Youth Development Programmes

The youth of today face many challenges.  Vulnerable youths are at a particular disadvantage because of a lack of resources, guidance, self-esteem and a sense of belonging. Our programmes seek to enhance the quality of their lives by bringing about personal enjoyment, enriching their perspectives, encouraging intellectual stimulation, and fuelling an entrepreneurial mind-set. These youth development programmes promote emotional/social well-being by granting the opportunity for youth to perform and grow through creativity and self-expression. 

Tutoring and Mentorship

Guidance is an important aspect in youth development. We provide academic support and life skills workshops to help the youth achieve their future goals. Our workshops include, career guidance, HIV/AIDS awareness, business and leadership skills, children's rights and abuse awareness.
