L.O.T AND LEGACY
HAGGERSTON COMMUNITY CENTRE
AND HILTON HOTEL GREENWICH
LOT’s Main Objectives
- To raise leaders
- To host yearly events and network with young entrepreneurs
- To mentor and coach the 13-30 years
- To train and cultivate great potential in the 13-30 years
- To help build dreams, empower and inspire the younger generation
"Leaders are coaches with a passion for developing people, not players"
"They get satisfaction from achieving objects through others. Leaders inspire people through a shared vision and create an environment where people feel valued and fulfilled."
Today the conception of what it means to be a leader, has been distorted and deflated to say the very least. Today many see leadership as power or an abuse of it nonetheless. Many of us want to rule. Many of us want to wave our hands around and affect change. Many of us do not want to put in the work nor struggle to achieve the impossible. Many think it is the birthright but with a flawed conception of their identity.
SATURDAY 28TH APRIL
DOUBLE TREE HILTON, GREENWICH
ALL WHITE ATTIRE
STANDS FOR WOUNDED WOMEN OBTAIN POWER. THIS IS EVENT HAPPENS EVERY APRIL. THIS IS AN EVENT FOR THE YOUNG WOMEN IN OUR SOCIETY.
- To raise women and girls from aged 13-25 to become leaders
- To host yearly events to share women's stories and network young entrepreneurs
A community where one can feel safe, empowered and grow! A platform whereby you can voice your opinions and be heard! A nation that can be touched by your story and grow! A place that through your brokenness, we find strength! Women must locate their purpose! We must change the world's definition of us as being unfit and make a difference! We will educate our young and show them that there is hope and that we too can innovate a new social change! We must change what the world says of us and how statistics show that, “we account for only 5% of the world's CEO's of Fortune 500 and 1000.” It is time we come out of obscurity and take our place as leaders! We can do anything we set our minds to do! Fear of never being good enough or inadequate is no longer our lord! We will use our pain and scars to mould a united world!

SATURDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER
BOW ARTS CENTRE
WHO ARE WE:
We are a foundation that wants to provide hope and self-confidence to young women and give them self-confidence through the gift of beauty empowerment.
The Internet is full of so much propaganda. We want to have a platform worldwide to reach out to young girls across the globe to help inspire and empower them.
We believe when you educate a girl the world shines brighter. We train girls to understand their identity is individually customized for them. They do not have to be judged or compete with each other. They just have to be themselves.
Why the name FIRE? Because fire is one of the most powerful elements; If you are in its way, it can burn you. It is so bright. It has so much passion. It has so much energy. Many fear it. Many run from it.
Young girls you are powerful! You have so much in you that the world wants to see. You will create a legacy and change the world, as we know it but you must learn to love and believe in yourself; which is what we aim to do here at Sapphire. We would work on your external, internal, skills and talents.
“When girls do not find themselves or their aspirations reflected in the books they read, or when their image is sexualized, objectified or distorted, they learn a powerful lesson about how they are devalued in society. I truly feel we should consider telling different stories to our children and not sub-estimate the power of the words coming out of our mouths as parents”
We want to change the literature. We want to influence the media. We want to tell young women that they are beautiful. We want to teach and educate them on their worth, values and how to achieve their dreams in despite of the glass ceiling.
Saturday 1st September is a day we celebrate women. To celebrate all you have achieved. We will have beauty stalls, hair, makeup, clothing, health and fitness, craft and jewellery. Women who have published books, magazines and artwork. The day would consist of music, poetry and women speakers. There would be food and drink. A day we unite women through their talents and remind them that they are beautiful inside and out.
THE BOAT PARTY
Friday 23rd November
“To unite our world through music”
Rave comes from the Greek word ‘Halal’ which means to shine, rave and to worship even to the point of appearing foolish.
SCG has constructed Rave to be a night where we all come together in unity and have fun. We would have our gospel grime, Afro beats, house, pop, country; you name it, we have it. A night where we celebrate the dawning of a year and give God thanks for how far we have come and for the dreams we plan to achieve next year. It is a night we let our hair down and enjoy the beauty of true music. There will be entertainment, food and drinks.

MASTERPIECE FILM PREMIERE
FRIDAY 30TH MARCH 2018
STRATFORD EAST PICTURE HOUSE CINEMA
DOORS OPEN 8PM
This is a film like no other.
Or shall I say the most creative invention that mankind has never heard nor imagined of. This is a composition of it all. This story will take your mind places that it has never been before. From the highs to the lows; from the silenced to the powerful; from the oppressed to the depressed; from the deluded, secluded and concluded; this is a collection our hopes. This is a collection of our dreams. This is a collection of our deepest darkest secrets. This is a maze game from the mind of insanity to divinity. This is the sound of perfections deceptions. This is the soul cries of delusions confusions. These are the words that we have been too afraid to say out loud. These are the memoirs of our generation. These are the broken promises of our ancestors. These are the hollow winds in the wilderness. This is the beauty after the pain. This is the solidity after the rain. These are the bruises after the war. This is the composition that Beethoven passed down to Einstein. This is the creation of all formations. This is the mind of a dreamer.
This is a mind of a visionary.
This is the mind of the free.
This is the mind of me.
Are you still there?
Emerald aged 16 gave birth to two twins one black and one white. They were the first ground breaking story that science could not quite understand. They were the talk of the town. They were a mystery of all mystery. They shook the foundations of theories and theologies. So both given up at birth and separated to live in two different worlds.
This is the story of JC and Sapphire.
MASTERPIECE THE TOUR
Masterpiece is screening at over 25 universities this year! To be part of the tour, contact us now!
SUNDAY 11TH - KENT UNIVERSITY
SUNDAY 18TH - ESSEX UNIVERSITY
SUNDAY 25TH - WARWICK UNIVERSITY
I look around my world and my heart is broken because they do not see. They do not see what has been embedded within. They do not see the craftsmanship of the universe. They do not know what lies within their hands. They have not understood to why they are here and to what purpose they will be. I know where they stand. I know the sound of darkness all too well. I know the pain of insecurity. I know what it feels like to inhabit the praise of a fallen identity. I lived in darkness for the longest part of my existence but this year I have decided that no matter what and no matter what it will cost me, my generation will see the light. My generation has no choice but to shine. My world has no choice but to arise from insecurity. My heart is on fire! My mind is dismay because I am not doing enough. They are dying all around us and but yet we stand and wait.
We wait and wait when he is saying the time is now! I do not want the big things, all I want is the hearts of my people.
There is no perfect day! There is no perfect season! There is no perfect time! He is saying he is coming and he wants his children to shine.
I am looking for those who have a burden to change our generation. I am looking for those who will go face to face with darkness and pull souls into the light. I am looking for those who will serve before themselves. I need a team. I need people that would run into the fiery bush and stand even when it seems hopeless. I am looking for the hopeful. I am looking for the dreamers and visionaries.
