Our scheme of work on skills development and service delivery to the people in our community have the potential to improve their social integration, confidence and self-development. Some participants have the prospect to obtain nationally recognised qualifications that would be useful for jobs, small business development and progression to further education. Social integration, skills development through national qualifications and certificates will give our service users better chances in life. Monitoring and evaluation reveal that the activities we deliver enable them to integrate faster and gain skills better in: (i) Functional literacy/numeracy to improve communication; (ii) Music/cultural songs to encourage recreation and social integration. (iii) Mentoring new migrants and referrals to other appropriate organisations. We aim to ensure our service users achieve skills nobody can take away from them. That they receive advocacy and tools to mentor new migrants and contribute positively to the community. Some project photographs are attached for your attention. We are grateful to you for your enormous support.
