Our first aim is
The relieving and prevention of suffering and poverty, the promotion of equality between men and women, and the promotion of conflict resolution and reconciliation of all people from any Black African, Black Caribbean background.
Our second aim is
To advance the education of the general public in the arts and culture of people and communities from Black African, Black Caribbean and any other Black African or Black Caribbean Backgrounds by any means as the trustees in their discretion shall determine.
Donations we Accept
Due to money laundering and the charity commissions regulations, we will need to know more about donors that make more than a single donation of £50,000. The same scrutiny will be applied to anyone that leaves over £100, 000 behind in their will for us.
As a result of the above, 20% of all donations to us will go into a special fund to help assist the descendants of all those whose ancestors have stood out as having made outstanding sacrifices for our community (the descendants that have applied to have access to the funds). The remaining 80% will go towards our effort to secure Nyeungana.
If you believe in what we stand for then as a member of our community we will encourage you to donate a minimum of 5% of your income to us. Remember, we have an open accounting policy so all donations received and a detailed account of all expenditures will be published on our website.
