The 2nd Chance Program (previously known as Back to school program) is conducted by PT Foundation to improve the quality of life and well-being of the urban low income people as well as HIV infected and affected people. It provides psycho-social academic and welfare support to such community (children) in Klang Valley and surrounding area.
