Faith, a pupil at Liberton High School, chose Tailor Ed Foundation as her Youth Philanthropy Initiative Project, and has won!
Tailor Ed Foundation was delighted a few months ago when a student from Liberton High School contacted Stuart and asked if it was okay if she did her Youth Philanthropy Initiative Project on us. The student explained she wanted to share her experiences of being autistic to her classmates and the whole school. She said there was no better local charity to support than Tailor Ed and just maybe she could raise funding for our work. Of course we agreed and Stuart was interviewed by the student as she prepared her presentation for her YPI project.
In June a very excited student then got back in touch with Stuart to say she had WON and that we would be getting £3000 towards our services.
This was a fantastic outcome: the student told us she is delighted to have raised awareness of autism throughout her school, with her friends, other students and school staff and she was over the moon that she had raised so much for us.
Tailor Ed Foundation would like to thank Faith Sinclair for choosing us as her local charity and for sharing her experiences so powerfully and convincingly with everyone at Liberton High School.
Youth Philanthropy Initiative is a well established part of social studies in the school curriculum for all High Schools for second year students and there is a separate programme for senior pupils: if your child ever comes home and tells you they are taking part in YPI but not sure which local charity to carry out their project on, please point them in our direction! Stuart would be delighted to help and support them – firstname.lastname@example.org
