The story behind our story
Insight Africa UK promotes good relations and diversity through educational, interactive and cultural activities. We explore ways of breaking down racial barriers by looking at African cultures and African people in a more balanced way
What Children and young people learn from the TV, newspapers and the internet – starvation, abject poverty, disease, war and famine forms a major part of their understanding of Africa. We do not deny that what they portray is true but we believe that children need to be given a balanced view of the continent so they become aware that there is more to Africa than the media presents.
Undoubtedly the need to promote better relationships, diversity, and community cohesion within the United Kingdom which is becoming more multicultural and multi-racial as a result of globalisation cannot be over emphasised. Children and young people in the UK are part of this diverse global community so it is important to instil within them, values that foster understanding and acceptance of diversity through cultural and racial awareness.
Through fun and interactive activities we educate young people by stimulating them to want to explore Africa, it’s people and cultures and in doing this we break down racial barriers.
Enhance global learning by promoting a balanced view of Africa, would help remove stereotypes projected by the media thereby promoting good relations and diversity. This will ultimately help prepare young people in their journey through secondary schools and beyond in a globalized community.
Also aims to help schools and organisations achieve their community cohesion agenda and also meet their Ofsted requirements as our presentations comply with Education Legislation.
