Ensemble Manchester’s aimsOur aim is to create a sustainable supplementary school model, capable of serving the needs of the wider community in the Greater Manchester area and beyond.
Preserving our children’s bilingual heritage and cultural identity. Our activities teach children about their bilingual heritage, so they can become aware of their cultural identity. We encourage young people to research family history, and to connect with each other and their community. Our French Supplementary School programme encourages children to become confident language learners with clearly defined values and beliefs, so they can grow up to become productive members of society.
Helping Franco-Africans embrace their past and achieve their potential.
Our approach helps to inform people about their heritage, so they can feel included, achieve a stronger sense of identity, and contribute positively to their community, wherever they are in the world. In Manchester, we have helped French-speaking people of Cameroon descent to become more secure and confident. We continue to support these communities, so they can feel comfortable with their place in Manchester and with respect to their heritage.
