|Expertise||Open our youth centre & temporary shelter |
Next to the office is a free hall which first became the C.C.U.-youth centre for activities during the day.
From November 2019 on, we are able to host 8-10 boys to stay there while we are building the rehabilitation centre out of town.
It is a place of safety where the teenagers can take a rest, shower and wash their clothes from.
The boys, who stay there, receive 3 meals per day and full care for their daily life.
We pray with them, counsel and encourage them to make them grow in faith and hope to be willing to change their lives.
We see great changes in theirs social skills and brotherhood and daily-life skills through the life at our CCU-shelter and the counselling programmes.
We are connected and work hand in hand with local doctors and hospitals to ensure a professional medical care.
We bought a first aid kit with dressing materials for the youth centre.
Reach out to relatives and families of the children who are living on the street
We want to ensure that we know the full background of each child, by conducting in-depth checks on their home situationsand histories.
Inform parents / guardians about our activities and offer them our support.
Counsel relatives and children and see ways of reuniting and supporting them.
We want to extend our activities to include counselling of relatives as well as thechildren to find ways of reuniting and supporting them.
Support children from home in Education
We were able to resettle children and support them from now on in education. The parents / guidance give their partner contribution for smoothening the way for the child for it’s future.
Purchasing Land and Construction of our rehabilitation centre
To make a real change into their lives, they not only need an emotional distance from the street life, but also a physical. To rehabilitate from all trauma, sustain ourselves through farming and give a safe place, we were able to purchase a land out of town and build the first house, which shall be our “CCU, St. Elisabeth Rehabilitation Centre”.

Some of the youth are too old to go back to school -> Send them to training centres and business schools
To encourage them in participating the duties and activities of the daily life, teach them in gardening, caring for animals or to repair and fix things in the house to find their abilities and to encourage them in those.
Organized, independent living for the older youth, who are living on the street, lead them to support each other and be aware of their duties when living together.
