Testimonials | What people say about us
Even though I am a Micro-Biology graduate, I was unable to find employment for 2 years and was feeling very helpless when I met a Radiant and Brighter team member in a café. I have learned so much from Radiant and Brighter and if it wasn’t for them, I would not have been able to achieve what I have with regard to becoming self-employed. I have managed to obtain useful contacts that will help me in the promotion of my business. I strongly believe, there is need for advisors who understand ethnic minority issues. Day to day personal challenges can make people lose hope. Working with someone who comes from the same background inspired me to keep going and I am grateful to them for encouraging me to follow my dream.

I was an assistant professor at a university in my country but found it hard in my new community. I came to Radiant and Brighter for an English language class. I now attend three classes and the information and guidance I receive have changed my life in many ways. I think differently and more positively about the situation am in and most of all I know my next step. The support has been very helpful especially as it helped me better focus on mine and my children’s future. I understand a lot more about the community I live in and how it works. I had been to many other organisations before, but coming to Radiant and Brighter, I found a home and made good friends. The information is not just academic, it is practical and classes are more than that, they are a family with close relations.

The character building workshop ran by Radiant and Brighter had a lasting impact on all of us, students, graduates, and even those among us that have successfully run social enterprises. We were taught the value of our time, how to really play to our strengths every day and break down our own personal barriers to achieve any goals. All of which I am sure anyone would agree, are excellent life lessons.
