London has a river?!

I saw this quote this week:

You would be surprised how many of my children have no idea that there is a river flowing through London’ Amanda Phillips, Head, Culloden Primary School, Poplar

Part of our role at the Canaan Project is about helping young people to broaden their horizons. In our experience young people in Tower Hamlets (and I think could be applied pan London) are/can be really isolated. Not leaving their immediate area, lock in by fear. We have taken 100’s of young people around London and out of London and are constantly surprised when arriving at the Underground barrier they have no idea what to do.

The Canaan Project role is to help young people experience more, young people that are experiencing are developing and young people experiencing and developing are aspiring, aspiring young people are making positive choices for themselves and their communities!
