The project is to bring people of Wolverhampton from different ethnic background together. The project's idea is to meet, learn and also to remove the stigma of being an immigrant which carries the phobia of being a refugee. In immigrants and refugees is a fear of being stereo typed and labelled which leads to isolation. There is a need to get out of the house and meet some new friends have discussions, share a cup of tea and biscuits or just a laugh.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Besides bringing people together, they learn new skills for house wives and also as an occupation. It will remove discrimination, hostility towards each other. The immigrants and refugees also bring new skills with them, which help the community.
Steps to get it done:
The project is an occupational and diversional therapy. It also help some refugees to trust and be able to speak freely. I met an illegal woman who was pregnant and reserved. It was though these meetings where she was able to speak up. She was a victim of trafficking and had to escape. Now being pregnant and have nowhere to go and no access to the GP and Hospital. The story was horrifying. But we managed to help her to go to the refugee centre in Wolverhampton, she got the help she needed, not mentioning the throat cancer they found in time. She is a happy woman with a bouncing baby boy. This is the impact of this project.
