“TO PROMOTE POSITIVE CHANGE THE SOCIAL, ECONOMIC & CULTURAL LIFE. ENSURING FAIRNESS, EQUALITY AND UNDERSTANDING AT ALL LEVELS;
TO BE A GUIDING FORCE FOR ALL OUR PEOPLES.”
Over the last 2 decades, the African communities in the UK have grown exponentially, bringing with it a wide range of diverse cultural influences and social effects.
While this can be seen as a positive growth, there are a lot of problems facing these ethnic groups as while it has been growing, there has been no form of assistance available or support provided to aid in the settlement of these people into the society.
A direct result of not having these forms of aid is the rising level of seclusion among these groups rather than the integration of these people.
Our aim is to try and stop this and bring these communities together to better understand one another and integrate themselves properly into the society, allowing them the chance to better communications with the local communities, involving themselves with social activities and trends with out the need to cast aside their own identity/values in order to fit in.
“TO STRENGTHEN THE COMMUNITIES AS A WHOLE, PROVIDING WEST-AFRICANS WITH A MEANS OF ATTAINING SERVICES, RIGHTS BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO THEM”
In line with our vision, our strategy is to ensure all members of this minority ethnic group are able to positively interact with their counterparts and other ethnic communities alike.
The biggest problem facing this community is the absence of infrastructure allowing them to channel their concerns to the appropriate authorities and with the well documented political and military situation on the African continent, most of these settlers are broken families longing for a sense of familiarity with their neighbours. The absence of such social interaction further compounds the current problem of these communities to interact both locally and nationally with the authorities.
The failure of these communities to interact further enhances the negative stereotype often attributed to the youths of these communities.
Overall our job will be to provide adequate resources for these people to channel themselves constructively furthering the goal of proper integration and providing alternatives to the youths of the communities to better apply themselves.
We aim for an almost entirely hands on approach, leaving latitude foot self-development to assure and ensure the collective progression of both the minority groups and the community as a whole, as defined in our core objectives
