Talented Academy is a community based skills development initiative working with young children to achieve sustainable personal development.

From August to November, the team aims to train 15 youth on art skills such as soap making, weaving, and connecting them to fields/avenues according to their talents where they can earn income to cater for their educational needs using their talents and skills acquired
