Train up a child in the way he should go:
And when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

Why We Help

Children from disadvantaged families often return to an empty home or are left at home with little or no adult supervision and guidance. Commonly, their parents are struggling to make ends meet. Some come from single or absent-parent families. Facing issues common in low-income families, the children inevitably suffer from lack of adult guidance.

What We Do

CITY reaches out to primary school children from vulnerable families by providing a positive and supportive learning environment, imparting good values, building strength of character and nurturing resilience.

How We Help

CITY staff and volunteers supervise, guide the children with their schoolwork, and impart good character through teaching, modelling and peer interactions. To support these children and their families, CITY runs two Service Groups:
A holistic after-school care programme from Primary 1 to Primary 6. Currently we are running one student care centre with about 100 children, 50% of whom are under financial assistance.

A weekly 2-3 hour programme in primary schools for children to learn good values, benefit from mentoring and meaningful activities in a fun, learning environment. Currently, we run 12 Befrienders Clubs free of charge, for underprivileged, marginalized and vulnerable children. Additionally, through our Befrienders Alumni, we continue to build support, relationships and strengthen rapport with those who have graduated from primary school.
