The parents and members of the community receive basic medical help, medicine and even a food basket for the family. By conducting an awareness talk it is imperative we communicate the possibility of implicating the parents and community leaders that they will be the agents of change most influential within the students. During this time, with the help of professionals, we can offer solutions for challenges emotional, financial and spiritual within each family.
