Our approach to partnership and networking remains the key to our effective
and efficient service delivery.
We work with over 100 local NGOs. They have free access to our prevention workshops and training curricula. Creating these partnerships has led to interesting joint projects and improved reporting mechanisms in these organizations and the communities they serve, resulting in an increasing number of referrals to our Social Workers.
