Situation

1.YP in these boroughs hardly have opportunities to explore their latent talents & skills. This scarcity causes the young people to get involved in undesirable activities affecting them negatively for future chances in life. 2.YP come from disadvantaged, impoverished homes and are failing in school. This has led to a loss of self esteem, motivation & aspirations & put them at risk of becoming NEET. We aim to provide them with accredited vocational activities, where they too can feel success.

Solution

We believe that out of hours courses aimed to express one’s inner self can inspire good habits & build confident YP. Sew Go for It! will give 60 YP a chance to taste success, which will in turn motivate them to increase their efforts in their formal education too & reduce their risk of becoming NEET. It will also boost their self esteem, promote good habits & neighborliness through donating their creations for charitable causes. This course will also teach them vital numeracy skills.
