Project aim

Giving children from low income families the opportunity to experience carnival

About the project

ELIMU, Swahili for “Education” or “Knowledge”, originally operated as a community education centre on the Harrow Road servicing Westminster Secondary school pupils excluded from school or truanting on a regular basis. the Project was funded and managed by the Westminster Community Relations Council (WCCR).

Since 1980, Elimu, as a carnival band, has participated in the London Notting Hill Carnival.

Each year we encourage young children to participate in Carnival – as dancers, artisans and artists. We do so by defraying their costs of participating for those most in need 

You donations will go towards supporting young people, mainly boys, who are keen to participate in Carnival but due to financial constraints are unable to do so.
