ANNUAL REPORT 2014-15
YFS helps people participate
in community life and economic prosperity.
Active people are people-centred. They prioritise people; they focus
on having close connection with others, aspire to be valuable members
of their families and their community and take positive action to do so.
Bertrina, Nicholas & Luke
“I've just always been told: this is your life. Don't ever expect anything more or wish for anything more. I feel really happy now. Having a roof over our heads means everything.”
“I feel I'm not shy anymore and I also feel more confident. I’m determined. Sometimes I can have a little bit of a bossy side but not very much.
I've also got a very funny side;
I'm witty and I wasn’t like that
when I first came here.”
“I wanted to volunteer to try and help other kids here. Let them know you can always make it out there. Show them the right way and help them. I just like helping people. It’s more or less saying I’ve been there, I've had problems
myself, but I've made it.”
“I do like the person I am now more than what I liked myself before. I really enjoy being here, making friends and helping. I love feeling helpful.”
