Our mission is to provide support for people who have limited life skills due to violence and\or their upbringing whether that is poor parenting or coming from a lower class suburb and having no successful role model or mentor.
Our vision is a world where everyone is successful. We aim to increase the number of people who have a sustainable livelihood. To make a difference to women and children who have come from abuse with low self esteem and other issues resulting from abuse. To help those with limited life skills and options in life due to a range of issues they have struggled with. Our aim is to equip people with life\work skills that are crucial in order to live a full and productive life which includes being confident and successful.
Overcoming unemployment due to lack of life\work skills.
Empowering people to control their own lives and achieve their goals and dreams.
Our work seeks one overall outcome: to bring about positive change in the lives of people living in poverty due to abuse and lack of life skills.
Fund Raising CD
Tessa also wrote and recorded a music CD to help raise funds. 100% of the sale price of the CD go towards helping women and children coming from abuse. The funds are primarily used to get them into a Salvation Army women’s refuge, the same refuge that changed Tessa's life years ago.
You can only truly heal and re build your life when you are out of the abusive home and in a safe place with support.
