Our CITY Homes initiative is an expression of our broader CITY program with a focus on under-served teenagers and youth in orphanages and correctional/ remand facilities. Our goal is to renew the minds of the teenagers/ youth in these homes and prepare them for life after the home.
Under approval from the Lagos State Ministry of Youth, Sport and Social Development, HOPE has so far, adopted the Girls Correctional Facility, Idiaraba, Lagos where we have organized several programs and mentorship sessions to facilitate the transformation of the girls. Asides renovating and restocking the library the Facility, we also organized weekly empowerment programs that helped the girls express and exercise the talents and skills of each of the girls.
As we grow, we plan to adopt more of such homes, and organize training programs in these homes, and other homes not adopted by us.
