We Are Here To Empower The Community
Teakisi continues to evolve in more ways that one, with the aim of empowering African women and connecting with the wider community, we have set up outreach programmes including courses which boost technical skillsets of African women, local community and our global network.
Awarded Funding For Projects
The underlying purpose of the small grants fund is to build on our successful Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) Covid Community Champions programme and extend this to the wider community. These Champions pass on key public health messages to the community in a range of different languages and formats.
Capturing The Strength & Voices Of African Women
If you have a gift in storytelling, empowering through words and celebrating women – join us and together we can change that narrative of the African woman.
What Our Service Users Say
Lovely event with a light-touch, informal and friendly feel. I had a chance to catch up with people I had not seen in ages, as well as to meet a few new people. My suggestions would be for a greater range of entertainment (I’m a big fan of Georgia May and Daps, and they were great), to showcase some of the different kinds of talent in the NE. Food from the African continent or diaspora. And something slightly more structured (but still light-touch, fun and social) to encourage people to get to know about each other, and to find out more about Teakisi and the different initiatives which support different cultures and exchange and sharing in the region.
Had a great time at the event. The team were great and welcoming.
All the show was amazing. Also the staff were very caring for the guests.
It was a wonderful event. Great location, great music and great company.
The event was very positive and feel good. Much needed! A good choice of venue size and atmosphere friendly.
It was such a warm and generous evening and a real pleasure to attend. I met quite a few people who I’d either not seen since before lockdown, or had never met in person and also new people. It was great to make new connections and also witness connections being made!
