Our Programs

Employment Assistance & Outreach

Families and individuals living in our community are like a unit. We help our people in need by improving their work skills. We assist them in various employment matters and individually reach out to our society members to support them. Services include employment training, rights at work, and computer skills. It is a holistic program that also helps mentally or physically challenged people find a suitable job to cater to their financial needs.
