REACH NEWSLETTER 2017

“The work REACH does is inspiring; over my time with them I have spoken with many people including employers, students, staff and teachers and the feeling I always come away with is the same - people caring for each other to ensure they get the opportunities in life they deserve and so many others take for granted.” Chris Hindes – Volunteer from Australia, Chris worked at REACH for 5 months in 2017 helping develop communication’s resources.

At REACH, our primary focus is always on our students and they have once again seized the opportunities presented before them. The provision of job placement support to our students for up to 6 months after graduation has also seen our placement rate remain at above 85% in 2017.

As 2017 draws to a close we invite you to spend a moment looking back on the many memories and remarkable achievements that REACH made over the past 12 months.
All of us here at REACH would like to send you our sincerest thanks for the support you have given to our students and us – it is appreciated beyond words.

We would like to wish you and your family good health and happiness always.
Happy New Year for 2018!
From the entire REACH team
