Dark Blue House
The dark blue centre is situated in the industrial zone where many migrant workers come to find work. There are few prospects here for those who have little education of experience. As a consequence, many people are out of work leading to a high crime rate and violence.
The dark blue’s focus is to provide skills training to men and women, in order to improve chances of employment in the area. Children’s programmes provide informal education and after school tuition to keep them progressing through their education. The feeding programme caters to the children’s nutritional requirements. A safe, large indoor play area keeps the children from harm and potential trafficking.
Women are able to meet as groups to be empowered. To learn skills to start new businesses, to learn how to save and budget money and to learn about health and hygiene.
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 lives and the lives of their community. Here 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.
Computer Training – computer training for young adults gives a competitive edge to their skill set when applying for jobs when they leave school, which sets them up for the future.
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
