Nutrition Lunch Project for Shiquan Village Primary School and Centre Primary School of Nimei Township

First Phase: Feb-Mar
Second Phase: Apri-May

ApproachMr Yang Banghua, the headmaster is in charge of this project, and the financial affairs are the responsibility of Mr. Tangmao and Ms. Xuxia.

Monitoring MethodExpenditure details were shown in front of the school gate and the village notice publicity board. We also established the family monitoring team, to periodically check the food hygiene and the quality. DORS also monitored the project through phone calls and random visits to receive the feedback from students, families and teachers. DORS also monitored the food price from the market to see whether it is matched or not.

ReviewFind out the problems and try to solve them are the approaches how DORS manage project and improve it. Monitoring the project implementation process is the best way to accumulate experience. The Nutrition Project was running well and has now reached the second round. DORS manager Ms. Jinmei is responsible for the project and she always looks for how to tackle the existed problems and tries to improve the effectiveness of the project. She sets up some concrete standards to better monitor the food hygiene, finance issues and the funding issues and so on. At the same time, DORS receives a lot of valuable experience from the monitoring. What DORS always insists on is to maximize people’s benefit with limited funding, and let all donors see their money goes to the right direction.

ProgressThe evaluation was conducted on 17th May. Review: most available people for this project are elders as the young have gone out to work in urban areas. The project is located in mountainous place with bad accessibility, which affected the pre-project design.

Health Village Project – Chalin Village

Rubbish Bin Project: Health Village Project is implemented in Chalin and Moduo Villages at the same time. DORS manager Ms. Jinmei is responsible for this project. She went to Chalin village to discuss the rubbish bin construction and management issues with villagers. DORS suggested that each household is responsible for the rubbish bin management according to number of households divided with days per month. Some villagers would like to manage the pool according to the amount of the trash each household produces and they would like to try their own way for one month. According to villagers’ willingness, they drafted out the rubbish bin management procedure and signed to follow it. We will assist them to finalize the procedure when they are satisfied. After signing the agreement, they started to implement the project according to the available materials.

No. of Rubbish Bins: 2

Participants: 32 households

Fund spent: RMB2400 from DORS

Fuel-efficient Stove and Bio-gas Project: During April and May, DORS started to conduct the project evaluation together with Villagers. The last phase will be evaluated in June.

Health Village Project-Moduo village

The project is now in the process of implementation by May:

“The story of Peach flower village”: In order to demonstrate how the waste affects people’s health, we wrote a play to illustrate the importance of waste disposal. DORS staff went to village six times to assist villagers and students to rehearse the play.

“Taking trash photographs and sharing the pictures”: We took the photos of some environment which were full of rubbish and some which were clean and nice environment to show to villagers. We asked them to keep their surrounding environment clean through teaching them how to conduct the waste disposal.

Little Guard for Environment Protection : For the long term environment protection, the best way is to educate children. We selected some students from Moduo Primary School to look out for environment protection and observe where the trash comes from, how to clarify what are the reasons of having this rubbish. Afterwards, they shared their findings and knowledge with pictures with other team members, therefore raising all villagers’ environment protection awareness.

Health Village Cultural Event preparation: We will held a Health Village Cultural Event in June, in order to give villagers a direct and concrete impression, we have organised a sharing workshop and excursion for them.

Village Drinking Water Project Reimbursement: DORS project assistant Ms. Haoyue climbed up on the mountain to check the drinking water project as shown below.

Next Report: the two years Health Village Project in Moduo Village will be ended soon, let’s look forwards to the cultural event and sharing workshop.

 Providing Warm Clothes Project

During April & May, Liuyi, DORS volunteer, who is in charge of this project, delivered clothes to Zhaoyuan village, Chalin Village, Maping Village, Nimei Township Centre Primary School, Nimei Township Shiquan Village and Shiquan Primary school, Hengshan Village, He’Ai Village. This is not a simple project just giving out clothes. Before sending these clothes, our volunteer Liuyi has to sort the clothes into categories : for winter or for summer, for women or for men, for which age group and for which village and so on. She has to write down all the details as well. After these, Liuyi needs to prepare a chart and arrange all villagers to take the clothes, taking photographs and so on. When back to the office, she needs to select some good pictures, compose the final report, and then send it to donors. Most of this work was done during weekends or after office hours, by herself.
