Happy Monday! Hands On London is proud to announce our newest charity partner, Praxis.

Praxis is a busy centre in East London visited by over 10,000 people each year. They provide a  wealth of advice and support services to migrants and refugees from all  over the world, as well as act as a welcoming meeting place for displaced  communities. They are a wonderful organization who work hard to support new residents to find their place in the UK and to facilitate the creation of new  communities.

On July 16, Praxis will be holding their fourth annual New Voices  Festival at the V&A Museum of Childhood This free event is a  celebration of the diverse migrant communities of East London and their  contribution to local life- A range of stalls, activities and live  performances will keep the whole family entertained, with music, dance  and drama on the main stage, arts and crafts in the Children’s Area,  plus workshops and information stands exploring issues surrounding  migration and providing details of related support services.You can find out more here: http://www.praxis.org.uk/index.php?page=3_16&page3=1&id=88
