Coffee Afrik CIC is a community interest organisation, a social enterprise which was founded by two siblings, focusing on mental health & supporting start ups. Having already been funded by Tower Hamlets Council, Peabody Community Foundation, Savoy Hospitality, HCVS, City & Hackney CCG and other respected partners . We also provide workshops about mental health therapy, peer to peer learning, alcohol addiction therapy amongst other programmes.
Our work in Africa supports local people by creating micro businesses, solar panel water pumps and wells. We are a sustainable, efficient and well run social enterprise, with a very generous heart. Also launching the first BAME focused co working space in 2019, we are thriving, about love and about the community.
Coffee Afrik CIC began its journey on a kitchen table, a close brother and sister team, with an idea to introduce homely community projects and events, with a wellness and mindfulness goal. Changing lives and impacting the community positively. We also run community outreach events including empowerment programmes, book clubs & parties, see a video of our recent community event below.
