    Story

    My double decker bus which I use to help young people in the capital of London, to escape from gangs and youth violence has been burned to a cinder by a vandal.
    I deliver a music course on my double decker bus to 'at risk' youth. My project works with younger people who have been affected by violence or want a way out of gangs. I started the project last year using my own money because I could see that the current trend of young people being killed in the capital, shows no signs of slowing down. I called my project United Borders because I set out to use this bus to unite borders cut off by violence. We bring an end to rivalries by providing jobs, mediation and a skill in music. Earlier this year my own son was nearly killed in a violent knife attack and was left fighting for his life. Thank god he pulled through. Ever since that day I have vowed to do more work with more urgency and more intensity because our children are crying for help. My bus broke down in a village. The villagers helped me but unfortunately someone has burned the bus to a cinder. I don't want this set back to stop me. I need to raise the funds urgently to buy back another bus and refurbish it again with studio equipment. Please help me. This isn't for me, its for a generation who need our urgent attention. Thank you.

      Just heard your interview on Outlook. London needs more people like you. Hope you get the bus up and running again soon. Thank you in behalf of all those who would like to help but don’t know how.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
