Light Blue House

The light blue centre is based in the industrial zone where there is a large migrant population who come to the area looking for work. The community is very transient and unstable. The area has big problems with gangs and human trafficking.

Sewing training and women’s groups are helping to transform the community. Education and feeding programmes assist the children in their chances of passing exams and growing. Because there are so many gangs in this area, there’s a football club on a Saturday morning for young boys, to keep them off the streets. There is also a “walking bus” that allows the children to come to and from the centre safely and an indoor playground for safe play.

Programmes

Creative Education – For those not yet, or for whatever reason not attending school. With our programme children are taught how to think creatively, receive skills in decision making and learn basic education.

Small group is a place where community is built. People get to discuss deep issues, eat together and support one another. Building on a family feeling, and creating a foundation for helping one another.

Empowers women to improve their own lives and the lives of their community. They learn about hygiene, receive anti-violence training, learn how to start a small business, start savings and loans to improve the family income.

We teach women how to sow clothing. They also enrol and complete a discipleship course. After their training, they are free to join the women’s groups and many go on to start their own home-based business.

The feeding programme gives nutritious food to children and a meal for the adults when they come together as a large group or as a family. Everyone deserves a good meal.

Afterschool tuition is a program that we offer. Afterschool tuition helps children with their homework, to stop them from falling behind in their school education.

Football Club – For youth who would otherwise be involved in gang culture. We’ve created a football club for anyone who wishes to play in a safe environment with their friends or family.

A safe playground allows children to play together without fear of being trafficked or injured. Tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst tekst
