The theme for International Women’s Day 2022 is #BreakTheBias. The focus of this theme is to challenge gender prejudice, stereotypes and discrimination that prevent women from having access to life changing opportunities. Through our collective efforts, we can work to eliminate gender bias, in our workplaces, schools and communities. This is why at the Baytree Centre, we strive to give women and girls the education and skills to build a brighter future.
From TUESDAY 8th MARCH until TUESDAY 15th MARCH, All your DONATIONS to Baytree will be DOUBLED!
Baytree is situated in a low socio-economic area in Lambeth, affected by gang crime, violence, insecurity and trauma. Many of the families Baytree work with are from are experiencing many obstacles: poor health, poor mental health, overcrowded accommodation and also social isolation. This ultimately affects their aspirations, having long-term negative implications on their education, skills development and economic stability. For example, a great barrier for many is learning English.
As part of Baytree’s mission of supporting women and girls, we offer a safe space where we listen and provide aid. Our services range from after-school clubs for young girls to ESOL English classes for women. Activities for women are delivered daily. Baytree’s activities are based around our five pillars: Family Stability, Financial Stability, Education, Employment, and Wellbeing. For girls, we offer a wide range of positive activities such as academic support, career advice alongside guidance. This places women and girls in a position of growth and empowerment, changing aspirations into realities.
