Parenting Training Programme
We equip parents with essential tools and strategies to foster positive parent-child relationships, emotional well-being, and character development in children and young people. The training aims to provide practical guidance, expert insights, and a supportive community to empower parents in navigating the challenges of modern parenting and promoting a nurturing environment for the holistic growth of their children.
We believe in
That parents with a positive mindset, armed with effective communication tools and emotional balance, can create an environment where children not only survive but thrive. We champion the idea that fostering a positive parent-child relationship is the cornerstone for a child’s holistic development.
Empowering Through Emotional Balance
Building Resilient Futures
We are committed to the notion that modern parenting, infused with empathy and informed strategies, can shape resilient and confident individuals. By providing parents with the tools to understand and nurture their child’s unique qualities, we believe in contributing to a generation that not only excels academically but also embodies kindness, resilience, and a deep sense of self-worth.

At Afrikindness, children are our top priority, and we recognise the unique challenges they face in today’s digital era. With an alarming rise in mental health issues among young people, the need for adequate support is more pressing than ever. NHS reports suggest one in five children in England aged 8 to 25 had a probable mental disorder in 2023.
Research from the University of Cambridge emphasises the profound impact of warm and loving parent-child relationships on mental well-being and prosocial behaviours. Every parent aspires to raise responsible, resilient children, and the Parenting with Purpose Training addresses this aspiration.
The course equips parents, particularly from underrepresented communities, with essential skills to integrate cultural values into positive parenting, fostering a nurturing environment for their children’s healthy development.
