New centre in Seychelles to rehab youth with discipline, social problems

A new centre aimed at rehabilitating youth with disciplinary and social problems will be constructed next year, said a top official of the Ministry of Family Affairs.

The Youth Hope centre will be located at Cap Ternay along the coast of the Port Glaud, a western Mahe district. No details on the cost of the project were given.

“The goal of the project is to help young people aged 13 to 15 in great difficulty, young people for whom there were no answers to their problems and who were drifting into anti-social activities,” said Linda William-Melanie,  the principal secretary of the Department of Social Affairs in the Ministry of Family Affairs on Tuesday.
