Future Plans

Raising funds for the new building has been a major focus of our work so far. The ground floor is now complete, and is being used by the staff, children and young people on a daily basis.

The second phase of the project is to develop the first floor. It is currently a flat empty roof, with a ramp and staircase up to it. The intention is to build the following on this floor:

  • Accommodation for volunteers and visiting trainers/professionals/guests
  • Multi-purpose hall, which can be used for meetings, awareness raising, training sessions, dance/drama, assemblies, PE sessions, festivals and parties. The possibilities are endless!
  • Resource centre/library
  • Training room/extra classroom
  • Bathroom

Friends of ROSHNI will continue to support ROSHNI in other ways, including sending volunteers. We intend to try and recruit longer-term volunteers from September 2010, who will be willing to commit to a 8-10 month placement. We also hope to develop a new role for specialist volunteers, to visit ROSHNI for a short-term placement in order to deliver training in a specific field.

Friends of ROSHNI UK hopes to increase the number of children and young people being sponsored through individual supporters over the next 2 years, as this is a very valuable way of providing regular and guaranteed support to ROSHNI.

We can't do any of this without your help! If you would like to become more involved, please contact us .
