Yana and her family often have to live with the bare minimum in a society of excess. Treats such as burgers and fries, or eating out, are indulgences reserved for special events, given that the children are given only $2 in pocket money daily. Apart from studying, the older children also help their mother with housework, and to help look after little Yana and fetch her to and from school when Noriah has to work. With a limited income from her part-time job, Noriah’s financial situation also does not allow for contingencies should any of the children fall ill.
A Weekend at TYA
Every Saturday, some 580 children from disadvantaged backgrounds attend our programme which aims to nurture in them positive character and resilience, and to realise their potential.
