Baraka Youth Association

The Baraka Youth Association is a supplementary school and community organisation founded for the benefit of children and young people in particular those of Somali and other ethnic minority groups. A rough translation of Baraka is ‘good luck’ or ‘blessing’.

“I think it's important to experience other people’s lifestyles and the areas they live in. It gives us the chance to expand our knowledge on other communities and gives us a better understanding on young people’s lives.”
