Who Am I? Humari Pehchan
SAMEE has developed a cultural story writing and performance activity for the ethnic minority community. Humari Pehchan (Who Am I?) is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and will be led by BME primary and secondary school pupils, parents, grandparents, educators and creative community groups.
The project focuses on creating a multi-lingual storybook in Urdu, Gaelic and English centred on identity and a sense of belonging. The book will be authored and illustrated by the young people, with input from parents and grandparents, and translated into a performance.
The National Lottery Community Fund, Scotland Director, Neil Ritch: said: “In these uncertain times our priority is to ensure that National Lottery money continues to flow to charities, voluntary sector organisations and grassroots groups. I would like to congratulate SAMEE on their award, theirs is an important project which showcases the vital work that’s being done in communities across the country.”
SAMEE is thrilled to receive this vital funding from The National Lottery Community Fund for the Humari Pehchan (Who Am I?) project. We look forward to working with pupils, parents, grandparents, educators and community groups on this inter-generational project. The project strengthens the value and benefits of members of a community from different age groups sharing their stories and life experiences.
