THE PROJECT

The Problem

Working at North East Refuge Service, Afi witnessed the negative impact of isolation on the mental health of women

It became apparent that this was a bigger issue that affects several women in the North East struggling to find work and integrate into society

Our Solution

Africawad provides the opportunity for local women in the North East to volunteer their time to help recycle clothes

 

This in turn reduces social isolation,
improves self esteem and provides valuable work experience.

Success

Several women who volunteered for AfricaWad went on to secure full time jobs through the experience gained from the project 

Staying true to the goal of empowering women, AfricaWad also uses fund generated to sponsor the education of girls globally

THE WOMEN FOR RECYCLING PROJECT

We are inviting women who feel isolated in the community to come join us at 203 High Street East NE28 7RS to gain some valuable transferable skills. The project focuses on teaching women how to sell items online and how to provide excellent customer service. 

Any travel expenses and refreshments will all be paid for thanks to the Big Lottery Fund
