> Identification and assistance in the resolution of priority problems (insufficient revenues, lack of documentation, health issues, conflicted family relationships, addictions, malnutrition, school drop-outs etc.)
> Individual counselling and support through home-based follow-up with weekly visits for 6 to 9 months
> Counselling in social guidance centres
> Referral to suitable services available in the neighbourhood.

They further continue their progress without our help, as shown in impact studies led 6 months after the end of counselling.
