Gratitude to the Donors

Appreciation and gratitude to our donors. The donations from you enable us to deliver our project activities with useful impact to our service users. With your help we are able to pay the teachers and reimburse our volunteers. The donations facilitate the provision of transport support to some of the beneficiaries.  We are very grateful for the help and the opportunity to up-skill and integrate our refugees/asylum seekers in Liverpool.

Comments from Service Users

Nzozi from DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) said: I like this project but I wish I can get certificate too for a better chance to learn and move forward with lifelong skills and get a good job or have my own small business. Chawla from Afghanistan said: Learning English here and learning to play musical instruments has changed my life and I am very happy with SD.  Sofia from Ethiopia said: Meeting many people in this project is very beneficial  and the music classes are exciting. I can’t believe I can now play Piano and Guitar, amazing but I wish I can get certificate for these. Catherine, UK citizen said: The experience of meeting people from different backgrounds, faiths and networking with them is fantastic. If possible I will like to obtain professional qualification/certificate in music from this opportunity. Zafu from Burundi said: The English literacy/numeracy classes have changed my life and I like the music skills I get with many new people, how about certificate? We are able to obtain these heartfelt  feedbacks from the participants because of your generous donations and we are very appreciative.

Skills Development, Evaluation & Referrals

With the feedback and interest from our service users we have now upgraded this project to include obtaining nationally recognised qualifications/certificates of NCFE/ABRAM as presented in the summary/details of the updated title: “UPSKILL 160 LIVERPOOL MIGRANTS FOR CERTIFICATES & JOBSâ€.We believe that training and skills towards national qualifications/certificates will give them the motivate they need for lifelong skills and better chances in life. Monitoring and evaluation reveals that the activities we deliver enable them to integrate faster and gain skills in: (i) Functional literacy/numeracy to improve communication; (ii) Music/cultural songs to encourage social integration and recreation. (iii) Advocacy and referrals to other appropriate organisations. We aim to ensure our service users achieve skills nobody can take away from the. That they receive advocacy and tools to mentor new migrants and contribute positively to the community. Some project photographs are attached for your attention. Again, we like to thank all the donors for their assistance which is helping us to support migrants for better lives.
