A pair of single mums who launched their own youth club charity to help keep youngsters off the streets celebrated the talents of local children with a family fun day.
Mother-of-three Fatuma Maulule, 40, of Crossness Road, Barking, launched Triangoals through the Barking Enterprise Centre in August 2013, together with neighbour Jeorgina Soares.
Boasting a range of weekly clubs, the group held a day of ballet, karate, fun and games on Saturday, December 13, showcasing their full range of activities.
“We just saw there was nothing to do for youngsters round here and wanted to do something about it,” she said.
“Buildings were being damaged and parents didn’t seem to be bothered their children were out on the streets so late at night.

Fatuma is also balancing family commitments with studying health and social care. Visit facebook.com/triangoals.achievers
