A theory and our believes behind S.H.A.R.P.

We believed that a sense of belonging would allow an adolescent to enjoy school life, be a helpful member of a family and get more involved in the community.
These activities and involvement would in turn encourage an adolescent to be aware of individual differences, live with hope, appreciate cultural differences, be resilient, develop networking skills and to grow up as a healthy adult with good characters.
