Scalabrini Annual Report 2018 - 2019
Read our 2018-2019 Annual Report, which records our statistics, services and successes for the year! Read about the English School as they walk the often gruelling journey of acquiring English alongside our clients. Marvel at the incredible energy of the Employment Access team as they support clients through job-seeking. See how opportunity and safe space boosts individual migrant woman in their new home in the Women’s Platform. Using imagination and creativity to understand how to link across our differences and foster attitudes that allow for mutual respect, the UNITE youth programme has had an exciting year exploring the positive impact of debate as a tool to interrogate self-identity and how that identity is expressed and perceived. In terms of Advocacy Programme, we have seen some wonderful creative growth sparked by ongoing legal challenges faced by refugees and migrants in South Africa. The continued closure of Cape Town’s Refugee Reception Office – although disappointing – birthed a creative activism campaign, which brought beauty and colour to the RRO! Under the hashtag #OpenTheRRO and headed by Sonke Gender Justice, the campaign increased awareness and evoked much-needed media attention to the issue.
