Soup kitchens provide freshly-cooked, nutritious meals to the vulnerable and abandoned in six different areas of the city as well as in some of CMCT’s special projects. Surveys are carried out to identify those who are truly vulnerable, and they are then provided with a warm meal once a day. Staff spend time talking to the beneficiaries, many of whom are then plugged into long-term programs that will help them stand on their own feet.

CMCT expanded my horizons. I have been able to increase my skills through training programs for which I was sent. I began my career as a teacher, but CMCT gave me the opportunity to be a designer, a leader, and a mentor to women from difficult backgrounds.

CMCT has given us so many opportunities. It has always been ‘home,’ not just a hostel. I think every sponsor with CMCT should know that thanks to their support, children are getting a chance to realize their fullest potential.
