WINNER OF THE QUEEN'S AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE IN 2019

Descendants is a history and arts-focused organisation aimed at children and young people aged 4-16, primarily but not exclusively of African and Caribbean descent. Our main focus is on African and Caribbean culture; we explore history, we experiment with art, craft, music, drama and dance.

Our Motto

UMOJA MEANS UNITY -“Education is our right. We strive for excellence. We are talented, ambitious and gifted young people. We aim for the sky."

Every year, Descendants publicly celebrate the unquestionable achievements and sheer potential of young people nominated by schools in the Ealing Borough.

Our future leaders, doctors, scientists, record breaking athletes, inspiring poets, painters, teachers, pilots and activists just to name a few!
