OVERVIEW OF OUR CURRENT PROJECTS

Championing a Stronger Community

 

Championing a Stronger Community project will help community members improve their confidence to communicate in daily life through English language courses. Basic career knowledge, CV writing, and skill development training will be offered to young (18+) people by our career progress workshops, which will build their confidence to apply and get them ready to join the job market. The project will also address the loneliness problem in the community. Our befriending sessions will include arts and crafts, indoor games, storytelling, talks and yearly day trips with clients. This will build a social network and companionship and encourage them to contribute to society. The importance of maintaining mental and physical wellbeing will also be addressed in this project by professional health trainers through regular sessions. In addition, our parenting workshops will benefit the migrant parents, who are struggling to raise their children in Western culture. Fun activities like cooking and baking sessions will also be a part of this project.

 

Enhancing Employability of Young People

This project is planned exclusively with the disadvantaged young population from all ethnicity backgrounds in mind. Youth who are struggling to find jobs due to poor skills, housing conditions, family situations and financial crisis that led them into any form of disadvantage. Troubled youth and underachieving high-school and college graduates are also primary targets for this project.


Activities will include two workshops every month. The beneficiaries will be trained for numeracy and communication skills, IT skills, mentoring, basic accounting, writing a CV and cover letters, presentation skills, job searching skills, interview skills including volunteering and internships in partner organisations. This will elevate their self-confidence and give purpose to their future career prospects.
