Project in collaboration
Spanning over 3 years, The Children in Need Foundation will support Fondazzjoni Sebh to address a number of aspects for the betterment of the lives of children living in homes through various therapeutic services.
This holistic approach will provide children the ability and skills to build up resilience and cope with the many challenges that will come their way.
These capabilities will help children bounce back from the stress, tragedy, trauma and adversity caused by their circumstances.
Children are braver, more curious, more adaptable and more able to extend their reach into the world - Hey SIGMUND.
The 45 children residing in 7 homes, will have a weekly individual psychotherapy session for the next 3 years.
Over this period, every child would have had 156 hours of therapy, totalling to 7,000 hours of therapy.
Ensuring that each child at Fondazzjoni Sebh is given the opportunity to exercise and do this whilst integrating in society.
The aim is to provide each child the opportunity to develop a skill and experience a sport or art of their choice.
Educate and support staff members about nutrition so that they may transfer this knowledge to the children.
This is an essential skill on how we need to take care of our bodies that has a lasting effect throughout ones' life.
HOW WILL WE DO THIS?
Children in Need will employ a team of psychotherapists and other therapists that will provide a holistic and consistent approach for the children.
A dedicated team of full and part-time therapists together with other specialists will be secured for the duration of the project to ensure continuity. This is crucial for the benefit of the children who have experienced the trauma of abandonment.
The total investment required to support all the 45 children and 90 staff members is estimated at around €150,000 yearly.
An expected effort ratio of 3:1 in favour of the children translates into an annual cost of:
€2,500 per child and €415 per staff member.
