Organisation aims and objectives

Project Esperanza has been a credible force for good that has been dedicated to bringing positive change to the lives of women of African heritage living in the United Kingdom since 2016. The service was run voluntarily as a pilot for five years before acquiring charitable status to assess the need for culturally appropriate support services because there were gaps in the services available specifically for Black and African women in Scotland; and a need for inequalities awareness. We now operate as a womanist initiative as well as a leading Scottish registered charity for people of African heritage that is aiming to reduce health and social inequalities through the provision of specific, specialist, faith sensitive and culturally appropriate services; and we are committed to offering practical, mental health and well-being support to women and families of African heritage living in North Edinburgh.
