Appreciation to the Donors

Our gratefulness and appreciation to our donors.  Your donations have enabled us to deliver our project activities with positive impact to our service users. We are able to reimburse our volunteers and pay the trainers. The donations assist us to provide transport support to some of the service users. We thank you for the help to enable us to integrate and up-skill refugees/asylum seekers in Liverpool.

Comments from Service Users

Jamal from Eritrea said: This project enables me to learn new skills with the opportunity to get a certificate to help me move forward to a better life for a job or create my own small business when I want. Ali from Iraq said: Great that I am able to meet people from different countries, make friends and it is amazing that I can now play Piano and even  get a certificate for that if I work hard enough. Rafik from Afghanistan said: Learning to play musical instruments and learning English have a positive impact on my life and I am happy with SD for this opportunity. Helen from Sierra Leone said: The opportunity to meet many people in this project is exciting and very beneficial to me especially making new friends in the community. Soud from Syria said: The people I meet bring joy to my life, the experience of English literacy/numeracy classes have improved my life too and music skills are great. Naser from Iran said: Networking with people of different backgrounds and faiths is very good and learning new skills with a chance to get a certificate is rewarding, thanks to this project. We obtained these individual  feedbacks from the participants because of your generous donations and we appreciate your support.

Skills Development, Evaluation & Referrals

Based on previous surveys and feedbacks from our service users we have combined social integration with skills development to obtain nationally recognised professional qualifications that would be useful for jobs and small business development. Our belief is that social integration, training and 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 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. Thanks again for your help
