Our story

We have been blessed with opportunities to sit at the feet of some of the greatest minds in the African-centred world.

Our Head Quarters in South London has been the home and open house for many progressive community organisations. We have an impressive track record of providing services for young people and have been fortunate enough to work with amazing individuals.

Our Rites of Passage programmes are built on solid foundations, where theory moves to practice, issues to change and ideas realised.

We trace our history back to 1988. In 2000 we embraced the term ‘African inspired Rites of Passage’ to best describe our work.

We specialise in designing and delivering Rites of Passage programmes for young people in their transition to adulthood. We work very closely with parents and other people important in the lives of the young people because we hold the very strong view that there are limitations to working with young people in isolation of their families and wider community.

By working in this way we see real change, not just in the lives of the young people but with their families too. The sum total of these relationships transforms the very nature of the communities in which we live.
