminars and workshops in peacebuilding and conflict transformation skills for the youth.Whereas some impact has been achieved with a number of youth previously in crime giving up thevice, the parish is constrained financially. For instance, the parish does not have adequate financial 3

They also need to improvetheir working sites as well as start new environmental management and income generating projects.1.5.
