Jambo from everyone at Mojatu Foundation!

As lockdown and the Corona Virus outbreak continues, we would like to show you the various activities that Mojatu have been conducting throughout these difficult times.

Working together as a community to support everyone is vital in getting through this. Whether you need support or would like to help volunteer please look below for the links.

Since March, Mojatu has been distributing food parcels to those in need, conducting our various training programmes to help those in need to improve their work prospects during this difficult time. We have also started the "Women of Nottingham" podcast to elevate & celebrate a range of inspiring women's stories across the city.

Please donate towards our fundraising for food parcels and our refugee support efforts in Lesvos, and follow Mojatu on our social media platforms (linked above), where we look to increase awareness around ongoing issues such as mental health, women's issues, FGM in addition to others.

For more support and guidance, please feel free to get in touch with us directly at any point through laura@mojatu.com
How we can support
 
We are urging all community members who feel isolated, or need extra support accessing food, housing, clothes or emergency items to get in touch with us, either by phone on 0115 845 7009 or by using our info@mojatu.com email. 
 
If you can support by volunteering to help your neighbours, then please send us an email. We are currently working to map out all of the families we know are in need of support, and ensure we are there when they need us. We will require people who can chat on the phone and people who can volunteer to drive deliveries.

Women of Nottingham Podcast

Brought to you by Kathryn Embree, this podcast highlights the remarkable and diverse stories of women in the city of Nottingham.

In the pilot episode, Pastor Julia Paul speaks on her work in the Nottingham community, supporting FGM survivors and campaigning to end the act once and for all. The long term affects on women, how we can change patriarchal views and how Coronavirus induced isolation poses a concern for women at risk of FGM are discussed.

Our work for the refugees in Lesvos

We are working alongside 'The Unheard Refugees' to support refugees & document the experiences of the refugee population in Lesvos, with the Mojatu Foundation aiming to send 2 pallets of clothing donations out to Lesvos.

We are grateful for the amount of clothes donations we have received so far, but we are now trying to raise the funds to cover the transport costs, as the more clothing means the more pallets we need to send. We have raised £185 so far, which covers one pallet (£150).

We aim to send winter clothes by the end of November so that asylum seekers are prepared for the winter season, as they have been moved to a new camp near the sea, so they are exposed to bad weather and cold nights. We are planning to continue this project into 2021, and we aim to send another parcel out in January.

Please donate through the link below. Any help is appreciated.

My Black Identity

In partnership with Fearless Youth Association & Primary, we have put together free identity creative packs for young people belonging to the African Diaspora to celebrate history, culture and identity.

Alongside the physical creative packs, we will be offering the young people a chance to submit their creativity to an online exhibit.

Training Programmes

Our training and skills development programmes are aimed at tailored to the meet the needs of our communities, who often experience multiple complex disadvantages, enabling them to gain qualifications and skills necessary to participate fully in the economic activities and in addressing economic poverty in our communities.

Our range of courses cover English Language & Conversation, Healthcare & Childcare, Teacher Training & Community Conversation, and Mental Health & First Aid.

To ensure we are still able to run our training programmes during the coronavirus crisis, we are moving them all online! That means, we will be offering hospitality, social work, and other classes online for free.

Food Support during the Coronavirus crisis

Mojatu volunteers distribute food parcels to nearly 90 families across Nottingham every week.

Free laptops for children across Nottingham during Covid19
Following the reviews of the community and alongside partner Fearless Youth Association (FYA), we have been providing young people across the city with laptops to help them not only continue with their education, but have access to their friends and families online. In today’s globalised and almost internet-based society, we believe that access laptops and the internet is a necessity today.
