The classes we run at the computer learning program are all inclusive and of mixed age and ability. We focus on children and adults who may otherwise not have access to a computer, giving them the opportunity to build a positive skill set, gain confidence in their abilities, and be empowered for the future.
Sovereign House Gh started the Computer Learning Programme for children in Salford, Greater Manchester. It’s a story with many plot twists, that are still being continued today. It’s the story of how one woman, Irene – Founder of Sovereign House Gh, saw a need and made something happen. Sovereign House Gh works to empower and improve the lives of disadvantaged children. Irene and her husband, after relocating to Greater Manchester, were heartbroken to hear of the poverty affecting families in Salford, one of the most deprived areas in Britain, and were desperate to do something about it. They could see the untapped potential in the children of Salford, and this drove them to create change.
Our classes are run mainly by volunteers; aimed at positively impacting the lives of the children. Our classes have boosted the confidence of the children and helped them develop a can-do attitude, as well as belief in themselves, and is giving them foundational skills to empower them for the future. We keep the classes small to ensure each child understands the computer program they are learning.
We have a team of dedicated volunteers, helping children to develop their computer skills to a standard on par with, or above, their peers. By encouraging students and giving them the tools and guidelines that prompt them to realise they are capable of accomplishing tasks independently, we build their confidence and help develop a ‘can-do’ attitude. Our amazing team consistently delivers outstanding results.
The children of today are leaders of tomorrow. Impacting their lives positively will yield rewards for now and the future to come. If you are passionate about teaching IT skills to children, or supporting them, come and join our enthusiastic team.
