This incredible Centre has been running for over 42 years. It helps and supports intellectually impaired men and  gives both the family and the student support by providing a ‘HOME’ environment from which students can come to ‘School’ at the day centre. CCSE helps educate, support and develop the students each day mentally and physically to give them confidence, contentment and make them feel that they can play a productive role in their lives outside the Centre, as well as in society by ‘discovering’ talents and hidden abilities within each of the ‘students’ and use the knowledge to gently steer them towards leading a more meaningful and fulfilled life.

The program begins with a highly nutritious food developed by Nu Skin’s nutritional scientists, known as VitaMeal. You can purchase VitaMeal and choose to donate the food to a third-party non-profit organization that specializes in distributing relief to those suffering from malnutrition and famine. Since 2002, Nu Skin and its sales leaders, customers and employees have donated more than 650 million meals to malnourished children around the world. This amazing initiative not only creates jobs locally but ensures that every child is given at least one nutritional meal a day, but it also ensures that the girls also get an education as they are not always sent to school by their families.
