Seminars on Love, Sex and Marriage for Youth
The youth because of the influences of the secular western media have developed unwholesome attitudes and understanding of love, sex and marriage. Therefore many have developed various destructive habits such as drinking, smoking, drug habits and promiscuous life styles. To combat this we conduct one-day and two-day seminars for youth ages 16 and above.
Counseling services are extended to couples needing counsel and guidance. We also conduct marriage preparation sessions for couples to be married.
