We offer our gratitude and appreciation to the donors for their help. Your generosity is well recognised and has given us great opportunity to assist the refugees/asylum seekers in our community. The donations allow us to pay for some digital equipment, 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, transition to online teaching/learning in the Covid-19/Post-Covid-19 pandemic era.

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 pandemic has been challenging and forced us to change the way we operate. We will continue to transition and cope with the challenges, to improve our service delivery safely. We appreciate your help and we are very grateful.
