With public sector and grant funding diminishing charities have got to look at new ways of helping the communities they serve. Sabirian is an initiative from local charity Community Action IW that has been developed over the last year.
At its heart is a desire to provide training, work placement and employment opportunities to Islanders facing additional barriers to employment. It is also there to generate profits for reinvestment in other community development work to help the Island. A third benefit is that it provides a trade not aid approach bringing benefit to small scale artisans and small scale producers in India.
