Mentoring and Coaching
This session provides a cordial environment where our trained volunteers are given the opportunity to impact the lives of our targets through our one-on-one mentoring sessions, and group interactions.
School dropouts, and other unemployed community members are provided with various skills, and training in liquid soap production, candle production, bead making, and tie & dye production by our competent volunteers with the main aim of improving their employability skills, and standard of living.
We provide educational materials, and infrastructure as well as other donations obtained from the general public to our target communities. We also provide a black board painting exercise for every school since we know its importance in the classroom.
Health Screening and Workshops
Together with our health partners, and volunteers, we provide health screening, and workshops based on the community’s health needs. Hand-washing exercises are also included in this session.
