NTC Love Peace
Programme UK

Challenging issues around violence, mental health & wellbeing for young people in the UK.

NTC has been awarded a £10,000 National Lottery grant to develop our Love Peace Programme and launch it in Havering.

Thank you to the National Lottery.

Nurture The Children (NTC) was awarded a National Lottery grant on 03 September 2019 to work with children between the ages of 4 and 17, on a cultural awareness projects aimed at challenging issues surrounding violence, mental health and wellbeing.

Thanks to the lottery funding, volunteers from the charity will be working with children from different cultural and ethnical backgrounds, in sessions lasting approximately 1-hour*, designed to teach them about the disastrous consequences of violence and the importance of peace. It will also involve teaching the NTC LPP Anthem to all the children in British Sign Language (BSL), so that everyone including hearing impaired children, will be able learn our beautiful theme.

Students will also be learning about the lives and stories of people like Nobel Peace Prize winners Nelson Mandela and Malala Yousafzai to show that strong-willed individuals can make a huge difference. The children will be taught they too can stand up for what is right, and be confident in facing challenges such as physical and cyber bullying, and other pressures from social media.

NTC Pen-pal Scheme

Under an adult-supervised process, Nurture The Children also links younger people with students in Nigeria through the charity’s pen-pal programme. Children in the UK can exchange letters with Nigerian students who are supported by NTC’s Sponsor A Childschool kitchen and community food bank projects in northern Nigeria.

By understanding how violence affects children in Nigeria, NTC hopes UK students will develop a more positive outlook on their own future, appreciating their position and avoiding involvement in violent behaviour, knife crime and gang culture.
