“I was in the midst of a divorce. It was a very depressing and stressful period for me as I had to work and take care of my children. CCS supported me through their Befriending Programme during this toughest season of my life. I had a befriender who came alongside me to provide advice, counsel and the emotional support I needed.

The Cornerstone Development Initiatives School Allowance helped to pay for my children's educational expenses. My eldest


daughter also enrolled in the Mentoring Programme, and it was a great help to her as she found a mature and wise mentor to walk her through the emotional turmoil caused by my divorce. I saw tremendous change in my eldest daughter as she became more confident and found direction in her life. I am really grateful to CCS for being there for my whole family.”
