Proud member of the Wolverhampton community and all round hard worker, Alvine Dongmo-Noumey, was announced as the winner of the best portrait in this year's National Federation of ALMO's (NFA) portrait exhibition.
The exhibition, "Ordinary People Extraordinary Lives", celebrates the lives of tenants and residents- each person making a really positive and meaningful contribution within their neighbourhoods and communities, and each having an extraordinary story to share.
Alvine has worked a lot with our tenant engagement team and is a woman on a mission to bring people of all nationalities together and create a welcoming community for everyone.
Alvine, who lives in Ashmore Park, is a full-time volunteer and chairperson of the Migrant Empowerment Group in Wolverhampton, helping refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants in the city to feel welcomed into the community.
Alvine organises regular activities through the Migrant Empowerment Group, including a Christmas party with donated gifts for asylum seeker families and charity gift collections to give to families who struggle to afford a proper Christmas meal, an end of year party with the local residents’ association and regular sewing, knitting and chat events.
Her events attract hundreds of residents, of all nationalities.
