LIFT UP POVERTY LIMITED
Croydon has experienced a sharp increase in the number of young people unemployed and deprived of government benefits. Mostly from Black and Asian Minority background and are socially excluded because of their background or any criminal offense committed in the past. Most are Not in Education Employment or Training. They are from low income families who lack of work experience or appropriate skills and qualification required to further education or become job employable. Also lack English.
In order to tackle these we have set out some programmes which we believe will if not eradicate this issue will reduce it to the barest minimum because doing nothing is not an option as the underprivileged minorities will continue to be a burden on the government and the society as a whole. We will organise sessions of computer technical support training, Math an numeracy courses. also English classes to boost their written and spoken skills preparing them to further education or find work.
Improve quality of life for Young children in Croydon, who struggle against multiple difficulties,
Activities» Run twelve month ICT training, math and numeracy classes also teach English languages to none English speaking to help them further their education.
Success will be that at least sixty underprivileged children and young people will learn new skills, perform well in English and further their education or be employable.
In the long-term the project aims to lift participants and their families out of poverty. Support will be tailored to individual needs, until then disadvantaged families will be encouraged to take advantage of the back to work support , assistance find appropriate job and begin working towards self-sufficiency. We will demonstrate the success of this project by monitoring the number of young people's activities after completing the program. We will continue working closely with them for progress
There is risk that not all targeted youth and young people would like to attend the training , some may start bu will not finish. We have pot in place a team of volunteers mentors who will talking to them and advice on advantages or benefit of acquiring these skills and remind them of how tackle problems they are facing now and get ready for a sustainable future.
Donors of this project will receive a quarterly email report on the project detailing the ongoing and forthcoming activities, and any necessary changes that have been made to the project plans.
