Currently, we are running a catch up program for children who have been out of school. We have 50 children coming to the centre for catch up lessons every day Monday to Friday. We also have out of school youth coming on Tuesdays and Thursdays for life skills lessons and Psycho-social support. These children were at the verge of going to the streets but we have managed to prevent this challenge. Then we have parents and care givers every Saturday coming for positive parenting and Psycho-social support. We also conduct Child Protection and HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns in the community. In addition, we are mentoring and supporting girls in the neighboring schools to stay in school. This month we managed to distribute sanitary pads to 120 very vulnerable girls. We are trying our best to prevent and minimize child vulnerability.
