Guildford is home to many charities with very diverse remits, including Jubilee Action. Jubilee Action are based on Quarry Street but work with children in East Africa and South America who need psycho-social support, helping them to help themselves in spite of the challenges they face: wars, the loss of parents, low family income and inequality to name but a few. The charity protects children’s human rights and works hard to empower communities to care for and educate their children.
Really, though, the work of the Jubilee Action is far greater than that: it’s about real children and their lives. To help us better understand those children and engage with the work of the charity, there will be an open evening on Thursday 28 November from 6pm-8pm at Jubilee Action’s office at 11 Quarry Street, GU1 3UY. There’ll be a chance to hear Fredah Ajowi talk about the project in Kenya where she has been working with street children in the city of Kisumu. After that, you can visit the photography exhibition, chronicling the work of the charity and honouring the children it’s helped.
If you’d like to go, please email Shahrzad.firstname.lastname@example.org or call
