Where it all goes!

 

There is always exciting news here and this week we have had meetings De Montfort University and the Lord Mayor, read about it in latest news!

 

However, exciting though it may be we are here for another purpose and it is always inspiring to hear about people engaged in helping others. H-PAN helping the poor and needy (based in Manchester) is just one of the many organisations that accesses business surplus from Giving World Online.

 

Elvis Tabeth is a great example of a community worker who needs help badly. He looks very professional in his suit and is genuinely very helpful. The centre Elvis runs is in a small community building working with mainly Romanian immigrants who need help with finances, language and social integration, mainly schooling and work.

 

The centre helps with language classes for both adults and children, runs retraining programmes, and offers financial and benefits advice and runs a nursery group. The building is a community church with a lot of computers etc but they needed desks to make classes easier for the students. The desks are being supplied by a Leicestershire company.

 

Elvis is a teacher who gave up his job to keep the project going. He works from this centre in M18 but the main charity is based in central Manchester. He needs the resources from Giving World Online to make the place more usable for his client base, The toys they have already received have been used to provide distraction for the children while the parents learn. Elvis has given some to the families to take home as well. Clothes are given out to the needy families. They hold a register of all the people using the centre and this has increased from 400 in 2007 to over 3000 as word spread about what they were doing.

 

For Giving World Online this is a project well worth supporting.
