Women Programme

Women are estimated to be 70% of the world’s poorest people and are often dependent and vulnerable to many forms of discrimination and abuse. Nonetheless, women are important pillars of family and community life.

Our programmes target women of all ages and enables them to take more control over their own lives by identifying clear, practical and realistic projects that will develop their skills, confidence and opportunities to improve their quality of life and those of their families, including;

• Promoting entrepreneurship among women through access to informal, one-to-one guidance and support, leadership and business skills training and identify opportunities to grow through meetings among women and technical advisors and programme managers.

• Promoting women's rights, particularly their sexual and reproductive rights, employment and equal pay.

• Supporting women rights advocacy to promote the rights of women in society including rights to education, property, leadership, employment and other aspects of their lives.

• Creating women networks for women in Education sector, Health and social care, business and small enterprises, other sectors. These networks are aimed at creating motivation and support among women as means to addressing family, community and personal development needs.

• To help malnourished children through emergency interventions feeding programmes that distribute well balanced foods to treat malnutrition before it becomes life-threatening.

• Promoting hygiene and sanitation by providing access to safe drinking water by tapping springs, drilling wells and installing water systems and teaching the importance of water and sanitation in preventing disease. Provide training and information to individuals, groups and communities on important health issues.

Disabled People

There is a sizeable group of people in society, both children and adults, who experience difficulty in supporting and expressing themselves and having their needs met due to physical, mental, visual or communications impairment. There is huge misunderstanding about disabled people – sometimes they are even hidden away in shame. At least 10% of people are disabled in developing countries, and the majority (70%) are extremely poor.

Discrimination on the basis of disability arises from barriers, ignorance and unfairness within society. Therefore the focus for change is societal and environmental rather than individual, and environments must be adapted to accommodate differences and be inclusive of all members of the community. Specific projects are designed to meet the needs of different forms of disability.

Cultural and welfare programme

This is aimed at bringing together various communities to benefit from inter-cultural events and programmes including;

• Developing African/Caribbean communities in Diaspora in major cities such as London, Manchester, leeds, Birmigham, Leicester, and others where members can network and celebrate events such as birthdays, funerals, graduation, National holidays, etc

• To creat an avenue for inviting outstanding African/Caribbean scholars, statesmen, entreprenueurs, entertainers and other role models to address the groups and inspire present and future generations.

• To promote cultural events including cultural dances, music, poetry, stories, and to discuss cultural issues such as marriage, circumcision, passage to maturity, ancestory, respect for the elderly, respect for women, treatment of pregnant women, raising children, children-elder relationships, grand-parenting, etc.

• To provide an avenue to share and promote African/Caribbean food and regional cuisines such as West African foods, East African foods, Caribbean Foods and to promote catering for events such as weddings, funerals, birthdays, and other events.
