WELCOME TO ELI'S HAVEN

We are a safe haven for children and young people that provide entertainment facilities to keep the children and young people engaged and give them access to computing facilities and study services, to help them get better in all subjects; especially the ones they struggle with. 

Our aim is to help children and young people from low-income families and to keep them off the streets. We will do this by creating a space for them to be the best they can be. They will always feel at home; while being away from home. We will also be hosting projects and ensure to engage in activities that will help the community rebuild and recover from COVID-19.

WHO WE ARE?

Eli's Haven was established in 2018. Prior to that, the founder had been offering her services to young people since 2013. To date, we have inspired over 200 young people aged from 7 to 25 from Coventry and the surrounding areas, and we currently deliver a range of evening, weekend and holiday time projects.

OUR VISION

Here at Eli's Haven we have a fantastic story to share…It’s not just about what we are doing now, much of what we need to do has not yet been started. We believe every young person is unique. Each person has a genius just waiting to be discovered. We also believe that we have a huge social responsibility to help each young person discover what they can become good at, to nurture them to achieve and to encourage them to take the risk and try something new. We do not believe that this is the exclusive job of schools, family or local authority.

WE BELIEVE WE CAN PLAY A HUGE ROLE

We believe we can play a huge role with young people, but to do this we do need help and support.We have set out a programme to change the lives and choices for young people in Coventry. This isn’t a 500 page detailed plan which will sit in some bottom drawer in someone’s desk. It’s a one pager, a workable programme that’s well thought out. It’s based on an existing winning model and already has the support of many of the right people and organisations in the town.

Our goal is to interact with young people, to offer them choices that they don’t currently have, to show them alternatives and to work with several other groups and agencies in Coventry to help improve their lives and their futures. We have our own guides and mentors to help us achieve our goals.

“This is our programme. This is our mission, please help us to be successful.”

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ELI'S HAVEN

TESTIMONIALS

Mo & Wadzie has a way of coming down to children’s levels and allowing them to be free and express themselves. They are always free and ready to tell her anything and everything bothering them. My children are always excited to go over to their centres when it is lesson day and always bother me if I ever forget to tell them.

SARAH | PARENT

"My children have been going for tuition and I have seen a lot of improvement in the time they have been going. They are more independent in their learning and enjoy going there. I am especially pleased with my daughter; who used to be very shy and reserved but has recently been more confidence and enjoys expressing herself. Thank you Mo."

TOYOSI EGBE | PARENT

"The tutoring helped my daughter increase confidence in her learning and life in general. The tutoring helped my daughter gain a place in a very good private school; after passing her 11+ exams which Mo prepared her for since she was in year 4. She is now about to enter year 11 and is still doing great and is as confident as ever for her GCSEs."
