Registration notes: The colours of the Karibu tartan are those of Karibu Scotland. Karibu (meaning 'welcome' in Swahili) was set-up in 2004 by Henriette Koubakouenda in her living room in Glasgow. She saw a need to provide support to the refugees and asylum seekers arriving in Glasgow at that time as part of the Asylum Seeker's Dispersal Programme. Karibu Scotland now has over 100 members, representing 12 African countries, with premises in the Pearce Institute in the Govan area of Glasgow. The organisation runs multiple projects throughout the city to promote the confidence, skills and integration of African women.
