Young People

CeSAU has developed multi-faceted activities that are geared towards engaging young people in schools and the wider community, with the aim of inspiring them to stay off the streets and out of mischief. We encourage peer-mentoring among children and young people through their work and thereby help to create a youth culture built on responsibility and respect of positive social values. We aim to promote social inclusion through multifaceted African performing arts activities that are accessible to all even as our mission is to raise the profile of African performing arts through training and development of new and existing talent and by creating and delivering innovative, cross cultural performances that fuse musical genre.

Special Campaign

CeSAU, FV NHS and African Caribbean Women Association are teaming up to promote awareness about Sickle disease in Scotland. Our aim is to establish a drop- in- centre and provide support for sufferers and careers. The disease is a disabling genetic condition which destroys the red blood cells. A sickle cell crisis is life threatening condition and requires proper and effective control by medical specialist and health staff.

Sustainability and Self Reliance

All activities that CeSAU establishes are planned to be sustainable in the long term and this is reinforced by CeSAU members for an unlimited time period.

Gender and Family focus

Gender refers to the socially defined roles of men and women in each culture. CeSAU encourages men and women to share decision making and the benefits accruing from activities.

Full Participation 

CeSAU works with different groups, or organisations representing people, and is committed to involving and encouraging all members to be involved in decision making locally and, nationally.

Training and Education: Comprehensive practical training in management; financial management; leadership skills are on- going.

Monitoring and evaluation:

At the end of every activity, CSAU evaluates the extent of lasting change brought by the effort using a specific evaluation process. Based on the evaluation, successful activity may be replicated in another community to broaden the impact.

Members meeting:

Communities are the foundation of all CeSAU activities, hence, the need for frequent members meetings. These allow for consultation, feed- back and dissemination of information and also enable the group members get to know each other better. This took place on 11th September 2012- a number of new members were in attendance. A video on Sickle Cell disease was shown which stimulated a positive debate.
The Forth Valley NHS Chief Dietician made a presentation on Healthy Lifestyles and diet. This project will be on going in 2013

Breast awareness seminar:

This took place under the auspices of Stirling Multi Cultural Partnership supported by the FV NHS and Stirling Council. A number of African women attended this successful and informative seminar.

We continue to celebrate the lives and achievements of Africans and Africans in diaspora through the Annual events. This year we are sharing our culture with two organisations in Stirling: Riverbank Resource Centre and Street Ahead.
