  • The Cafeteria Program provides free healthy meals for all participants who attend classes, assuring that they get at least one full meal a day. Volunteers can help in the kitchen and share a delicious meal with the youth each day.
  • Birthday celebrations help youth become aware of their real age and feel special on their birthday. Providing a birth certificate is required for participation in PL programs. At the end of the day's class, we hold a birthday celebration with a cake for each child, most of whom have never had one before. This recognition has motivated youth to acquire their ID cards and other important documents that they will need in the future. Volunteers get to sing songs and eat cake with the kids!
