One Year in Mission: C.E.A.L.S. - Centro Educacional Asistencial La Salle in Beira, Sofala, Mozambique
Centro Educacional Asistencial La Salle (C.E.A.L.S.) is an educational support center for over 600 public school students who need additional academic assistance. The children come from a particularly poor area of Beira, where they otherwise would have spent most of their time after school roaming the streets. In collaboration with the Lasallian University of Brazil, C.E.A.L.S. leads a program on information and treatment of HIV/AIDS. The Center also offers parenting classes for adults.
