BARAKA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION WELCOMES YOU
Baraka Community Association’s primary objective is to advance education, relieve poverty, promote good health and wellbeing, and provide recreational and cultural activities to promote successful integration of children and young people from ethnic minority backgrounds into the wider society
WHAT WE DO
Baraka seeks to maximise the educational attainment of the children and young people who attend our classes.
We offer homework and study facilities for school-age students, with Maths, English and Science lessons taught by outstanding teachers. Baraka also offers homework clubs. We provide enriching and deepening classes that complement the curriculum and encourage self-expression, such as creative writing, poetry and drawing.
Community Advice / Guidance:
Baraka provides advice on parenting school admissions, healthy living and legal support. Such support enables easier integration and inclusion in society, and helps people access services, education, training, scholarships and employment. Baraka provides this through one-to-one support as well as workshops and seminars.
Outreach: Baraka targets ‘at risk’ young people identified as being in danger of drifting into alienation and criminality. ‘Graduates’ from Baraka, those who have already benefited from the services provided, work as role models and peer mentors.
Baraka provides children and young people with free football, gym sessions and swimming. We also arrange for children to take their Duke of Edinburgh awards. These organised activities are key to enabling healthy, social, mainstream lives for local families, and some programmes are designed specifically for young women.
Creative Projects: Baraka has carried out a number of projects for young people in recent years. These have included the ongoing ‘Garden of Hope’ project with Groundwork London in which young children grew their own vegetables on an allotment.
Following the Grenfell Tower fire disaster in June 2017, Baraka provided tangible relief and assistance. This ranged from practical everyday support to taking families away from North Kensington to enjoy the summer holiday.
Baraka’s support for affected families is ongoing and has included holiday activities for children and community get-together. Baraka has worked closely with other community organisations to ensure that those affected access the appropriate services.
