Situation

Children and teens growing up in low-income, dysfunctional homes are severely disadvantaged, and have less opportunities to their peers. During the summer, when their peers head off to the mountains or sea, they stay behind in the city, with nothing to do- other than stew in their resentment. As a result, when their classmates return to school refreshed from their holiday and ready to learn, they start school with a load of anger and resentment, impeding their education and relationships

Solution

Passion Fruit Project gives the children everything-in one holiday. Exciting trips, interesting workshops, vital life skills, new friends-at Passion Fruit, they get it all. The young people experience new things every day- and go home changed, new people. We are not just providing them with summer occupation- we provide them with a project designed to teach them vital life skills, learn new things, develop new relationships and change them for the better.
