The need for our services was amplified during Covid-19, we empower African women and the wider community through the provision of outreach training courses, financial education programmes and regular get togethers for social inclusion
Though the majority of those who access our services are African women, we are inclusive which means our services are open to everyone in the North East of England. We also support a small percentage of others from outside the region.
With our outreach programs, we hopes to educate, connect, engage and build a community spirit.

Safeguarding Policy Statement
In our work we meet many adults who are potentially at risk for a variety of reasons. We aim to create a safe environment in which no adult will experience harm or exploitation during their contact with us.
Our Team & Leadership
Our team brings a wealth of experience from their chosen fields – full of personality minus the ego. We are the wearer of many hats dedicated to amplifying the voices of African women, and yours. Teakisi is also powered by selfless individuals who want to see us achieve our goals and go places. Our work would not be fulfilled today without their constant support.
Founder, Artistic Director & Exec-Editor
I am a social entrepreneur, gender equality, empowerment champion and a self-taught blogger with multiple skills that I’ve acquired over the past 11 years. Fuelled by my passion for empowering and promoting African girls and women, their voices, equality and diversity, I consider myself a ‘forever student,’ eager to both build on my academic foundations in Sociology and Politics, while staying in tune with the latest digital and in person strategies that will amplify the voices of African women, my local community and those of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities.
When I am not all things Teakisi, you’ll catch me watching Thor: Ragnarok over and over again. Or is it Infinity War and End Game?
I am a member of the Ishami Foundation which works towards bringing awareness of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsis, in regards to her own personal experience with the Rwandan Genocide. I believe in amplifying the stories of the voiceless, taking pride and power in them. Over the years, I has developed strong skills in childcare while also working as a teaching assistant. I am also passionate about bringing people together to collaborate in ways in which they can work towards a better community.
I am a proud mother of two children.
I’m a child care worker with a 10 year old son. My earlier work experiences were in the tourism sector before caring for children and young people. My day-to-day work sees me getting involved in different selection of activities that stimulate the minds of young children.
I am a very organised person who enjoys going for walks, going out with friends, listening to music, swimming and watching action movies.
