Last week I attended a meeting for the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, where it came to my attention.
A charity set up to help impoverished African girls receive education.
This charity is called Education for Indigent Girls in Africa, or EFIG for short. Why is it so important? Because, as its founder and chairperson Gladys Simeon says:
“EDUCATION IS NOT FREE OR COMPULSORY IN AFRICA.”
If you’d like to donate or otherwise show your support, or even just get more information, see their website here: www.efig-africa.org.uk.

EQUALISING LIFE CHANCES AND ACCESS TO JUSTICE FUNDRAISING EVENT
This event is a unique opportunity to share and contribute to the effort to support some of the poorest and most underprivileged children in Africa and to provide access to justice to the most vulnerable members of our local communities. The combined event is symbolic of the universality of the challenge to secure equality and social justice for all regardless of background or identity. This event is both awareness-raising and fundraising, and is hosted by the charitable gesture of a local businessman Mr Abbassi (The GRILL) to benefit the work of Education for Indigent Girls (EFIG), Ealing Equality Council (EEC) and the Community Advice Programme (CAP).
You will enjoy a sumptuous meal in the company of representatives of well known personalities in the struggle for equality and justice. The event has informal format to promote conversation and networking.
The speakers who will provide guidance on the theme of the event are: Gladys Simeon, Jo Sidhu QC and Kwame Akuffo.
