TRIBEBURGUNDYThe TRIBE Project will service 100 young men aged 18-24, over a period of 3, 6 and 9-month residencies. We seek to offer the opportunity of an alternative life choice to those who would benefit from it at a pivotal point in their life. These young men will get the chance to experience a different environment, learn new skills and take part in our various holistic and sports activities.  All places will offer accommodation and food with no cost to the young person seeking this opportunity. We believe that Tribe is the perfect solution, making a difference to many young men lives whilst reducing the likelihood of street gangs and criminal activities.

Bigga Fish Youth Organisation

Bigga Fish is a national and international grass roots young organisation with 18 years of experience. We curate and develop creative immersive experiences to give young people the opportunity to express, grow and excel.

Our overall vision of the organisation is to work towards a vision that brings the passion and creativity of young people into one integrated solution. We work to address the significant problem that there is a lack of resources and opportunities for inner city youth.

Bigga Fish strives to continuously provide high-end work and high-quality performance opportunities to young creatives through events, workshops, training, and development. We now work across three cities across the UK; London; Manchester and Birmingham with each city’s engagement with young people being led by our well-trained Street Team Captain. Across one year, we engage successfully with over 450 young people and our aim is to nurture our young people through the development of their transferable life-long skills to then take on into their chosen career.

"Bigga Fish is a positive, diverse and unique organisation of young people, for young people. It gives them space, support and freedom to express themselves. I have always been honored to be involved in their events and projects and I am extremely proud of the young organisers and performers." Ms. Dynamite, Mercury Music Prize/Double BRIT Award winner/x3 MOBO Award Winning Artist

 

TRIBEBLACK

After 18 years of experience we have recognizes the need for fresh solutions to the persistent problems that challenge young men in the UK. As a charity who work closely with the youths, we recognise the need for intervention and we have successfully bought 12 acres of beautiful Jamaican land with a river to build a holistic retreat and farm for young men from our inner cities.

Young men are more frequently finding themselves in difficult situations and on every index it seems as though Afro-Caribbean children, youths, and adults are disproportionately reflected. It is common for young men to get involved in street crime, gangs, and other anti social behavior activities. 

Making a difference 

In our experience, some of the most gifted and intelligent young people were in jail or heading down that route, it is how they find their way out/back from proceeding with that path. And the people around them that provide the right opportunities and platforms.

These young people, men, may benefit from a different environment and/or a new community. They need space in a positive environment, doing something positive with positive people.

TRIBE  is a vision for an immediate and definitive response to the plight of young people in particular in this first stage inner city Afro Caribbean boys aged 18-24 years.

Part temple, part farm, and part school will be built on the set of 12 acres of beautiful Jamaican countryside. TRIBE is a sustainable community using solar power, Tesla batteries, and free running water. All food consumed by the young people will be grown by them and the local farmers living on the land with their families.

It'll be a new community providing:

  • A holistic space to nurture the mind, body, spirit.
  • Grounded in a non-religious philosophy that welcomes all spirituality we encourage cultivation of the person.
  • The operation of the space takes its direction from three core cultures.
  • Chinese martial arts and Daoism philosophy.
  • Indian yogic principles.
  • Rastafarian life principles and land cultivation.

The Farm

There is great value in a person understanding the process of growing, it encourages nurturing. A sense of process and understanding of investment. We will operate an active farm producing organic goods to be sold, processed and distributed. No animals will be reared for slaughter.

Each day the young men will carry out duties in the operation of the farm. Alongside this, they will learn insight and skills in the use of all natural plants on the farm, including homeopathic medicine application.

By the time the course is completed the young people will have competency in growing crops and urban gardens.

Sustainability

We want TRIBE to be totally sustainable, making use of affordable technology such as solar panels and house batteries. We expect all of the electrify needs to be met through solar.

Any profits generated by the sale of goods will be directed back into the project and the local community.

 

By the end of the program, we would expect that each young person is in the best physical mental and spiritual space to make the most positive decisions for their lives and society.
