Religious Sisters of the Assumption Reflect on Promising Educational Initiative in England

Newcastle, England: The Kids Kabin Project

“Let’s Make, Not Break”

Newcastle, England: The Kids Kabin Project

Kids Kabin is a children’s charity based in Newcastle upon Tyne. We use creative arts and practical, hands-on projects to give children living in disadvantaged communities a chance to achieve. We work with schools during the day, developing creative projects to complement the curriculum. Then in the afternoons, evenings and school holidays we run creative and practical workshops on the streets using our innovative mobile workshops, at our main centre in Walker and in community venues across Newcastle upon Tyne. We also run wild camps and bike rides in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
A view of its history

In 1993 three Sisters of the Assumption were sent to Walker, in the east end of Newcastle upon Tyne. After some months of reconnaissance, they chose to settle there.
Even before we had time to unpack, ‘the nuns’ were objects of curiosity, and our small space was invaded by children who were only subdued by the offer of occupation out of limited resources of paper, crayons and games. It was the beginning.
