MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER.

We (The One Love Foundation UK cic) Have been full on pushing forward with this vision of better youth development and healthier living, youth support for the needed and worst effected areas in society, community spirit , collective community involvement, resourceful living environment regeneration, earth and people care, building and retaining relationships through music, human values and morals regarding the future, and the bigger more ambitious EPIC QUEST ALTERNATIVE school and youth/community center.
We strongly believe that knowledge should be free and accessible to all who want to obtain it, we want the chance also to show that if delivered in the right way in a nice, safe and warm learning environment through understanding, patience, mutual respect and personal close quarter interactive teaching methods anyone can thrive and excel in any or all subjects given to them.
Part of our philosophy is that love and laughter should be a main ingredient in everyone’s life’s daily,
We will be using them a lot at the school.

So a brief update in the 4 months passed we have secured a premises in Wallis avenue Southend on sea Essex, been granted planning and the licences needed to operate a fully functioning education facility, we’ve had one full lesson with 20 children and are now in the process of finalizing the plans, aims, objectives and everything else that is needed to make this positive and lovely venture happen and flourish for the good of the all.

Positive actions and steady dedication towards community partnerships, youth support of all kinds and good honest education that is free, assessable and available is our core foundation and is what we feel and believe is needed for all children to grow into caring and loving adults, and for society as a whole a nicer place to live.

Love, blessings and support is what we need to prosper and spread this effort to the masses, should they so want it.

All funds, proceeds, profits raised from all events goes directly to this cause. without the generosity of you it would take a long time to make this work.

THANK YOU ALL. ONE LOVE AND SWEET REGGAE FEELINGS
