Sikh Sanjog

#PATHWAYTOEMPOWERMENT

This month we launch our crowdfunding page with Aviva Community Fund to raise £3,000.

This will allow us to work with a cohort of up to 12 women from BAME communities whose employability has been affected by the pandemic.

We want to crowdfund to cover the costs of workshops including facilitators, stationary materials, travel and refreshments, the group will be facilitated and supported by our own team members who have real life experiences and have been through similar journeys with us and are now stronger than ever.

We want to help make them the best versions of themselves.

Can you help? Please share and donate where you can!

Thank you!
