Crowdfunder is waiving its platform fees for community and charity crowdfunding projects during the coronavirus crisis. The Covid-19 epidemic could affect millions of people in the next few weeks.
These are unprecedented times but together, we are stronger, and the response is coming from communities across the country.
Volunteer groups are springing up to tackle the logistical problems faced in our communities – but they need urgent support. That's where we come in.
Our aim is to tackle knife crime. The way that we do this is by taking youths away from the violence, away from the gangs , and offering them courses to inspire them to further their education. We also offer workshops and events to connect the youth and to teach them life skills that they would not learn about in schools. we aim to be a surrogate for much needed youth clubs that the youth of today no longer have access to.
The project is new as we will be able to help out youths more effectively. This is because the funding provided will allow us to help the youths easier through using newer devices to support learning. We will be able to help many more youths as we can expand and utilise more resources with the funds provided.
Through this project we can give the youth life skills that they can practice daily. Life skills such as critical thinking, public speaking and teamwork are implemented in the courses. Through courses such as Money Management and CV workshops we can give the youth tools go become more financially independent.
