Jeevan provides opportunities for young Asian women with learning disabilities. It aims to empower and encourage young Asian women to speak up for themselves and integrate into society.
The project also organises activities such as awareness days, events, publicity, media workshops, computer skills, arts/crafts, educational visits and other activities which help develop interpersonal skills.
Jeevan also offers one to one support targeting isolated young women who have left school. This includes building confidence, self esteem and raising aspirations.
If you have any spare time and would like to put something back into your community by volunteering, or you know someone who has learning difficulties and could benefit from our project, please contact Marlene Burrell on (0114) 261 9130 or at Jeevan group, c/o Pakistan Advice and Community Association, 58 Owler lane, Firvale, Sheffield, S4 8GA.
Partnership organisations include Sheffield futures, Sympsons project, Oakes park school and Talbot school.
