Vocation

The children are exposed to different vocational programs that could be of interest to them.  At the completion of such training, they are empowered to practice such vocation.

In addition to the strategies above, we embark on targeted pyschosocial support services and awareness on several issues including gender-based violence, child protection, child’s rights, among others.

Psychosocial support Services

We provide various counselling programs and in some cases spiritual intervention services for different categories of people such as street children, drug-dependent persons, traumatized individuals, victims of human trafficking, sex-workers(Treasures), dysfunctional families and so on.

Sensitization/Awareness Programs in Communities

Periodically, Galilee Foundation conducts public enlightenment activities in communities like schools, market places and residential communities with a view towards the prevention of child abuses, forced labor, human trafficking and other social ills. In some cases, we use the media as a platform for some of our campaigns and public awareness programs.
