I have developed in many ways through volunteering at SOAR

Shafaz has been volunteering for SOAR for almost 4 years. Shafaz started off as a client via the Health Trainer programme during which she attended a 12 week healthy eating course delivered by Thaira Fiaz and myself Somshun Nessa. The course increased her knowledge in Health & Nutrition and it helped increase her confidence in turn making her more sociable. After making many positive changes in her lifestyle, she went on to attending the Introduction to Community Development and Health Course (ICDH) which she completed successfully and obtained certificate.
