We strongly believe that Simons Town and surrounding areas needs a second phase shelter, homeless individuals get taken in by shelters,however they only have a certain time period which we have seen is not enough to get them back on their feet with work, accommodation and the necessary skills to provide for themselves. This being said, they eventually just end up back on the street.
Within our foundation we will be focusing on the following criteria’s:
· Skills development (Arts & Crafts / Computer Skills / DIY Skills
· Life Skills / Personal Up-Liftment / Problem Solving
· Assist in sourcing for work opportunities
· Connecting them with their families
We are currently in need of any premises that can be utilized as a second phase shelter, funds to ensure the establishment can and will run as per our vision. Funds to ensure they have the necessary tools to develop their skills, anything from I.T, DIY or Arts and Crafts.
We will also be focusing on smaller projects within the community, like we did in the past with the I.D initiative. Raising money in order to make sure each homeless person can apply for his or her I.D card should they not have any form of identification, which is a requirement for day to day living in normal society.
We look forward to working with not only the homeless people but also with the communities and residents, making sure we can enrich the quality of life for our less fortunate neighbours.
