We are here to ignite hope & to support vulnerable women and children to thrive not merely survive.



Our work in the UK

 

Our work is focused on three main areas. Establishing FREE BREAKFAST CLUBS for primary and secondary schools. Teachers are reporting a growing demand for free breakfasts due to rising numbers of underweight lethargic pupils with signs of hunger in their classrooms (*report by Amelia Gentleman, Guardian Newspaper 19 June 2012)

 

 

​Secondly we find EMERGENCY ACCOMMODATION for Black African and Caribbean women and children whose homes have been destabilised by domestic violence and abuse. Repeated and severe forms of violence and abuse affects 1 in 8 women (*according to Womens Aid, the key national charity in UK) 

The third area of our work involves working to reduce the disaproportionate number of black and mixed race children living in care in the UK. We actively promote and recruit more people from the BME (black minority and ethnic) community to become FOSTER CARERS AND ADOPTIVE PARENTS
