Teakisi continues to evolve in more ways than one, with the aim of connecting with the wider community. Currently, our outreach involves organising face to face and online events that bring African women, members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic group, and the wider community together. Our outreach hopes to connect, engage and build a community spirit.
Who Are Our Services For?
Enhanced public services, targeted on those most disadvantaged, are conceived as the best means of reducing the impact of inequalities faced by African women and breaking the cycles of prejudice, racism and institutional racism.
Teakisi’s expansive community hub services offer a wide range of events, welcoming members of the community from all walks of life. With a strive for togetherness, we aim to continue to bring people together representing the diverse groups of our community. Following many successful connections, Teakisi continues to welcome collaborations and partnerships with other organisations.

What People Say
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.
It’s nice to know that we have ladies committed to help us get what we think it’s not possible. Teakisi showed me that everyone, no matter your age or gender you can do trainings in every category and be what you want to be. Thank you again Teakisi. Remain strong for us.
It’s truly an amazing job that Teakisi is doing to uplift the African woman in as many ways possible. I have had the privilege of attending this year’s Coffee Meet-up during the pandemic lockdown. It was a wonderful opportunity to link up and connect with the many voices that T has brought together. It couldn’t have been done any better given the circumstances. Perhaps one suggestion, if at all it makes sense: is it possible to do some podcasts of the content uploaded by different writers? I think it would pack quite an additional punch and weight to the rich stories being written here. Peace!
