Afemai Children's Trust is a registered charity working with children in the Afemai area of Edo State, Nigeria, and children living in Yorkshire, United Kingdom. The goal is to give children the opportunity to better themselves, their families and their communities.
Afemai Children's Trust are passionate, committed and determined to make a "real" difference to the children of Afemai and Yorkshire.
Afemai Children's Trust is a new charity founded in 2009, but we have big dreams, big hearts and a huge motivation to make sure we deliver on stimulating and educating the minds of tomorrow.
What we do....
Afemai Children's Trust run on-going projects delivering IT equipment and educational books to the local schools in the Afemai area of Edo State, Nigeria.
The need for educational support in the area is paramount. The schools are over crowded and the equipment is minimal and out dated by any standards.
Afemai Children's Trust offer a wide range of workshops to Yorkshire pupils based around African arts and culture. Our workshops span diverse subjects ranging from cooking healthy African food, having an active lifestyle through African dance, developing listening and leadership skills with our African drumming, being creative with African Mask Making and encouraging the children's imagination through African textiles. Our mission is to positively celebrate Africa and work with schools who are keen to encourage a global outlook.
