Developing potential through mentoring and tutoring


Children can’t learn well when they’re stressed and don't have a stable home. We start with a personal mentor, then when a child has a supportive role model in their life we can help with tutoring. This brings positive changes for children like Maria, and develops their potential so they can succeed in life.

Help for families in crisis


373 children received food parcels this winter, with loads of fresh fruit and 73 sets of groceries delivered.

And Covid didn’t stop us from spreading Christmas cheer through our volunteers’ Shrek-themed video.
