In 2013, UNWG equipped a kitchen and dining room enabling handicapped children to eat at the Caritas leisure centre “Wonderful Hands” and also acquire life skills.

Through this project, 25 children with physical and mental disabilities visit the centre on a daily basis, thereby battling isolation and creating independence.   In addition to educational and vocational training, they are taught how to look after themselves through shopping, cooking, baking, serving, tidying up and doing laundry.

Handicrafts made by the children are sold and the proceeds reinvested in materials, giving them a sense of achievement.  In addition to services for the disabled, Caritas has reached out to children that are disadvantaged, orphaned or victims of abuse providing hot meals and an opportunity to receive information, assistance and improve their plight.
