Representatives from the Al Faisal Without Borders Foundation recently visited several Mosaic projects in London to see the impact that its patronage of the charity is having on the lives of young people in the capital.
Abdullatif Alyafei, General Manager and Ali Mar’e, Executive Director both of Al Faisal Without Borders Foundation, joined members of the Mosaic and The Prince’s Trust leadership team in a busy day of touring various projects in the city.
The day began with a visit to Sir John Cass’s Foundation and Red Coat Church of England Secondary School in East London, where students on Mosaic’s Secondary School Programme participated in a Q&A with our senior guests from the Al Faisal Foundation and discussed a career in international charitable work. The visit also presented an opportunity to speak with senior teachers from the School and hear about the impact of the Mosaic programme.
The party then accompanied a group of young people from the same school on a ‘World of Work’ visit to international law firm Denton’s where they saw how such days are used to inspire and excite school children about what’s possible through high aspirations and hard work.
The day ended with a chance to speak with ex-offenders who have benefitted from Mosaic’s Ex-Offender Programme in HMP Pentonville and are making excellent progress in rebuilding their lives outside of prison.
Mosaic’s Head of Communications Nizam Uddin said: “We were very keen that our guests from Al Faisal Without Borders saw first-hand the work that Mosaic is carrying out across London and beyond thanks to their support. Their response was very positive, which was very welcoming as they were able to spend time at each location talking directly to the young people that are benefitting from their involvement with the charity.
“We couldn’t exist without the support of our various patrons and it’s always a pleasure to show them the significant impact that their generosity is having on the lives of young people.”
