Story

Bringing People Together : Africentric Parenting Skills Course in the UK

We are driven by the views expressed by Shirley Chisholm, first African American woman to be elected to Congress: “You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas”. Help us to help migrants in the greatest need to overcome the barriers that affect their ability to thrive, for communities experiencing high levels of migration become stronger and more connected.

This project would not have been possible without the support of Together Middlesbrough & Cleveland, Family Mediation Centre and Destiny Creations C.I.C. Although Partnership working is valuable in itself, in this case, the Partnership was vital as there is a manual on parenting here in the United Kingdom. Both Family Mediation Centre and Destiny Creations C.I.C were able to facilitate the course using their expertise. The experience of parents captured through advocacy, casework and gathering information has enabled three organisations to give a picture of the circumstance of children in care.

Through the feedback forms completed by the participants, it is clear the world of difference this course has made to the lives of families.

According to one of the beneficiaries of Africentric Parenting Skills Course 101, in her statement "who said there wasn't a manual to parenting?, I keep on saying there is manual, there is something, why was this course not there years ago?, why didn't we have this course, I wish we have this course years ago, I have learned so much, is like a life saver, you said your prayer, and God answer your prayer, He brought this course at the right time".

We want to reduce the number of Black Afrikan and Afrikan-Carribean children being taken into care. We will achieve this by helping parents to avoid conflict with education and social care personnel; the Africentric Parenting Courses help parents to understand UK more and customs and the legal framework that underpins them. Black children are over-represented in care services; the cost is massive both in terms of money and in terms of the life-long impact it has on those children.

We need more capital funding support for the listed activities below

– To recruit & train Legal Officers

- To recruit & train an Administrator

– To recruit & train Case Workers

We aim to promote the aspirations of Africa and its Diaspora; in particular to promote culture, values, economic and socio-political initiatives in Teesside.

Imagine if your heritage or lineage was slowly on decline, what would be your faith?, Please let us collectively join hands and make good things happen!!

Help us promote equality and diversity, and thank you in anticipation for your donations and support. Every penny will counts, and also help us share through your contacts.
