SESSIONS IN THE DROP-IN CENTER

THE SESSIONS ARE CONDUCTED WEEKLY, BIWEEKLY AND MONTHLY IN EACH PROGRAM. THEY ARE DONE BASED ON THE NEED OF EACH COMMUNITY WHERE THE ACTIVITIES ARE PLANNED IN ADVANCE TO ENSURE THE PARTICIPATION OF CLIENTS WHO WANT THE INFORMATION.

OUR APPROACH TO ALL THESE SESSIONS IS ONE OF MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING BRED THROUGH OPEN DISCUSSIONS OF THE TOPICS AND ISSUES, RATHER THAN LIMITING OURSELVES TO MERE LECTURE FORMAT.
