iExcel Mentoring is supporting young BAMER people through our concept of ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. We match young people with role model/community parents that offers both practical and emotional support.
The project creates a safe and friendly space for young people to talk about their wellbeing, topical issues affecting them, join in activities and also network with their peers.
There is a special focus on young people with behavioural challenges or are at risk of becoming victims of gang activities.
The increase in youth violence in London has prompted many calls for action and fresh thinking. It is clear that young Black boys and men are disproportionately affected by youth violence. iExcel mentoring project is a response to this call for action.
iExcel mentoring project is both a youth empowerment and community involvement in youth violence prevention project.

Sponsor a Student
Our Sponsor a young person program is aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty by creating a pathway to secondary and tertiary education for young people between the ages of 10 and 24 years in Africa. One in ten African young people is growing up in poverty, where even the bare necessities are hard to come by. In a family where there is no regular income, money goes to food, rent and bills. Finding money for school uniform, proper shoes, textbooks or the next school excursion is often impossible. Through no fault of their own, these children miss out and are isolated from being different. We are working with various charities in Africa to help support young people between the ages of 10 – 24 years. Your financial support will help pay for school fees, school essentials such as school uniform, shoes, textbooks and excursions.
Safe-space and Voice
Meeting forums for young people and adults to meets, share concerns and develop solutions. A place or environment in which a person or category of people can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm.
iExcel Project Aims Are To:
Sponsor a Woman
Sponsor a Woman program is an economic and social empowerment program helping to address poverty by mitigating income insecurity in the low-wage labour market.
The project currently running in Lagos is supporting unemployed women out of poverty, by providing them with opportunities that enable them to improve their lives and wellbeing.
We organise community conversation that brings together members of the community and encourages them to think, discuss and explore various issues that affect people in the community.
We are focusing on community conversation on mental health, bringing people from BAME communities, health practitioners and statutory bodies to discuss mental health issues and develop solutions together.
No one should face life challenges alone! We know it can be hard to cope with the physical, practical and emotional effects of health challenges. It may be more difficult if you don’t have family or friends close by.
Our befrienders (Ore) are trained to offer a listening ear or helping hand to support vulnerable women in the community.
