Karibu Scotland (2012) Karibu Annual Report
The Karibu Scotland (2012) annual report provides an update of the activities of this organisation which provides key support for African women in Glasgow. Promotion of integration is a fundamental part to Karibu Scotland’s work. The organisation works primarily to facilitate the integration of refugee and asylum seeking African women into Scottish society. Karibu provides support to empower African woman and help them access services. The report provides a brief insight into the organisations range of activities designed to aid integration. Karibu runs a sewing project which has resulted in some of the women acquiring skills that have lead to employment. Some women have also begun selling some of their work successfully in one of Oxfam’s Glasgow stores. An enterprising project - the Taste of Africa Café - provides outside catering. In addition, a number of fundraising events are run by Karibu. The report concludes by outlining some of the challenges which lie ahead for Karibu Scotland alongside the organisation’s plans for the future.
