This center is a truly an amazing organization that works on a subject that most people in the world do not acknowledge. I am overjoyed that this center exists – it tremendously benefits all of its young clients, whether they realize it right now or not. Almost all of the staff members that I have worked with exhibit extreme dedication and knowledge in this field.Madeline H.women's empowerment volunteer in Nepal
