Christian church leader Rev Nick Nunayon is spearheading efforts to get Black children into leading schools and universities like Oxford and Cambridge via The Kingsgen Foundation, an award-winning charity he founded in 2010.
He believes Black children should be encouraged and helped to attend top schools and universities because they’ll receive a quality education.
The KF organises annual trips to Cambridge and Oxford for young people, so they get insight into what it might be like to study there.
It also hosts conferences for parents and young people, and a Computer Coding and Robotic Academy, to ignite young people’s interests in STEM subjects. It provides mentoring in Lewisham and Croydon, where it is set up.
KF is an organisation that seeks to have an impact. Rev Nunayon stated: “Parents have shared how informative and empowering they’ve found the special events we’ve held, whilst their children have stated that attending our initiatives has opened up their minds to the fact that attending a leading university is not an impossible dream and has given them the confidence to apply.”
