"This book is a panacea for the intractable dysfunction in the African Caribbean community. I know this will not be the only solution but it definitely fills a vacuum."

"We came to last Mcf retreat in 2019,
We had three children then and one of the way. We were not in a good place when we came and so we separated soon after the retreat, but I remembered hearing the testimony which the Pastor shared about how he and his wife separated but they came back together. They are Pastors (they weren't when they separated) but if they can come back together, then we can too, and that is what happened. We are now happily bringing up our four children together."
Hello Aunty I was just like to share my testimony of the impact from attending the married couples retreat. We were invited by Sis Paula whom we have known for Many years. I looked forward to it because it would be our first time attending this type of event. We didn't know what to expect. The event turned out to be exactly what we needed in that season. We were going through a very tough stage in our marriage and we did not know what to do. We were at the stage of separation. Being at the event with other married couples hearing their testimonies gave us so much hope. We were moved by how they overcame, they shared with complete transparency, they taught us the importance of prayer and many other principles that helped their marriage. We also shared, we cried and you all comforted us with your words of wisdom. Thanks be to God years on and we are now in a better place. We are happily married, using the wisdom from you all, working on our marriage daily with Christ at the center We are truly greatful for this event. God bless you and your Husband and your ministry it has truly bless our lives. I look forward to the next one ❤
My husband said that his event was amazing. He loved being with other married men and hearing how they dealt with things. He said he felt supported, he felt safe that he could really open up and share this for him was an amazing and new experience.

Training and Development
Margaret really opened our eyes to the mindsets of today's youth on the streets.
Beyond telling my story, how can I help you?
We believe that the change the society needs starts with the individual, you. Margaret Bankole delivers training ranging from half-day awareness raising to two and three-day professional development retreats.
We offer practical skills courses for parents who are worried or have children that have been affected by gun and knife violence.
The professionals we train may encounter gang-affected young people in their day-to-day lives, so they are more able and confident to offer support to parents and young people.
We are also working in prisons to offer offenders confidence to help change behaviour and thinking towards criminal activity.
