At least one in five youth aged 9-17 years currently has a diagnosable mental health disorder that causes some degree of impairment; one in 10 has a disorder that causes significant impairment.The most common mental illnesses in adolescents are anxiety, mood, and behavior disorders. We tried to fill this gap by providing psychological and educational support. However, it is challenging to guarantee that all youths become graduates, especially with the rising cost of materials,tuition, transport.
Our youth are raised in a family structure in houses with about 15 members, along with a couple who serve as their mentors. From nutritionists to psychologists, we offer an integrative approach to healing, educating, motivating, and building resilience, confidence, and independence. We also have a team devoted to providing the necessary tools to improve academic levels, learn life skills, and guide the process of career counseling in order to accompany the kids in building their life projects.
Through education and mental health support, this project nurtures self-confident, independent, and productive individuals. By breaking the cycle of abuse and poverty, Sam Onyemaechi Humanitarian Foundation is empowering new generations of youth to achieve their dreams of owning their own homes, building happy families, and creating their own satisfying life projects. This will certainly contribute to the social development of Southeast, Nigeria by creating a more fair and educated society.
