Project 22

 

Project 22 is an endeavour of six-year-old Naomi Townsend, a young leader who is determined to do her bit to help make the little part of the world where she lives to become a better place.
 
Inspired by the daily mantra of her school to demonstrate kind words, kind hands and kind feet, Naomi has taken the task set by the Parents and Friends Committee of Regina Coeli Catholic Primary School to raise £22.22 by the 22nd February 2022 to another level. Through Project 22, Naomi has opted to do something other than the suggested sponsored walk, silence or tidying up to demonstrate compassion to 22 people who are either homeless or rough sleeping in Croydon.
 
After her experience of volunteering to give cookies to rough sleepers at Percy's Homeless Hub during the Christmas holidays, Naomi became incensed to do more. She has chosen to use some of her savings to buy the ingredients to bake a cake and cook her favourite meal of pasta and meat sauce for 22 homeless people or rough sleepers across Croydon. With the help of a team from the charity Percy's Homeless Hub, Naomi will distribute the meals she will prepare with her parent's support and sleeping bags, bedding, toiletries, and other essentials provided by Percy's Food Hub.

The most recent UK homeless statistics published by Shelter reveal that at least 320,000 people in Britain are homeless – a figure equivalent to one in every 200 UK citizens.
 
Rough sleepers may be the most visible face of the homeless in the UK. Still, this group also includes the "hidden homeless", many of whom' sofa surf' or live in temporary, insecure housing, hostels and B&Bs.
 
Thanks to Naomi's kindness, Project 22 has the resources required to feed 22 people; however, if you could support this GoFundMe by sponsoring Naomi, all the money raised will go directly to Regina Coeli Catholic Primary School.
 
Let's help encourage a child with a massive heart by recognising her display of model citizenship, leadership, and a genuine concern for others.
