Ligoniel Improvement Association applied for a grant to help cover the costs of food and drink for 24 children from cross community areas in North
Belfast for two weeks while they traveled to Durban, South Africa where they
volunteered their time by directly working with young people living with HIV
and Aids. While there they worked on a larger project to help refurbish an addiction centre.
This project helped foster community cohesion with cross community work
between children and family members who helped to organise and fundraise for this
trip. This area of North Belfast would
have been known as having high levels of anti-social behaviour, and the trip helped build and improve the self esteem and reputation of youth from the area. The trip
gave the children the opportunity of a lifetime and enhanced their wellbeing,
confidence and social skills. This project meets the outcomes of five Community Chest themes: Working for
community change, reducing anti–social behaviour in project area, developing
participants pride in where they live, and enhancing participant’s wellbeing,
confidence and social skills, promoting inclusion within communities.
