The ‘Boleh’ Project

Activity Plan and Delivery for ‘Boleh Project’

 

Boleh Project imageClient: Boleh Trust

  • Trust formed in 2008 with express purpose of saving Boleh, a historic junk yacht of unique design, and giving her a new lease of life
  • A skilled and effective set of voluntary Trustees with a clear philosophy for involving young people

 

Project: Boleh Project

  • A NLHF funded project of £700,000 to restore Boleh and provide inspirational sail training opportunities to disadvantaged people in the spirit of the name Boleh which means ‘can do’ in Malay
  • Training and accreditation of apprentices to Level 2 City and Guilds
  • Schools partnership project; volunteer archive project; public open days and development of local support

 

How we helped

  • We researched and produced the Activity Plan for NLHF Round 2
  • We developed and supported the delivery of the core of the plan: a series of accreditated apprenticeships for local young people to help with their long term-employment prospects
  • We helped broker a lasting partnership with a school to involve students in the restoration phase and to take on Boleh after restoration so young people can experience her, learning sail craft, and building their confidence and self esteem
  • Given Boleh is a working vessel, we devised and implemented different ways in which people can learn about her through pop up exhibitions, open days, digital development, and access to her rich archival history
  • Our involvement with Boleh continued after Round 2 helping the Trust with expert advice during project delivery and an application to NLHF for Transition Funding [link to that project description under NLHF funding category]
