The FRIENDS Project was initiated in 2001 to uplift the lives and the wellbeing of children living on the streets. We have been serving to assist such children through two residential programmes and one Drop-in Centre. However, at present, the two residential facility projects have been phased out while the Drop-in Centre continues to assist children who are either from the streets or are prone to fall into street life.
The Drop-in Centre is open 5 days a week excluding the weekend. Children arrive at the center after school (roughly around 2.30 pm) and are provided lunch, tuition, homework assistance, skill building activities etc. During the holidays the center is open from 8.30 am - 5.00 pm. The project was launched to help the children whose parents cannot afford care for their children while away for work.
