CARE LINK WEST MIDLANDS
"Working to Promote Refugees Inclusion and Eliminate Isolation"
The Saturday Homework Club is an after school project that supports poorly performing local refugee children aged 5-14 with one to one free tuition in challenging subjects (Maths, English & Science). The project is run by trained community volunteers (DBS cleared at enhanced level) and provides one-to-one mentoring of primary school children in Sandwell who are struggling with their literacy, numeracy and science assignments as a result of language barriers and not getting extra support from home (from parents or siblings).
The Saturday Homework Club project has been set up to help French/Swahili speaking children under 14 years of age from centre Africa (Burundi, Congo Brazzaville, Congo Kinshasa and Rwanda) living in Birmingham and Sandwell areas develop study skills learnt in their current schools placement. During our meetings with parents, parents they have asked if Care Link West Midlands could be of help to children with literacy, numeracy, English and ICT difficulties so that they become motivated and independent learners through after school activities during the year.
We meet with the children at the Parish of the Resurrection/Smethwick where a hall has been offered to us by the Parish. The timetable is every Saturday during school year time from 14h:00 pm to 16h:00pm. Some parents occasionally come to visit the club to be aware of how things are being made. The project activities only run on Saturdays.
