Charity profile

Youth With Diabetes has 4 focus areas:

1.  Educational weekend camps: Children are empowered in how to successfully manage their diabetes and also receive emotional support in dealing with a life-long, chronic condition.

2.  Youth leader training: dynamic young adults and teenagers are trained to serve at camps and be ambassadors in their local communities.

3.  School programme: We train teachers about diabetes and how to support a child with diabetes in their class.

4.  Other initiatives: A facebook support group; Family support days and awareness on World Diabetes day (14 Nov).

Our lollipop logo dispels misconceptions about diabetes and supports our slogan: 

                                                      “Life can be sweet”.

YWD relies solely on donations and sponsorships to achieve our objectives and save lives!
