Boys' Residential Shelter
- Vietnam -
We opened our Boys’ Shelter, affectionately known as the Boy’s Sunshine Nest, to provide a safe and caring environment for young street boys who were living on the streets and at risk of commercial exploitation, drug trafficking and the threat of violence. The Shelter aims to provide a safe haven; a place where the boys are looked after. We give them the opportunity to regroup and regain confidence. We offer them the tools they need to develop their own identity; the time to build the personal strength they need to achieve their goals.
The Boys’ Shelter was completely refurbished in 2013 to make it more comfortable for our boys. As part of the programme, the boys receive an education and vocational training. They have the opportunity to choose from a range of apprenticeship courses and classes and can learn to express themselves creatively through our Sunshine Music and Arts and Sunshine Sports Programmes.
