I am a local social entrepreneur and take part in multiple community projects alongside my other commitments including teaching, interpreting and consultancy.
As a father and being a migrant myself I know the challenges of recently arrived families in our neighbourhood and want to offer them a solution to improve their children's academic skills, speed up their integration process and enable them to socialise through dedicated out of school activities.
My crowdfunding page is dedicated to address the abovementioned challenges as well as the disproportionate impact of the Covid-19 crisis on disadvantaged ethnic minority children.
PLEASE FIND THE DETAILS BELOW:
The COVID-19 global pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on migrant communities, particularly on disadvantaged vulnerable parents and their children.
Our frontline professionals and volunteers believe that young migrants coming from a poor background will be one of the groups most impacted, so through this project, we want to provide support in the immediate health and wellbeing of the most at-risk and socially isolated young people.
Following the outbreak of Covid-19, many minority ethnic disadvantaged children have become more introvert, anti-social and lost track of expected progress. In this context, our project will help 60 local vulnerable children be inspired and motivated as well as supporting them to overcome their anxiety through implementation of periodical remote and face-to-face (when possible) learning sessions.
Our programmes will provide academic, social, and emotional mentoring support on a weekly basis by connecting young participants under the supervision of experienced teachers. The support offered is individually tailored to the participants' specific needs. The main aim is to recognise and then target low self-confidence and self-esteem,
manifesting in many different forms, and in developing confidence through motivation and skill building.
Alongside the activities for children, we want to offer webinars, consultancy and English language learning support for migrant parents with a language barrier so that we can increase their chances of employment in the UK.
