GEDE and CBM Partner on Transitional Aid Specialized Services Project


A multi-year plan of action is currently being developed and led by Christian Blind Mission(CBM) to provide all-inclusive mental health, eye health, obstetric fistula and WASH for people affected by insurgency, including people with disabilities in Benue, Plateau and Nasarawa States. The workshop is sponsored by CBM and taking place in Jos, Plateau State from 24 to 27 October, 2018.

Working through a consortium, partners are proposing a three-year project cycle to ensure effective provision of specialised services to vulnerable populations in the 3 states.

Gede will implement Community Mental Health and Development Programme (CMHDP) using the BasicNeeds’ Model targeting 15000 beneficiaries. At the end of the workshop, participants will agree on key approaches, outcome statements, results areas, risk analysis, tasks, timeframes and budgets. The project outcomes will contribute to achieving 4 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
