Aaliya Abdirahman is one of a number of young people from Tottenham to whom our Foundation has given increased chances of employment thanks to an apprenticeship.


The 17-year-old struggled at school, had problems in her personal life and was at-risk of being classified as NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) upon leaving school before the Foundation stepped in.
