  • Need

    Need

    The project will engage with deprived children and young people to take part in activities that will help them to reduce isolation and boredom, anti-social behavior and to promote a more cohesive community and educational knowledge during the summer holiday break. We are targeting children from low income families, single parents. We aim to encourage them to eat healthy food and lead more healthy lifestyles and educational program.

    Solution

    The project will allow children and their families time to access a wide variety of interesting, and creative activities they would normally be unable to attain during the long summer holidays.
