Through collaborations with public schools and social workers with medical backgrounds, this project provides critical information about HIV/AIDS, drug abuse, prostitution, violence, and early marriages. The project provides mentorship through the trainings to help underprivileged youth be exposed to a positive environment to grow into responsible adults.
