Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Southcentral Alaska

Total Budget: $5,000

Area of Focus: Maternal and child health

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Provide age appropriate activity kits to foster children for use during parental visitations in the SC region of Alaska


The project goal is to improve foster children's interactions with their birth parents during visitations by providing them with kits for fun times during often awkward meetings. By having fun-on-the-run activities for these children to engage in with their parents, it is expected that they will build better relationships with their family and hasten their return to normal family life. This is a joint effort with Beacon Hill Family Services where the Anchorage International Rotary club members would purchase the backpacks and kit items, assemble the kits, and furnish them to Beacon Hill Family Services for distribution to foster children in SC Alaska during 2021-22 in association with other family service centers and the Alaska Office of Children Services. The backpacks would be emblazoned with the AIRC logo. Kits would include age appropriate games and/or building kits such as small bird houses or model cars. AIRC members would select, purchase and assemble the kits, which are budgeted at $20 each, resulting in 250 kits being made available to the foster children. The expressed need is for 15-25 kits per week per center so it is expected that this project may only cover a portion of the year and may need more funding in the future if the feedback is positive as expected.
