Healthy and educated children, women and youth living in safe spaces.
Summary Description of your Organization
FICA work is governed by 4 main strategic pillars/ thematic areas which are highlighted as follows:
Access to Health Services
Sexual and Reproductive Health for Young People
Capacity Building on Livelihoods and Food Security
Access to Health Services:
FICA seeks to promote healthy lives and well-being for vulnerable children, women and youth in its operational areas through increased access to comprehensive, quality HIV, STI and GBV prevention care and support services; improved knowledge on gender, gender based violence and sexual and reproductive health.
Young Peoples' Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights:
Working with young people is always at the core of FICA programming. The organization seeks to improve access to sexual and reproductive health information by young people; increase access to HIV and SRH services by young people and facilitate transformation of negative gender norms and practices that stimulate GBV through community led advocacy.
The foundations of FICA are set on working with vulnerable children. As a result, within the 5 year strategic period of 2017 to 2022, FICA will be working on improving the capacity of vulnerable children as right holders to proactively claim and access their rights by holding duty bearers responsible to fulfill their duties. FICA also promotes increased awareness among duty bearers on their obligations in promoting and providing services to vulnerable populations as part of their duty-bound mandates.
Capacity Building on Livelihoods and Food Security:
In order to promote a layered and integrated approach to its programing, FICA is working on ensuring that its beneficiaries are also food secure. Strategies include working with vulnerable women and caregivers building their capacity to increase their income levels, and also building the capacity of young men and women to acquire vocational skills for self-sustenance.
