PEACH (Parents in the Education, Achievement & Character of their children) is a project with a family focus, the primary aim of which is achieving a stronger relationship and a better future for both mother and daughter. The project, which is built around Baytree’s Character Education Programme, is a manifestation of the centre’s fundamental belief in the centrality of the family in the development of the whole person into a well-rounded, flourishing member of society.
PEACH offers mothers tailored support in achieving economic self-sufficiency and family stability. It gives them a forum to share their experiences and learn how to support themselves and their family more effectively. PEACH uses a theory of change which holds that economic sufficiency for every family can be attained by achieving upward movement in the following five areas: Education and Training, Family Stability, Wellbeing, Financial Management, and Employment & Career Management.
PEACH takes on an inter-generational approach to social mobility and therefore, as part of the project, daughters are able to access our Youth Mentoring Programme. The aim is to support girls in their personal and academic development, build character, broaden horizons, and foster their confidence and motivation.
PEACH mothers and daughters also have the opportunity to participate in Family Activities such as events, trips and celebrations and are encouraged to attend monthly Heroines’ Workshops together with the daughter’s mentor.
