Donny moved to Walworth 10 years ago but only recently discovered InSpire through the ACTive Walworth outreach workers at the Creation Employment Fair in February 2013. She enrolled with ACTive Walworth with the aim of gaining the skills and certifications required for teaching English and maths on a voluntary basis so that she could help and integrate better with her community, and also to help improve her career prospects.
Through ACTive Walworth she has connected with fellow participant Luis Curay and is now teaching his twice weekly English classes to Latin American students. She has also become heavily involved in additional projects at InSpire.
“ACTive Walworth has helped me to feel a part of my community because now I get involved, I go to societies. It’s not just my house, my room, Lidl, Tesco, I know more about parts of my area that I never knew before.”
