And when he is old, he will not depart from it.
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
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 10 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.
