FST is building great neighborhood program that focuses on positive interactions, technology training, healthy exercise, legal clinic, pc repair clinic, and building community spirit. To strengthen the capacity of Somalis, Middle Eastern and other East Africans to become contributing members of society. FST is contributing all their time and afford for the families who immigrated from the civil wars to have a better future for them and their children. We are willing to do that by educating and pushing them to learn technology and English language.
The Somali society has been bleeding and leaking in many different areas. This community came from a background where they faced lack of education, wars, death and many other hardships in Somalia. They believed that coming to the United States is the solution to all of their problems . Yet, coming to America feels like rebuke to them.
Knowing each Somali Family have multiple children, they came here with a hope that their children will receive the best education and will have the life their parents only dreamed of. Coming to this busy country, they got caught up with its life style. Both of parents are trying to make a living for their children and trying to survive in this country. That is where the leaking came from, the parent are busy with work to the point that they lose control of their children’s school work or behavior.
This is where First Step Tech role comes. Our organization is here to help the parents and the children academically and socially. The organization has operated for several months and is providing a place for community members to gather and have legal clinic and computer training programs that gives opportunity families and youths.
We are looking a grant writer who can help us write and find grants.
