Mustard Seed Youth Home launch Diversified Learning Project for children to open up more opportunities in learning for them. Through learning, children are able to know more about their own inner strengths and rich their experiences in life. Children will be put in small groups while learning and teachers will assist children to build up social skills and enhance their social adaptation capacities.


Children in Mustard Seed Youth Home are from dysfunctional families and before they are sent to Youth Home, most of them are drop out of school or delay in education. Therefore, they don't have the motivation to learn and also don't have the confidence in learning. However, Mustard Seed Youth Home has the heart to encourage these children to at least finish the compulsory education.

According to Posner and Vandell (1994) research, after-school care is a way to help vulnerable children to meet the needs of family comfort and guide adolescents on the right path. Thus, Mustard Seed Youth Home set tutoring classes for children and focus on subjects such as Chinese, English, math, natural science, and vocational subjects, etc. to enhance their learning effectiveness and confidence.

In the meantime, we also provide children opportunities to learn talents in order to drive out their potentials and talents such as painting, dancing, drums, bass, electric guitars, keyboards, etc. On the other hand, we hope children can put more attention and energy into sports which is what they are good at. Therefore, we also provide children with basketball, table tennis, swimming, marathon, softball, cycling, football and other sports courses. We hope that children can establish positive attitudes and habits in life through it.

Looking for the Destiny

Sam came to Mustard Seed Youth Home when he was 10. In the beginning, he needed others' assistance to control his behaviors and emotions in many ways. Over the years, he has improved on his school performances and learning habits because Mustard Seed Youth Home brings in professional resources and tutoring services. He now often asks for teachers’ help in order to have more understanding of each subject and get more knowledge. Sam wishes he could be the role model of his younger brother and together fight for the future.
