Our education programmes are complimented by services that address basic needs: warmth, safety, nutrition and sanitation. Our centres provide a range of services, including hot meals and showers.

community outreach

We work closely with local communities to foster long-term support. We advocate for integration, support and inclusion for all.

 

empowering individuals

Our programmes and projects are led by those accessing them. We build the capacity of women and youth to teach classes, manage centres and gain vocational skills.
