About Campaignends 31 May 2018, 11:59 PM
As our Little Sisters have grown up to become mothers themselves, our mentors came together in 2014 to start a literacy programme to help their children get a good early start to life.
Over time, this has grown to beyond reading, to become Families for Families, a group for mentor and mentee mums to support one another in various aspects of their parenting journey.
Your donations will help organise regular events for Families to Families to socialise and share their parenting journey, forging a better future for themselves and their children.
About the Charity
Mentoring. It is the simple idea that dreams come true because of someone who believes in the one who dreams. This one simple idea has seen us walk into residential rehabilitation homes, schools, living rooms and behind prison bars, to touch the lives of those who have become our family. Beautiful People, started in 2006, is a volunteer movement dedicated to building mentoring relationships that support young women and men, exploring the idea of freedom within and without, and helping them realise their dreams. We are a relationship, not a programme. We refuse to be constrained by the boundaries of fixed programme durations. We celebrate the ordinary everyday heroes who are the mentors and mentees, growing together in an extraordinary journey of challenging their own limits. Our philosophy of support translates into a powerful experience for growth and self-discovery through a combination of life-skills training, mentoring, and coaching.
