"Our Goal is simple. Build up a nation of world leaders. Providing the tools marginalised and ethnic minority groups need to not only survive but thrive".

Our Approach: At Sapphire we are more than an organisation; we are a catalyst for change. Our work transcends age, geographical boundaries, and backgrounds. We instil a message of love and self-worth, offering hope to those who may have felt silenced or marginalised.

With over 9 years of experience and a track record of assisting over 10,000 young people and single parents, particularly from minority and disadvantaged backgrounds, we continue to empower individuals to be the best version of themselves. We believe in helping them gain genuine insights into their aspirations and purposes. We mentor, coach, provide literature, offer entertainment, host events, and conduct workshops, all aimed at creating platforms and pathways for young people worldwide to discover their true calling. Our overarching goal is to inspire individuals to believe in themselves and recognise their full potential.

We recognise that many young people who join our program face severe mental health challenges due to various life circumstances. We understand that addressing these challenges is a critical step in preparing them for employment and life in general. We actively seek funding to ensure that mental health is an integral part of our holistic approach, enabling young people to enter the workforce as well-rounded individuals. The prevalence of mental health issues is on the rise, particularly among young people. A staggering 70% of children and young people experiencing mental health problems have not received early interventions. We believe in early intervention and support.
