The Radiant and Brighter team are taking part in the Kiltwalk 2019 this year. Radiant and Brighter is an organisation founded by Micheal and Pheona Matovu after experiencing years of unemployment as a result of immigration controls and gaps in employment support provision. From their personal experience and learning acquired during this period, they started up an initiative to provide much-needed support for migrant communities. Radiant and Brighter provide Orientation and Wellbeing, Leadership and Enterprise, Workforce Diversification and support programs for young people from BME communities.
Last year they raised just over £12,000. This year they are hoping to raise £20,000 for a Radiant and Brighter Community Hub. The hub will provide a warm and safe environment for our clients to use throughout the day. It will be a place for the Radiant and Brighter family to call home, and they are hoping to set up a café within the premises to serve hot meals all day. The premises will provide space for them to continue to carry out free events and activities to the community. Donate to their cause or join them in the walk!
