Karibu seeks to improve the lives of African and refugee women and their families by creating a place where they can meet and support one another. It aims to empower vulnerable women to engage with services and increase their self-esteem and confidence. Based in Glasgow, Karibu provides advice and information and opportunities to learn new skills – in sewing, computers, catering as well as through providing ESOL and volunteer and work placements.

At the October meeting in 2015, the Foundation awarded a £3,500 grant to Karibu, to contribute towards the volunteer coordination and help with running costs.
