Maendeleo Youth Centre
The Maendeleo Youth Centre is a small-scale, accessible initiative that offers activities and care to vulnerable children and adolescents from the surrounding area: street children, refugees, drug addicts traumatised children, mentally disabled children, etc. Everybody in the centre lives together in a community. The youth are treated as individuals and are encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves as citizens of their local community. Emphasis is placed on highlighting abilities and contributing to the social aspect of life: including commitment to education, development, culture and sports.
