African Initiatives - Brunswick Court, Bristol
African Initiatives is a social justice organisation. They work to see a world where everyone has their voice heard and is able to challenge injustice. With partners in Africa we empower communities to demand and exercise their rights. Issues include women's rights, girls' education, sustainable livelihoods, natural resource management and land rights. Their UK education programmes are dedicated to raising awareness, challenging injustice and promoting positive images of the developing world. They have a range of projects, publications, events, workshops and training opportunities available for schools and the wider community.
For a small organisation, being part of a vibrant third sector community such as Brunswick Court is invaluable. African Initiatives can now share ideas - sometimes even projects and partners - with like-minded organisations. It allows their work and approach to be coherent and it means that that their work has wider and greater impact.
