Mentoring project for unaccompanied asylum seeking children

Mentoring project for unaccompanied asylum seeking children

Sunbeam has joined hands with Mercy Mission and Accenture Group to deliver a unique mentoring project for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children in foster care. This project is designed to connect unaccompanied asylum-seeking children with potential mentors based on their career interests, language and nationality. Inauguration of this project took place on 8th January 18 at Accenture Building in Central London. The young people had an opportunity to meet potential mentors and share their future ambitions. Sunbeam’s active participation in this project was widely appreciated by Mercy Mission, Accenture Groups, mentors, young children and foster carers. The Mercy Mission has recognised Sunbeam for ‘Demonstrated commitment to positive social change. Take responsibility for improving the lives of the vulnerable young people specifically Refugees and Unaccompanied minors’. Simon Williams, CEO of Sunbeam has represented this event along with staff, foster carers and foster children. The young people found this event very beneficial and a ladder to achieve and succeed.

The next event is scheduled for 20th January 18 at Sunbeam Office where the young people will be matched with mentors.
