From Kolkata Slum to Masters in Business & Beyond
From Kolkata Slum to Masters in Business & Beyond

Jane’ Alam Sheikh grew up in the slums of Kolkata, India. Along with his parents and sister, he shared two toilets and one tap with 10,000 other people who were living in the slum community. As a young boy, Jane’ saw people starving and suffering.
When he was registered into the local Compassion child development centre, life changed for Jane’. Every day at the centre he would receive a nutritious meal and life skills training. He became the first person in his community to go to school. 
Jane’ furthered his studies at university and, in 2014, graduated from Manchester University with a Masters in Business Administration. Jane’ has since co-founded Pursuit International, an organisation working to empower people restricted by physical and spiritual poverty to pursue a life of hope and purpose.

Launch of the new Passages Youth Engagement Hub
Launch of the new Passages Youth Engagement Hub

Passages' new building on Edward Street, Perth is about to open its doors.
For over two decades, Passages has been one of the longest serving inner city youth services - helping to change the lives of vulnerable young people.
The Rotary Club of Perth will be holding a special lunch meeting as a part of the opening of the Passages Youth Engagement Hub's new premises, and would like to invite you to attend, and have the opportunity to see the incredible impact Passages provides.

When: On Friday 23rd November 2018
Location: Passages - 143 Edward Street, Perth, WA
Time: 12:30 for 12:45 start - 2:00pm
Light lunch and drinks provided
Cost: $20.00 per person

Bookings essential to: www.trybooking.com/ZDNA  by 9am Wednesday 21st November 2018 for catering purposes. 

Passages is incredibly proud to continue to provide marginalised and at risk young people with a safe and positive place to access support services and create pathways out of homelessness. Unfortunately, Passages had experienced an increase in the need for this essential service, both in the number of young people attending as well as the complexities that present from their crisis. A few years ago, the difficult decision was made to farewell their premises in Palmerston Street Northbridge for a larger, safer and more practical location that will allow Passages to respond to the needs of the young people accessing the services now and into the future.
Passages is a joint venture of Vinnies WA and the Rotary Club of Perth, with the new premises on Edward Street Perth supported by Lotterywest. All of us are extremely excited to see this project come to fruition.
