The Youth Well Being Program is open to all children to participate, from preschool to Secondary.  All children are provided free medical care, and allowed to be part of all extra-curricular activities including Girl Guides and Boys Machapro, marimba and dance, as well as use of a developing library.  Only children that are sponsored are able to go to school through our educational sponsorship program.  That donation assures that their school fees are paid and uniform fabric is provided for the child, in addition to the other Youth Well Being services.   If you are able to help an older child which requires more tuition expenses, please see the Older Children information.

The Youth Well Being program is rooted in delivering both Health and Education services.  Educating a child who is sick or helping a child to be well without assisting in their overall educational empowerment, are both limited scopes.  We choose to focus on both health and education for Girls and Boys separately, and together.  We provide a variety of extra-curricular activities helping the children to develop emotionally, mentally and physically as well as  tuition and a growing library for academic achievement.

Improving Facilities has proved to help build stability and prevent disease in the families within the communities.  The W.A.T.E.R.! Program, building Wells and Toilets, brings a great deal of hope.  A hut is the basic structure providing shelter from the elements and having a great impact on family function. A fuel-efficient smokeless stove reduces illness while also reducing the need for so much fuel wood.  Thank you for your support of Facilities Improvement programs.
