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!
