Project Breakthrough: SKHM Youth Programme

Youths in the red light area who are victims of any form of abuse in their lives repeat the same cycle in their surroundings, thereby propagating a cycle of violence. Since its inception, SKHM's goal has been to break that cycle of violence by prioritizing education and psychological intervention. In late 2014, Project Breakthrough was formed formally.
