About Us

Genesis Impact was founded by Foluke Akingbolagun as a youth club 22 years ago. As a mother of 4 boys, she found a lack of youth clubs and activities to keep children off the streets in Greenwich and Bexley. Since our inception, Genesis Impact has worked with over 5000 families in schools settings and the B.A.M.E community. We work in the most deprived areas in Greenwich and Bexley. Consequently, our beneficiaries have extremely high adult and child safeguarding needs.

 

COVID-19

Our Impact

As a direct result of COVID-19, we have simultaneously witnessed a dramatic increase in the safeguarding needs of the families we already worked with and a significant increase in the number of families who are now "at-risk".

The areas of wellbeing that have been affected are mental, physical and economic. To support our parents we are running the following services

  1. A Mental Health Clinic

  2. A Dance Fitness Programme 

  3. Professional Pitching

  4. Industry Mentoring 

  5. Hardship Support 

  6. 1 on 1 Family

OUR MODEL

Our core aim is the Strengthen Communities. From our days as a youth club, we realised there are four essential factors required for children to thrive. The four factors to produce Happy Children are a Happy Home; a Community; Education; and a Future. We have developed this into our Happy Child Model, which succinctly communicates our approach to strengthening communities.

HAPPY HOME

We develop the knowledge, skills, and holistic wellbeing of parents to produce happy parents who will are empowered to rear happy children.

COMMUNITY

We build trust and awareness between local agencies and beneficiaries to ensure vulnerable families do not fall through the net.

EDUCATION

We improve employment prospects and enterprise skills, to improve the economic standing of families and children.

FUTURE

We nurture the potential of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and ensure that no hurdle is too high

Our Impact

Between 2019- 2020 during the height of the Cornovirus Pandemic, we worked with over 500 families.  Our Impact report for this year will be available very soon. In the meantime please feel free to view our impact Report for the preceding year

 

Genesis has played a pivotal role in my life. Joining Genesis when I was still in primary school until I left college, I was able to learn key life lessons, values and gain lifetime friends. From there, I was introduced to stable families, examples of professional and relational success in my community and all this formed

 

the desire in me to succeed and the belief that I could do anything I wanted to, and that NOTHING could limit me. Today I feel proud to say I'm a doctor, and practice as a GP. I know that my foundation with Genesis was the best start I could have, despite not having the best home life, I was not left disadvantaged. I will forever be grateful to Aunty Foluke and the whole team of Genesis for their work in me!
