Research & Consultancy

Research in Afrikindness is concerned with fostering positive racial identity in schools, with a focus on identity crisis that affects the mental health of children and young people, especially from minority ethnic communities. 

Afrikindness defining purpose is to build a generation of children and young people who will transform their communities and world through Kindness. It is, however, essential to equip and enable children and young people to thrive within an increasingly insecure, complex, unequal, and less compassionate world.

Following a series of dialogue sessions with African diaspora parents whose children have suffered identity crises, drawing on the latest race studies, a survey of teachers in the UK seeking more knowledge on racial diversity, and lack of community awareness on the impact of race on children - Afrikindness Research team was formed to put a focus on these issues and the existing gaps in resources, information, and training.

Therefore, our research goal is to further explore social, and emotional issues children face relating to race, understand the intersection of race and children in the UK, understand parenting in black communities, focus on implicit racial biases in schools, inclusivity and seek a sustainable solution to help parents, teachers, children and the society at large learn more about race, culture, and history.

The outcome of our research will drive the projects for children, teachers, and parents.
