About The Like Me CIC
Who Are We?
The Like Me CIC is a registered not-for-profit personal development Community Interest Company founded by Jasmine Mbye, (yep, that’s the woman in the picture), which aims to empower and encourage vulnerable women and girls in Luton with the knowledge and tools to develop the confidence and courage to pursue their passions and go for their dreams. Encouraging every female to celebrate her womanhood or girlhood in a sisterhood.
We seek to empower Luton women and girls so they avoid exploitation, extremism, abuse/violence and Common Mental Health Disorders (CMD) and low self-esteem through providing a platform and partnering with other specialist support agencies.
Jasmine was born in Luton but lived most of her life in London, returning to Luton in 2015. Jasmine has always had a heart for working with women. However, after having her first child in 2017, Jasmine was also inspired to work with girls as she had a beautiful baby girl. Jasmine had overcome many struggles in her life but she encountered new challenges faced by females, which her previous experience had helped her handle better, and she was determined to make a positive difference to females right here in Luton Town. Jasmine shares her story to empower and encourage others. To find out more about Jasmine check out her website by clicking here.
The Like Me CIC team consists of women representative of the Luton community with a passion to make a difference. Many of these women are volunteers who are pursuing their passions.
Jasmine and the team have a vision to see every woman and girl living in Luton confident and courageous, celebrating herself and her female sisters as they pursue their passions and achieve their dreams. If this appeals to you, get connected with us.
