We implement various programs such as drug use prevention, stranger awareness, building self-esteem and other programs which address current issues children are facing. Remember today's children are tomorrow's future. Our aim is to enable children from refugee communities and other socially excluded groups to develop confidence and social skills through participating in sport that will improve children's performance at school and improve their employment prospects. The organisation established since 2005.
With an office base in Camden from which it organises traditional dance and sporting activities for children and young people. Also the close management of Camden Olympic Wrestling Club and Congolese and French speaking supplementary school. The first activity the charity established was wrestling because a trustee is a qualified coach and a member of the British Wrestling Association.
The second was a Traditional Dance group named Ngoma Africa followed by others based in Camden.

Company description
However, the longer-term ambition is to include other sports as resources permit. The response from children and young people was very positive and over 60 children and young people aged from 10 to 25 years of age are currently active members of these Four activities, which meet once a week for two-hour sessions every Saturday at Thornton heath Leisure centre, every Thursday at Maitland Park sport centre and every Tuesday at Queen's crescent community centre. The participants of the Camden Olympic Wrestling Club and of the supplementary school are mostly resident of Camden area, and they come from local schools and colleges, from contact with the National Association of Asylum Seekers and through word of mouth. The majority 70% are from refugee communities including Iran, Iraq, the Congo, Angola, Somalia and Cameroon and Ivory cost. Our wrestling clubs have affiliated to the British Wrestling Association which provides insurance and often have been taking part in competitions, including one in Holland, France, Germany and Belgium.
