Youth Residence

Ministry: Shalom Children's Home

The youth residence is a home for the young people who are 18 years and older who grew up in the Shalom Home. These young people are either studying or working, sometimes both. Although the young people contribute towards their living expenses from their salaries, it is not enough to completely cover the room and board expenses associated with the residence. Your sponsorship helps the Shalom Home to be able to cover expenses related to rent, water, maintenance and oversight of the young people.
