What we do?

Our Vision

Our vision at Blossom Foundation is to be the one-stop shop for every black girl in Greater Manchester, irrespective of whether she is new to the city or has lived in the city all her life.

How do we work?

Our Approach

We help black African girls aged 10-20 living in Greater Manchester by identifying and addressing any issues that might impact their overall well-being. This includes social, physical, emotional, and economic aspects of their lives, and we work to support them in achieving their full potential.

I am a Youth Leader and a mother, and I love TikTok, but I am still working my way around it. I love food photography and cooking, so I cook and look forward to taking photos. I have worked with young people for over seven years, and daily, I see the reasons why I love working with young people. I am a writer and I love to coach and mentor young people. I am all for Netflix, so I enjoy watching a movie or two and can act out a scene; you must catch me on the big screen someday.
