At Raedan Institute our aim is to provide exceptional service to the most vulnerable people especially children amongst our community. Our aim is to provide key educational resources and materials so that children may continue their education and the gap between the haves and have nots are even greater. We will design, print and deliver through our various social media platforms and ensure the most vulnerable are supported. Our previous project raised over £6,000 and we continue to provide support in other areas to many people. We have a team of teachers and educators who will make tailor-made resources so that we can provide effective resources to students from KS1 to 4. Last year we invested in a state of the art printer which can print 1000's of sheets and we have a dedicated team of volunteers who will also assist in the printing, collating and distribution. At our Centre of Excellence here in Leicester we have the capacity (18 rooms) for storage and collection points also.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Organisational outcomes of this project include: ● Keeping the community active during these times ● Providing key educational resources to the most vulnerable ● Improved service delivery (through highly trained staff) ● Increased awareness of the support required for children and the youth Outcomes for children and young people include: ● Improved educational attainment ● Improved employability skills ● Improved confidence and motivation (for present and future) ● Improved mental health, physical health and overall well-being (resilience) ● Improved behaviours ● Improved relationships (peer/socially, with adults, community) The legacy of this project will be a healthier youth population in our community, in other words, young people who believe in themselves, can achieve their dreams and act as responsible, engaged citizens.
Steps to get it done:
We aim to provide food packs also so that those children who are missing out due to school closures do not go hungry. Many home education/schooling children in Leicester (approx 2000-3000) have no access due to lockdown we aim to support these students also.
