A Better Life

Growing up, Larry often felt alone as he had no one to turn to for advice. His mother suffers from ill health and his father, the sole breadwinner for the family of six, usually works late into the night. As the eldest child, Larry also bears the responsibility of caring for his mother, as well as his younger siblings.

Larry's father does odd jobs and Larry would follow his father to work to earn extra money for their basic needs. Despite trying circumstances, Larry strives to be an agent of change and is determined to work hard, first in his studies and later in his career, so as to break out of the poverty cycle.

Larry goes to The Salvation Army Youth Development Centre (YDC) almost every day and he has built a good rapport with the staff and other youth. Over time, he realised that he has another "family" at YDC; one he could turn to if he requires assistance or a listening ear. Through our support, we have helped to hone his leadership skills and nurtured his creative spirit. Our dedicated team has also guided him towards being a good mentor and a caring role model to his siblings. Larry is now more hopeful for his future and feels empowered to break the chains of poverty.

The Salvation Army hopes to continue supporting and empowering youths like Larry towards achieving their dreams. With your kind support, we can help them pave a way to a better life.
