Black led organisations making a difference

We Are The IROKO


I'm nominating Chinwe Osaghae because she goes above and beyond to aid the development and growth of the Milton Keynes community through inspirational workshops, presentations and speeches. She doesn't just impact people of black origin but finds ways to bring together the diverse range of people here in Milton Keynes.

Firm Foundation


I am the owner of a private tutoring organisation (Firm Foundation Course) which started in Milton Keynes about 20 years ago. I am a private tutor myself. In seeing the need to keep children occupied out of school hours and boost their learning further so they can reach their true potential, I also arranged for other tutors to attend and teach students at the premises where we are based. We teach children in primary and secondary school ranging from Reception Year up to Year 13. We follow the National Curriculum and teach all the core subjects including Maths, English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and well as other requested subjects. In December 2021, I received an Award from Milton Keynes Council in recognition of achieving the minimum education standards required and for contributing to the education of the children in Milton Keynes. This was given to me by the Mayor of Milton Keynes. My organisation aims to boost the confidence of the student by patiently going over varied tasks within the curriculum and using different questioning techniques which helps the learner comprehend the work at hand. We work in collaboration with the student and parents in order to bring the best out of the learner. Firm Foundation Course runs small group sessions. However, each learner is given individual attention within the group and the tutor ensures each tutee has made progress in every session. I believe I am the only female individual in Milton Keynes that has been able to establish a base where students have the option of attending tuition for all the core subjects in person or online at an affordable rate. Where students have needed extra sessions and parents have not been able to pay due to financial challenges, I have sponsored students to attend sessions at no extra cost to the parent. Firm Foundation Course has a very high success rate which a lot of parents can testify to.

Alice has been working tirelessly with her team in Milton's Keynes to support and empower BAME communities and young people in the Milton's Keynes. Her work is evident with young people Capacity programmes and upcoming event with Thames Valley Police. Also she has given us a WhatsApp platforms where business people advertise their businesses. Additionally, those social media platforms people use to share opportunities and enhancing social support networks.

Alice’s concerns encompass the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, disproportionate police stop and search practices affecting BAME communities, inadequate housing, unemployment, overrepresentation of BAME children in care and the criminal justice system, knife crime, shootings, grooming, drug trafficking, and antisocial behavior linked to complex family issues. Additionally, she recognises the challenges faced by BAME communities in maintaining their cultural identity due to suspected gang activity, extremism, radicalization, as well as post-migration difficulties such as cultural differences, racism, discrimination, language barriers, and lack of social support. Persistent academic underachievement is also a matter of concern. These issues have garnered significant attention in UK media and have been raised by parents and guardians within the BAME community. Alice’s growing concern reveals systemic flaws and a lack of understanding and awareness regarding the needs of BAME communities. Urgent improvements are needed to ensure equal and fair distribution of public services
