Leadership Training and Psychosocial Support

The development of the HBEF Leadership Training and Psychosocial Support Programme was prompted by the need to help the sponsored children overcome povery-related barriers inhibiting their educational success.

The Leadership Training and Psychosocial support Programme focuses on groups as well as individual sponsored students. It aims at equipping the sponsored children with leadership and vital life skills, as well providing psychological support necessary for the development of an all-rounded person.

Leadership training and life skills coaching workshops, are held during the April, August and December school holidays. Dubbed "Reaching for the STARS" (Strategies to Achieve Remarkable Success), the students get to understand themselves, their potential, and more importantly, the game of life.
