Furthermore they hold a wide range of community events
In order to build the new Youth and Community Centre, HAAYA have started fundraising. The total project will cost £200,000 and are looking to raise this by December 2014 and need help in doing so.

HAAYA has a rich history of servicing the local community in the London Borough of Hounslow, Ealing and Richmond. Originally the work was focused at the needs of the Bangladeshi, Pakistani, African and Arab youths and addressing issues relating to disaffection and social exclusion, through a variety of educational, social, welfare and leisure activities as well as advice sessions.
Over the years HAAYA have opened and expanded their range of provisions and has worked in partnership with many youth organisations, charities and the local authority. They are forever increasing their work with the wider diverse community within the London borough of Hounslow.
The all new purpose built Youth and Community Centre will inspire, inform and develop future generations. It will become a hub in the heart of Hounslow (near Hounslow mainline station) and a sign that even in these times of difficultly, that there is still aspirations of building and developing better facilities and provisions for the young people in our community.
