OUR DIVERSE RANGE OF CURRENT PROJECTS: BLACK CHILDREN IN CARE: HEALTH, HAIR AND SKIN
We have designed and written a 100 page book titled ‘Black Children in Care: Health, Hair and Skin’ for use by Local Authorities, Voluntary Organisations, Adopters, and Foster Carers, designed to address the lack of information that persists with the care of Black children in Cross Cultural Fostering and Adoption placements. Some of the topics we raise in the book are the importance of Race, Culture, Heritage, and confidence in the black child in care, skin and hair, sickle cell among other issues. The book will be self-published by us this year, printed and available to purchase a very exciting time for positiveimageproject.
ICONIC INSPIRATIONAL AND SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS T SHIRTS
Our exciting , popular, Iconic, socially conscious and inspirational T shirts ‘STILL I RISE’ PHENOMENAL WOMAN, and AIN’T I A WOMAN, have been inspired by the exploits of our cultural Heroes and Sheroes.
