To organize regular healing circles and community outreach exercises for the aim of identifying people undergoing stress, trauma and anxiety. 3.To organize intercultural events capable of reducing stress and healing people victims of trauma and anxiety. 4. To equip (empower) trauma survivors in skills such as Agribusiness, Tailoring, Business Entrepreneurship, Acting, Directing, Farming, Graphic Designing, Electricity and Electronics and many more. Our objective is to involve refugees and Malawians to be part of the solution to social problems they are facing daily. We work with: teen and single mothers, Youths affected and recovered from drugs and alcohol abuse, Elderlies, the most vulnerable from the host communities surrounding the Dzaleka Refugee Camp.
