Pink Centre

About the pink centre:

The pink 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 computer training to improve the chances of work with a decent salary.  After school education helps children through their exams. A sanitary pad machine is being piloted to produce sanitary pads to assist women with menstrual hygiene. An indoor adventure playground provides a safe place for children to play.
