Archbishop Kwaku Frimpong-Manson is the founder and director of Reconciliation International. He has been working in the Broadwater Farm (Tottenham) neighbourhood securing better social, health, education and economic well-being for a community embracing over 40 nationalities. His dedication, commitment and service to youth since 1987 has been well-documented and appreciated. Highly respected and admired, his personal conviction is to transform the message of the gospel ‘to reach out to the community in a practical way to show the real strength of our Christian faith’. This, he is achieving on a daily basis.
In 2010, Rev Frimpong-Manson participated in the dedication of the new Warnborough HQ in Canterbury. In April that year, he spoke at the Warnborough graduation held at the Canterbury Cathedral Claggett Auditorium and highlighted the goodwill that Warnborough was achieving in bringing international students together in friendship and harmony. He was instrumental in Dr Brenden D Tempest-Mogg receiving the RECON 2009 Leadership Award by the then UK Minister for Higher Education and Universities, David Lammy, MP.
Warnborough congratulates Archbishop Frimpong-Manson on this prestigious honour, and commend him for the continuing good work he is achieving in Tottenham.
