Geographical remit: 


Canaan Project works exclusively with young women aged 11-19 in Tower Hamlets to see them flourish, have broadened horizons and raised aspirations. We want to see young women who feel comfortable in their skin, their communities and the wider world. 

Young women in Tower Hamlets are hugely unrepresented in youth work, and we feel they are missing out on what good youth work can offer - so we decided to offer girls only provision in order to address this inequality. 


We run lunch clubs in 2 local secondary schools which are mostly activities based, where we have great conversations and are intentional about forming positive relationships with young women. We also offer after school provision on a neighbouring estate, as well as 1:1 mentoring, trips and residentials, and skills based projects that take place throughout the year.
