The Western Society for the Upliftment of Children seeks to develop a
sustainable programme that will assist the marginalized youth of our
communities to achieve their full potential: physically, emotionally,
socially and spiritually.

children is this exemplary agency called Western Society for the Upliftment
of Children. As a part of our effort we offer up-to-date numeracy and literacy
modules along with Sewing, Craft, Carpentry and Electrical Installation as part
of our pre-vocational areas. In addition we offer blazing trail Interior Decorating,
Barbering, Information Technology, Cosmetology and Videography as part of our
special evening program.

work, dedication and commitment despite the limited resources.
