NFL Cheap Jerseys are Lifeline Counselling Service

Some non-governmental organisations will have to secure alternative methods of funding for their orphan and vulnerable programmes (OVCs) since, according to reports reaching this newspaper, the United States Agency for International Development/Guyana HIV/AIDS Reduction Project (USAID/GHARP) has cancelled such funding.Efforts to contact officials at the donor agency yesterday to determine the reason for this development were futile.Confirmed reports are that Youth Challenge Guyana (YCG), which has operated an OVC programme with USAID/GHARP funding since 2005, is one of the organisations that will now be deprived of substantial funds.YCG’s recently appointed Executive Director,Wholesale Jerseys China, Mr Dmitri Nicholson, in an invited comment yesterday, said that no reason was given by USAID/GHARP for the cancellation of funding.He said that the agency had, some time ago, requested that just cause be given why there should be continuation of funding, a feat he and another senior YCG officials had undertaken with much passion.According to him, the OVC programme was one of the few that the YCG has been able to effectively expand over the years, with some guidance from the donor agency.He said that it was through an e-mail advisory that YCG was informed that funding for the programme will no longer be possible.Reports are that the OVC programme of the Volunteer Youth Corp has also been deprived of the USAID/GHARP funding.Mr Nicholson said that the development will now see YCG having to refer the 70 children to whom it has been offering OVC services to other organisations that operate OVC programmes.Among these organisations, he said, are Lifeline Counselling Service,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Love and Faith,Jerseys From China, and Agape.He said that without the support of the donor agency YCG will only be in a position to continue to help about 20 children, whose skills have been developed through the programme.But in order to achieve this, he said, an earnest effort will be made to secure the help of private sector agencies to fund the programme.YCG will have to re-assign staff and 30-odd volunteers to the other programme areas of the entity, he added.Coordinator of the YCG/OVC Programme,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, Rawl Prescott, said that he was informed that USAID/GHARP,Cheap Jerseys From China, which provided funding on an annual basis, will discontinue support in September, based on the decision it made.He further said that there was no forewarning that the donor agency would have made such a move, adding that the OVC programme will be greatly affected.YCG and USAID/GHARP collaborated in 2005 to streamline the programme. Prescott said that the donor agency promised assistance to facilitate psychosocial support and educational/vocational training through one-and-one literacy and mentoring programmes.The OVC programme commenced in Georgetown and has since expanded to Region Three. It was observed that the mentoring and literacy programme could not have been successful since the children were hungry most of the time.Private sector agencies and individuals were solicited to provide the children with meals.Some parents and guardians were also provided with housing support.The supporting agencies and groups included Splashmins,Discount NFL Jerseys, Communications Students of the University of Guyana, and Food for the Poor, which recently handed over a massive supply of articles to aid the OVC programme, Prescott said.
