Mind The Gap
Mend the Gap’s mission is to help individuals and their communities to mend the gap between cultures, religions, generations and people of different wealth for the benefit of current and future generations. We will achieve this by making links and creating bridges between these different groups, communities and individuals. We implement practical projects both in the UK and in Eastern Africa that aim to eradicate poverty and advance education.
We implement educational and micro-enterprise projects, provide ICT training to build basic and work skills for the young generation and the older and elderly in local community learning centres, undertake social welfare activities to reduce isolation, and give practical help.
We provide an opportunity for clients to develop work experience by virtual volunteering; and provide personalised ICT training for clients, keep in touch with family members, find or create employment, do their shopping on-line, improve motor and intellectual skills; improve feelings of self-worth, look and advocate for rights and entitlements, improve creative and social communication skills, find new interests and educational opportunities through use of the Internet and make new friends in a peer support group; and bridge the intergenerational gap.
