Parental Education

FHIDO has been engaged to achieve awareness creation and alter practices and behavior in a positive way with in the community on various issues like parenting skill, child development and others social issues through undertaking coffee ceremonies and home visits. In all its project areas, regular coffee ceremony programs have been organized with the use of ECD volunteers which enabled to address about 6000 parents/guardians. The coffee ceremony sessions have been undertaken during school time, whereby the sessions proceed while parents wait to pick their children from schools; at Village level with the participation of community setting and home level where volunteers provide need based one- to- one mentoring and coaching support to target families. As a result of the coffee ceremony, FHIDO registered a number of achievements in the awareness and practice of parents with regard to child care and development and participation. It also improved parent’s communication skills with their children and contributed for families to provide guidance for their children’s so that children become disciplined, respectful and love their parents.
