  • Need


    Many of these youth have been unable to attend school or have left at an early age. This means they are very unlikely to be employed and have a chance to break out of the poverty cycle. We are particularly committed to the process of deinstitutionalization and supporting vulnerable people to become integrated in main-stream society with every opportunity to
    lead full lives.


    Lotus Caring Hands (LCH) provides free computer training for impoverished young people to engage in educational activities.

    Computer Training and Employment Support Services (CTESS) aims to give the most disadvantaged young people a second chance in life, by giving them the skills and confidence to find a job and live independently
