Promote Modern Agriculture
To increase agricultural production which would lead to economic growth, create employment opportunities and alleviate poverty
The FutureHope aims at enhancing the food security position through supporting the small and medium-Scale farmers by providing innovative and exceptional solutions to the problems and difficulties facing the agriculture, in particular, and the food security, in general. We are focus on establishing stable agricultural positions and sustainable food production and avoiding the loss of food, whether due to the lack of production, bad warehousing, transporting and marketing the food or due to the style of food consumption, through encouraging people to adopt a good consumption.
We introduces small and medium-scale farmers to new agricultural production technologies. We work to increase rural employment through the expansion of labor-intensive crops, such as cocoa, cassava, maize, rice, and diversification to other agricultural and handicraft products to increase farmers’ incomes.
We helps farmers’ groups improve strategic plans, management practices, business and marketing, financial systems, and access to credit.
We works with the Nigeria Ministry of Agriculture to establish and strengthen agricultural trade policy to support food security, and provide training on agricultural export regulations.
The FutureHope intends also to create additional employment opportunities in agriculture. Therefore, we enlighten youths and young adults in the interland to embrace agriculture and form themselves into cooperatives that give them more voice and access to funding rather than pursuing white collar job unsuccessfully. Not only will this generate employment, but it will also add value.
Support for families in needs
Family Food Bank Service
Poverty eradication through empowerment based on access to food. The family food bank is one of the service that we run to help support families and reduce the impact of child poverty and malnutrition. This service provides support to families that experiencing short term financial hardship which means that they are unable to buy food or are left with a choice between paying for food or another basic necessity.
How We Can Help - we help those who are referred to us by professionals working in the community, who identify families in need. Families are then directed to one of our distribution centres.
SHELTER HOMES - For the homeless
Homelessness influences every facet of a child’s life - from conception to young adulthood. The experience of homelessness inhibits the physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and behavioural development of children.
This service provides support to homeless families. They are placed in stable housing with appropriate services as soon as possible. Homeless parents and children receive priority to all our services and programs.
Health and Educational Services
The HES is another critical segment and focus of the FUTUREHOPE poverty alleviation programmed. We will assist disadvantaged families particularly, children to attain good health and education.
Health on health intervention, we will only assist cases that are referred to us by medical practitioners, thus beneficiaries cases must have been evaluated by a qualified medical practitioner from an approved public or private medical institution.
No beneficiary will access more than 5% for a diagnosed condition at a given period, if there be extreme cases that warrant more resources, the FUTUREHOPE team will seek necessary approvals. It is important that more beneficiaries are able to access the HES.
We will also partner with government and private agencies on immunization, water/borehole sinking, first aid kits for schools and general medical education as preventive medical approaches to ensure that families and the entire community has adequate basic hygiene information.
II - Education
Our education intervention will be for Secondary education only to start with. We will provide financial towards the school fees and books of promising students in Secondary schools. Beneficiaries will be recommended by their school administrators, and Health/Educational prospective beneficiaries must have past record of very good academic performance.
We will only consider students with past class record card performance within the first to fifth position, other considerations will be referred to the Board committee for approval. The beneficiaries will access a maximum of 5% or less of the dedicated budget for the HES programme. No single family will access both the Health and Educational resources at the same time/ period.
We believe strongly that with proper education and stable health conditions, poverty can be reduced significantly. When people get to know their skills, energy and abilities and put it in the right place, they can improve their standard of living. They can rely on themselves to find jobs that suit their abilities.
Support for children
Talent and Empowerment Development
We believe that everyone has talent and are gifted in one way or the other, however lack of development and none usage of the latent talent, gifts and potentials has led to abject poverty.
We will empower and assist recommended applicants to acquire needed skills, develop their gifts and use such gifts positively in their community to earn a living, create employment and lift the society. We will encourage beneficiaries to go for apprenticeship or vocational schools and we will support them with basic requirement to enhance their learning and skill acquisition.
We will also support individuals that may not have basic tools to practice their vocations to ensure that they are established and contribute to the society
Children Survival Program
Tailoring this program to meet the needs of low-income pregnant women and families with infants and toddlers in the community and may select among program options specified in the performance standards (home based, center-based, combination, and locally designed options). The FUTUREHOPEUK aim to save lives of children with health issues and complications.
In the process of accomplishing the four cardinal pillars of the services described above, we will also actively support and latch on our international exposures and contacts to do the following;
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
(i.e. basic infrastructures) assist our partners and stakeholders in providing clean water, electricity supply, hospitals, cooperatives, community banks etc.
BEHAVIORAL MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
We will introduce behavioral management programs and rebuild the confidence and determination of youths to believe in themselves. This will be accomplished through facilitation of Leadership/Motivational Workshops to help erase inferiority complex and availing necessary knowledge and skills of trades that will make them competitive in their particular productive field.
BIRTH CONTROL INTERVENTION
If the birth control interventions could be increased, poverty and childhood education, health, problems would decline.
Birth control increases economic growth because of fewer dependent children, more women participating in the workforce, and less use of scarce resources
The objectives are as follows:
To assess the effects of interventions to promote contraceptive use and reduce child poverty.
Interventions will be grouped into three categories as follows:
1. Counseling: health education; contraceptive counseling; group-based or individual-based counseling; family planning counseling with visual and auditory components or interaction between us and service users.
2. Contraceptive promotion: contraceptive counseling with free provision of contraceptive methods;
3. Interventions with multiple approaches: a combination of counseling intervention, free provision of contraceptive methods, male partner involvement or other measures.
