Overview

Every year learners and staff provide more than 10,000 hours of volunteering to the local community. This involvement has given us a great opportunity to work with people from many walks of life. One of the biggest volunteer projects was to help and support the Woodhall Farm Community Association in partnership with New Horizons Christian Fellowship. The Community Centre had run up a large debt, and the future looked extremely rocky. So our volunteers put themselves to the test together with friends of the charity and started getting the accounts put straight, decorated the whole place and helped out as caretakers, cleaners and more. It was a great day when we paid off the last debts.Our vision is big, because we want to make a real difference in people's lives. At the moment we are working in partnership with a former student to start a school in a slum area outside Hyderabad in India for 40 children. We are also training two groups from Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu so they can return home and start a WorldShapers Academy, community projects and New Horizons churches. We are looking into the possibility of organising Community Summits, initiating housing projects for low-income families, setting up training courses in decorating, carpentry and catering, offering more distance-learning courses, offering degree programmes in community transformation, charity management and political science, employing a Talent Development Manager, getting involved in partnerships related to the Olympics in 2012… and more.
