Human Endeavour has been helping refugees and newcomers since 2006. Over the years it has regularly helped various newcomer communities in their settlement, social and economic inclusion through skill development, training, hands-on experience and assistance in seeking jobs, establishing small home-based businesses and guiding to the appropriate resources and services.
We have extensively worked with the South Asian, Syrian/Yazidi and more recently with Afghan/Hazara communities. For the settlement program we have received funding and support through provincial grants and the Regional Municipality of York. Human Endeavour provides critical need items to low-income and newcomer families and refugees including jackets, shoes, and household items and helps acquire low-cost furniture and mattresses for the needy. We are able to regularly receive generous donations from community members of furniture and other necessary items in addition to monetary donations.
We are able to establish strong partnerships with local stores like IKEA Vaughan to provide donations of bedding, pillows, curtains and other items while many others provided items on discount.
To have a broader impact, Human Endeavour runs regular social media campaigns to raise awareness about the needs and contributions of newcomers in Canada. We also have produced a number of videos that are available on YouTube to highlight key issues faced by the newcomers. Human Endeavour provides opportunities to the general public to engage with these families to create a better understanding, acceptance and inclusion of these families. Human Endeavour believes that elements of social inclusion help promote the practice of good citizenship among communities and improves self-worth among marginalized groups, particularly refugees and newcomers.
Human Endeavour is also helping clients referred to us through York Region, York Region District School Board. and other settlement agencies.
