About the yellow centre:
The yellow centre is based in an area which has a lot of problems. It’s a very impoverished area that has a lot of issues with sexual assault, gambling and addiction. Many of the children are out of school and there is little opportunity for work and so the people in the community fall into an extreme poverty cycle and a community lacking trust and peace.
It’s important in this are to bring about a peaceful community and so many of the programmes focus on eating together and discussion. Children’s programmes provide informal education and after school tuition, to enable the children to complete their schooling and have the chance of a better future. We also feed the children every day and the adults, when they meet.
Clean water is delivered from the orange centre water programme and hygiene education works to improve the community health. Women’s programmes focus on empowering women and improving their understanding and awareness of domestic violence and trafficking and how to prevent and report it. These groups also teach simple skills which create small businesses and improve the income, such as soap making and basking making. Further education in savings and loans endeavours to make this sustainable.
