The Cave is a space “tailor made” for secondary and university students. Why is it called The Cave? It is a space for hardworking people, where lots of student work inside the building. It is like a lot of ants working, so it become the "Cave" for them.
As students have a big problem of imbalance time management. They put too much effort into studying, and sacrifice their leisure time. Most of them suffer from stress or even depression. This is the purpose of the centre. It is a co-working space for study and a workshop for entertainment, so to balance student time management of study and entertain. It is a place for them to talk about difficult issues where they can find social workers who can help.
