We are BEST WAY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, a volunteer organisation that was formed in 2012 by individuals of African descent and Scottish people. We strive to ensure that our community fully integrates into the wider community. Most of our community live in Motherwell in North Lanarkshire and originally arrived as refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo via UN refugee camps in Zambia in 2007. In addition, several people from other African countries including: Nigeria, Malawi, Somalia, Eritrea, Rwanda, Sudan and Tanzania have relocated from Glasgow and from other parts of the United Kingdom. BWCD's main priority is to tackle family conflict through conflict resolution and community engagement. We use the Freire-Boal approach to community activities as a tool for education and community action.
Our members are keen to become fully integrated into the wider community and to promote social cohesion and racial harmony through mutual understanding - by building relationships and working together.
BWCD understands that it is a very difficult time for us all, and it is best to help each other, without discrimination. That is the reason we are working hard to give support to BEM groups and the wider community who are struggling to meet their needs at this difficult time. We are here and ready to volunteer so as to help everyone in our community.
