Blossom Foundation has been a blessing to my daughter because of the vast valuable activities regularly organised by the organiser and her team.
Self-care, confidence, bullying, enterprise, mentorship, to mention a few, are some of the activities organised. My daughter has blossomed so much that her younger sister was looking forward to joining her and has finally joined her now she is old enough. Thank you so much Ruth and to your team and volunteers for the positive impact you have on our children, God bless you all.
Blossom foundation has really transformed my daughter. She is more confident and interactive now.
Before, she used to be very shy, can’t express herself or any issues at home or at school. Now she is bold to speak up and ask questions, makes new friends easily and manage her physical and emotions wellbeing. I am so happy with the way Blossom Foundation supports the young girls. I want to use this opportunity to thank the mentors for the 1:1 sections, it really helped a lot.
As a Mum, I can testify that my daughter has been tremendously supported through Blossom. Her self-confidence has improved and she is now able to help other young girls.
Blossom isn’t only concerned about the girls, they also care about the parents too. Lots of workshops and events are being organised for parents to support them in whatever challenges they encounter in raising their girls. Blossom provides excellent information and support system for both girls and their parents. Through Blossom, minority ethnic groups girls who are disadvantaged, have been adequately supported to boost their mental wellbeing, positive behaviour, good self-esteem and thereby making them better girls in the community.
Thanks to Blossom foundation for the mother and daughter’s Intervention where we had the group coaching and DBT sessions.
The group coaching helped me to know and understand my teenage daughter better and it helped my daughter to understand things from my own point of view as well. Blossom foundation is a great organisation for the BME Girls.
Doing group therapy with my mum enabled me to open up and share things with her. I’m now able to see her side of things and understand why she may make certain Decisions.
I also had a few DBT sessions on my own which allowed me to talk about things that depressed me and learnt practical ways to deal with them. Now I find confidence in myself and am able to ask for help in situations, I also started journaling my thoughts as a hobby and to keep myself organised. It has been a really good experience and exposed me to right things. Thank you so much Blossom Foundation for always supporting me.
