As a resident from Vassall Road for the past 19 years and a recent law graduate, I am very aware of the obstacles faced by many Afro- Caribbean children in the area. It is what prompted me to set up a charity called Black Lives and more.
We aim to -
Help to unify African diaspora in the uk and help develop and enable growth within the community.
We hope to do this by having black history lesson throughout the year enabling children of African diaspora to feel appreciated recognised and important and to help them alongside general education.
We want this service to be free and need donations from people like you for this project to happen.
We need to purchase books and create flyers and worksheets for the school and any money you donate will be going towards these things.
Further we hope to conduct research in marginalisation with jobs and promotions in the work for African diaspora and lobby the government to create laws to help social mobility and diversity within the work place. We hope to help young people that feel marginalised and help them set up business this way they can still make money and not have to reply solely on the employment industry
.We also want to use the space to help those planning to go university that is an idea that will be developed upon later on.
£1 goes a long way so please give as much as you can !!
