Green Centre

About the green centre: 

The green centre is located in a migrant area where people come hoping to find work in the industrial zone.  There are huge problems with alcohol and drug abuse and human trafficking.

The centre provides an education programme for  children who are out of school.  After school education helps children through their exams.  The feeding programme provides nutritious food for the children and there is also a safe playground for the children to play.

Women’s groups educate local women in health and awareness of trafficking and domestic violence.  They also learn leadership skills, become part of a savings programme, learn skills to make small businesses and how to care for their families.  The sewing programme teaches women to sew clothes and in turn, many set up a small home business when they finish training.

Programmes:

Creative education – for those not yet, or for whatever reason not attending school, children are taught how to think creatively, receive skills in decision making and learn basic education.
After School Tuition – after school tuition helps children with their homework to stop them falling behind in their school education.
Feeding Programme – the feeding programme gives nutritious food to children and a meal for the adults when they come together as a large group.
Safe Playground – a safe playground allows children to play together without fear of being trafficked or injured.
Women’s Groups -women’s groups empower local women to improve their own lives and the lives of their community.  With a safe place to learn about hygiene, receive anti-violence training, learn how to start a small business, start savings and loans programmes to improve the family income and future prospects and to have a voice in their community.
Sewing Programme – the sewing programme teaches women how to make clothing. During the course they also enrol and complete a discipleship course.  Once their training has finished, they are free to join the women’s groups and many go on to start their own small home-based business.
