Appreciation to the Donors

We wish to use this opportunity to show appreciation to our donors.  Your donations have helped us to continue the delivery of our project activities. We are able to pay our trainers and reimburse our volunteers. The donations assist us to provide transport support to some of the participants.  We are grateful to you for enabling us to integrate and up-skill our refugees/asylum seekers.

Comments from Service Users

Kiama from Angola said: I now have a great opportunity to meet new people, learn with them and gain useful skills for a better future.  Welde from Eritrea said: The chance to gain music skills and learn English is great, working towards a certificate is even better. Burayu from Ethiopia said:The chance to meet people from different backgrounds and make new friends is fantastic, learning English and playing Piano to get a certificate is so nice if I work hard enough. Gamar from Sudan said: Learning to play musical instruments and learning English is very beneficial to my life and I am happy with SD for this opportunity. Nassim from Iran said: The opportunity to meet many people in this project is exciting and making new friends from different faiths and countries is very useful in my life. Said from Somalia said: The new people I have met bring joy to me, the English literacy/numeracy classes have improved my communication skills and the music skills have a positive impact in my life with the prospect for a certificate if I focus. We have been able to obtain these personal feedbacks from the participants because of your generous donations and we are thankful to you.

Skills Development, Evaluation & Referrals

The skills development scheme we provide to our service users have the potential for social integration and self-development with a prospect to obtain nationally recognised professional qualifications that would be useful for jobs, small business development and progression to further education. We believe that social integration, skills development towards national qualifications/certificates will give our service users better chances in life. Monitoring and evaluation reveals 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 social integration and recreation. (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. Thank you very much for your help.
