    Making it home

    We crossed the globe in search of the meaning of home. From Scotland to Albania and Trinidad to Iran, we brought together women from diverse cultural backgrounds to join a small group of Asian men to share their experiences.

    We will be posting some of their words in the form of digital postcards, one each day for the next six days on#makingithome. Please help us to promote by sharing each day in your social networks.

    Share on facebook, twitter and instagram.

    The writing was facilitated by Shamshad Khan, poet and resilience coach, and digital postcards produced by Ricardo @sagittamedia .

    This initiative is funded and a part of the Manchester City Council Radequal Campaign which encourages connecting and strengthening of communities to empower and build resilience. Sessions were delivered at the Greater Manchester Pakistani Association.  Special thanks to Nadia Siddiqui of Women’s Voices.
