Appreciation to the Donors

Our appreciation and gratitude for the support and contribution from all the donors. Your generosity has given us the opportunity to assist refugees/asylum seekers in our community. The donations allow us to pay our trainers, reimburse our volunteers, acquire PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) and provide transport support to some of our service users. Your support helps us to integrate and up-skill our refugees/asylum seekers as well as transition to online teaching/learning in the Covid-19 pandemic era.

Comments from Service Users

Yusuf from Afghanistan said: I am very happy to have found SD in this Covid-19 season, I now have a better opportunity to learn English and make friends with people from other nations and backgrounds, including learning to  interact virtually by Zoom. Yasim from Pakistan said: Learning  English literacy/numeracy with SD staff is good. Also doing Sheet Music and cultural songs with people from different countries and backgrounds is exciting. Esheth from Ethiopia said: Both the staff and volunteers of SD do help me in learning English and provide me with opportunity to gain digital skills.  Izelden from Sudan said: I do Piano keyboard training and Sheet Music from SD staff/volunteers, they give me confidence and joy in my life.  Tedros from Eritrea said: I am happy with SD and the opportunity to improve my skills in: Literacy/numeracy and digital competence that can help me to transition to higher education.  Zabi from Iran said: Since I found SD in Liverpool, I have been using the opportunity to improve my skills in various ways and gain more confidence in myself. Our organisation (SD) is able to acquire these individual feedbacks from our beneficiaries because of your generous donations and we are grateful to you. 

Our scheme of work on skills development and service delivery to the people in our community have the potential to improve their: risk assessment in Covid-19/Post-Covid-19 era, social integration, confidence and self-development. Some participants have the prospect to obtain nationally recognised qualifications that would give them better opportunity for jobs, small business development and progression to further education. Social integration, skills development through accredited 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. Covid-19 epidemic is challenging and forcing us to change the way we operate. We will continue to transition and cope with the challenges, to improve our service delivery safely. We fully recognise your support and we will continue to appreciate your support.
