Thy Helper is a non-profit organisation created to reach out to the vulnerable, especially the youth, widows and the aged, empowering them:
- By sponsoring the education of the youths through grant disbursement and skill acquisition.
- Or through its musical scheme that enables them to be more productive, reliable and dependable in their various communities.
- By providing support in cash and kind for widows and the aged.
Why the Youth?
The period when an individual is mostly engulfed by his/her need to explore his/her individuality, have a say or find their voice is a critical period in one’s life. This period defines the youth.
The youth wants to learn, connect and experience. They have a biological drive that helps them want to identify with others, gain first-hand experience and mastery.
If they are found in a community with non-existent opportunities, youths find themselves among peer groups, who subsequently have a huge influence on their personal development, life and future choices.
By engaging the youths, we are showing them that they are a valued part of the community and their opinions matter. Our goal is to create a platform which gives them a chance to voice their opinions, ideas and concerns, as much as we support their dreams.
