Project Summary

Association Pour Personnes En Larmes (APPEL) registered since 2006 operates ARCH Rehabilitation Centre for homeless and people recovering from addiction. APPEL also runs ARCH Training Center providing hard/soft skills for beneficiaries including vulnerable women/children in the local community of Port Louis. Annex to this is ARCH Café/ Catering which is a Social Entrepreneurship initiative powered by APPEL providing catering services to small and medium corporate/ private events to create employment opportunities for graduated trainees and enabling them to become economically autonomous.

APPEL is constructing a new building to host the ARCH Training Centre (G+1 floors approx 7000 ft2) to expand its services free of charge to those who have barriers to employment and career guidance opportunities. The intention is to become the first NGO providing customized MQA certified training in various trades such as wood, metal, electric, plumbing, pastry, cookery, hairdressing, beauty care, etc. The plot of land belongs to APPEL. 

Detailed Proposal

Currently, APPEL is renting an old building located only 50m from the construction site and about 300m from ARCH Rehab Centre. This building is quite limited in terms of space and structural layout which limits operations. Constant investment in repair works has resulted in it no longer being viable for APPEL to use this facility. The land where the building is being constructed is prime location with high visibility from the motorway at the entrance of Port Louis with hundreds of vehicles and commuters every morningIt is also provides a superb opportunity to relocate ARCH Training Centre and ARCH Café at the same time into one building. Construction works have been in progress since 15th February 2023.

APPEL require funding for two main areas of the project, namely classroom/office equipment and to equip the hairdressing workshop: 

Three classrooms and two offices – This includes purchase of one digital projector, 3 large white boards, 2 medium whiteboard, 2 small whiteboard, 9 foldable tables & 36 chairs and 12 wall fans, water dispensers, one printer, 5 medium filing cabinets 

Hairdressing Workshop – This includes purchase of three professional hairdressing chairs, one hair wash basin, wall mirrors, one water tank, one large filing cabinet.
