Action for Rural Change (ARC)

Plugging service gaps for ‘disadvantaged groups’ is often seen as a classic virtue of NGOs. That virtue is alive and well in the district of Sanoyea, Bong County, where, without a shilling of support from any government agency, the Child Friendly Space (CFS) offers shelter, care and schooling to 56 children orphaned by Ebola or displaced by family crisis and rejected by their communities of origin. The most striking thing about these children is that, despite the cramped conditions, they seem healthy and happy. One of the most striking things about James Fayiah, the Action for Rural Change's founding director, is that he seems to know the name and personal history of every child in his care. James is a school teacher who is passionate with what he does. “We used to go out and visit those who were bedridden, encouraging them to go to hospital,“ he recalls. But, he adds, “In those days there was no treatment. People were scared. Even we ourselves were scared.”
