  • Need

    Need

    This project is trying to solve anti-social problems in such a way that if these people are being engaged and fed, the chances of offending for them would be very minimal rather than leaving them being idle on the streets and hungry.

    Solution

    This project would provide a lot of various activities which would be very enticing to the targeted group and since these activities would get them occupied and busy, the rate of offending or crime would surely be reduced and the community would be a better place to live which thus give the law enforcement agents to be able to attend to other serious cases and even reducing the cost of fighting crime in the society. As a popular saying goes, ''Prevention is better than cure''.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To feed the poor/homeless

    Activities

    » Opening a food bank whereby the poor/homeless in the community can come into the center to have something to eat for themselves (and their families).

    Success of this aim would be reduction or getting rid of the number of hungry/homeless people in the community.


    Aim 2

    Engaging the poor/homeless.

    Activities

    » Keeping vulnerable people engaged by providing sporting activities like table tennis and other indoor games to keep them off the world of crime.
    » Providing job searching facilities which give these group of people chances of looking and finding suitable jobs so that they can be independent.
    » Providing career talks and seminars for the targeted group so that they can have sense of belonging in the community.

    Success of this aim would be many of these targeted set of people would be independent and useful to the community.


    Aim 3

    Crime Reduction.

    Activities

    » We are liaising with the Police to be holding surgeries at the center so that people would be able to know how destructive crime is.

    Getting as many people as possible away from the world of crime and making the community a safe place for all.


  • Impact

    Impact

    This project would bring about bringing people together in the community and making people to be very independent and useful to the community.
    Success of this project would be having at least 4 people a year finding jobs and being independent, getting the level of crime in the community at the minimum level thus reducing the cost of fighting crime and discovering talents from these people in other areas like sports.

    Risk

    Finance is one of the risks that could influnece the success of this project so, donations would be sought to be able to fund this project.Again, volunteers is another risk taken into consideration but going by the size of our organisation, this has been taken care of.
    Another risk that could influence the success of the project is the availability of seasoned and experienced personnel for this project but this too has been taken care of by seasoned practitioners in our society.

    Reporting

    Donors would be reported to by good communication channels such as emails and other acceptable means of communication. These reports would be formally done and concise, precise and straightforward.
