Appreciation to the Donors

Our compliments to the donors for their help. Your support is appreciated and very useful for the delivery of our project activities. Your funds enable us to pay our trainers, reimburse our volunteers and provide transport support to some  participants. We are appreciative of your support for integrating and up-skilling our refugees/asylum seekers.

Comments from Service Users

Fatou from Gambia said: SD has changed my life with good English training and I am happy, more confident to communicate with people. Mahisah from Iran said: Learning English with SD is improving my life and making me a better person. It will be good if I get a certificate then move on to college. Elyas from Eritrea said:Learning English and Music with SD is very good for me and  meeting many people from different countries is fantastic. I have now made many friends from different countries, from different backgrounds and faiths. Winta from Eritrea said: Learning Sheet music is a great opportunity for me  and I am happy to gain this knowledge from SD. Great that I can now play Piano and speak better English to communicate. Adrian from El-Salvador said: SD has made it possible for me  to learn how to play Piano and meet different people from different places. I now have opportunity to improve my English language which is great.  Nichola from Chile said: I am grateful to SD for this opportunity to learn Keyboard and Sheet music. We are able to obtain these personal feedbacks from the participants because of your generosity and we are thankful.

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.
