Headline: ASIA/SINGAPORE – The work of ” Boys’ Town”: The growth of young people to build a better society
Singapore – “Boys’ Town”, managed by the Catholic youth pastoral movement “YouthReach”, activated by the Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore for needy and vulnerable young people and children, has celebrated its 10th anniversary of activity of animation and care of young people. As Fides learns, the Boys’ Town institution is a social institution founded in Singapore in 1948 by the Montfortian Brothers of Saint Gabriel, for residential assistance, foster care and even clinical intervention on young people in need or sick young people. In 2010, the YouthReach movement began to enter and work within the institute, whose programs were gradually expanded to school services, reception and street awareness services, sports and expressive arts programs, psychological and professional counseling services for children in need, aged between 10 and 24, without any distinction of religion, social class, ethnicity, language, culture, nationality.
