  • Need

    Need

    Most of the children and young persons which are going to benefit from this project are mainly from Refugee backgrounds and the Black minority ethnic groups. These children and young people are socially disadvantaged as their parents and guardians are living on low incomes and welfare state benefits, so those parents find it difficult to give to their children and young persons, an education, leisure and recreational activities outside the school time and during summer time.

    Solution

    Our main aim is to try and assist these children and young people with the better achievement in school matter, and then to be able to succeed with high grade marks in subjects like, Maths, and English. Our project will also bring happiness and hope to these children and young persons in the way that, we will assist their parents with providing for free of charge activities such as day-trips and visits throughout London city and outside London, as these parents cannot afford this on their own.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    As it is widely and well known that, there is a high level of crime commission within our community which involves mostly the youth of Black Minority Ethnic and others, so we then conducted a research by talking to people of the black minority ethnic, and also the African communities living in the areas of Enfield and Haringey boroughs. We are aiming to try and stop the youths habits of using weapons such as: knives, guns and gang culture.
