Our aim at Blossom Foundation is to Educate, Inspire & Empower the BME Black African girls in the age group of 10-20 through their transitional stages of becoming a full-blown adult.
This is so that we can identify issues from an early stage and intervene to make corrections to help them be the best they can be in all life aspects be it social, physical, emotional and economic wellbeing.
Our Objectives are:
To educate girls and young women through one to one sessions and coaching.
To raise awareness on issues that affect young girls like mental health, bullying, self-image, peer pressure
To provide a voice through social media platforms and a talk show for girls to share stories and learn from other people’s experiences
To create a link between young girls and statutory service provision
To create inter-generational dialogue for smooth family and community cohesion
Culturally sensitive counselling, coaching and mentoring services
To provide leisure and Away reflective days and camps for young people
To develop Life skills, and improve self-confidence.
Blossom foundation has really transformed my daughter. She is more confident and interactive now. Before, she used to be very shy, and couldn’t express herself with any issues at home or at school.? Now, she is bold to speak up and can 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 in our community.
I want to use this opportunity to thank the mentors for the 1-2-1 sessions, it has really helped a lot.
Blossom has been a source of support for my daughter and our family, during and after the pandemic. Blossom has helped our daughter’s self confidence and she has learnt how to be a leader and how to be more organised and to work as part of a team.
My daughter really enjoyed the support received from Blossom. Regarding her attitude and behaviour to her problem solving around teenage issues, she is more open with her siblings and can get through her issues more independently.
Since my sisters have been attending the 1 on 1 sessions, I’ve seen a lot of growth in them. They’re more open about how they feel and have clear ways of communicating that. Before it used to be hard understanding why they were upset about certain situations, but they have come into their own. I’m really grateful for the work that the mentors have put in – my youngest sister used to basically hate talking and would be labelled as shy but now she just can’t wait for her sessions! Thank you so much for your hard work, may God continue to bless this project.
Our organisation has worked collaboratively with Blossom foundation on 2 projects and Blossom have provided motivational talks and workshops for young people and parents involved in our organisation. Well done for all the difference that your organisation is making to advance the lives of young people particularly your tailor-made workshops for girls and mothers in our community.
