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
Very informative and I learned new skills!
The course was very good, I really liked it, there was a very good atmosphere, Salha was very kind and took the time to explain everything to us. thank you very much for everything.
I really enjoyed community Digital Skills Pathway. I’ve learned so many things I didn’t know before. I will continue learning my digital skills to improve myself because I believe in the nearest future everything will become digital. I really appreciate the good job Teakisi is doing by giving people like me an opportunity to take part in the projects, even gave us a tablet to continuous learning and to improve ourself in digital pathways. I want to give a massive thanks to Teakisi whole community, thanks a lot for your awesome work. I want u to know that you are unique – keep making a massive difference in people’s life.
Thank you very much, it was an interesting and useful training.
It was really an educative platform that is helping me to be Computer Literate and competent with the internet. I was really glad to be among the people that were empowered by TEAKISI and I appreciate it and wish them all the best as they keep up with their good work. Our teacher was a very lovely and humble Lady with a good smile that will keep you going.
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.
