The Kiyan Prince Foundation was formed following the tragic death of Mark Prince's son Kiyan in May 2006. He played for the under 16 QPR team and was destined to be a professional footballer and was tipped to play for England. He was stabbed outside his school gates as he tried to prevent another youth picking on this friend.
Mark was inspired by the belief that by educating young people about the devastating consequences of knife crime, the lives of many potential victims would be saved and in March 2008 was presented with the Children’s Champion Award by Gordon Brown.
He has been working with children and young people to provide support, opportunities and knowledge, giving them a sense of belonging, self-worth and purpose that can be found outside of gang culture and offending behaviour.
The Kiyan Prince Foundation will be supporting raising awareness about autism, due to related links to social issues with many young people that he has met on his journey.
We look forward to Mark Prince coming down to A2ndVoice workshop in due course.
