In addition to core mental health programmes,
we also provide support to local communities,
staff, residents and families.
Our biggest initiative is the Helping Hands School in Mbukwa, very close to Amaudo Okopedi. The school provides primary education for 100 local children. We regularly contribute towards teacher salaries and also provide training and resources.
We also sponsor a number of individuals, primarily children of residents, to ensure ongoing access to education at every level.
We are also currently piloting a new initiative where we provide selected individuals with microfinance and ongoing mentoring and advice for small local start-up businesses. Our initial priority will be to assist members of our self help groups.
