Adolescents club

What does your company do?

We support adolescents born with chronic illnesses.we constantly encourage them not to give up and push despite their daily challenges. We do support groups, home interventions and individual counseling sessions. We provide basic toiletry items for the kids to boost their confidence and we occasionally provide food parcels so that they don't take medication on a hungry stomach. Our main aim is to holistically support these adolescents so that they can be clinically stable.

What is your biggest success?

Seeing the Adolescents in our programmes being clinically stable and taking their medication well. Seeing their behavioral change and them achieving their dreams and goals is very fulfilling.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

When 2 adolescents passed away two years back. It was so painful. It caused a bit of panic amongst the other adolescents but through the individual counseling sessions we were able to stabilize them
