Feeding Scheme

Feeding Scheme
We found many of our children were not getting a decent meal in the day, this required us to start a feeding scheme for all our children. Each child is fed when they come to the Academy for training and lifeskills. (view small | med | large | orig)

Life Skills Training

The children have life skills training each session they come to the Academy. This helps them make positive choices in their lives and prepares them for a bright future. (view small | med | large | orig)
