As a detached youth worker, she spends much of her time building relationships with young people on the streets, in parks, and other public spaces where they gather.

Khalil Abdi


Khalil founded BHYC in 2012, after he noticed a lot of young people hanging around on the street with nothing to do. This can make young people a target for gangs, and a lack of exercise can lead to various health conditions, such as obesity and depression. Since then, BHYC has grown into a highly successful organisation and continues to go from strength to strength.
