LEAD Expands to Offer Psycho-Social Services for Youth

Thanks to a generous grant from Terre des Hommes and the Psycho-Social Training Institute of Cairo, Youth LEAD will be sending one of its staff members through intensive training to work as a psycho-social worker with Sudanese refugee youth.

Riak Lual, our former Field Assistant in the area of Ain Shams, will be trained in a wide variety of topics including drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, conflict resolution, and life planning in order to enable him to offer one-on-one counseling to his peers and larger awareness raising seminars to the youth community as a whole. He will also serve as an ambassador between the youth and adult communities discussing issues related to youth violence and crime.
