Young people who are part of Rafiki and Kamosi

Rafiki and Kamosi

The Rafiki/Motswako project was originally set up in 2001 by Wigan MBC’s Youth Service to provide a safe separate space for young refugees and asylum seekers. It has represented important provision in a borough that has relatively less experience of resident culturally diverse communities compared to other Greater Manchester boroughs. It has since developed its provision to include all black young people and most recently new European migrant communities.

Throughout the Exodus programme, CAN has prioritised work with this group and has developed a range of film-making and live performance programmes with opportunities to showcase their work in Manchester as well as the borough of Wigan.

With support from BBC Children in Need, a new programme of work was rolled out in 2012 with Rafiki and a new youth group called Kamosi based in Leigh which works with both girls and boys from European Roma migrant communities.
