New PAWA project from 2021.
Established 20 years ago, the FPPA charity aims to educate and support vulnerable street teenagers and help them avoid and recover from violence and human trafficking. Many are ex East Timorese refugee girls and the project works to increase economic independence alongside developing emotional resilience and other life skills. Whilst boarding at the FPPA centre 70 teenage girls will benefit from cooking, tailoring and weaving courses supported by PAWA. In addition the girls will receive health and reproduction education to cover teenage pregnancy, sexual abuse, illegal drugs and social issues, and will learn about the environment and ways to reduce plastic waste and upcycle it into items which can be sold.
