“PROMOTE INTER COMMUNAL EVENTS AND STRENGTHEN BONDS BETWEEN DIFFERENT CULTURES BOTH AFRICAN AND EURO-ASIATIC”

The biggest issue in communities has always been racial and religious differences coupled with cultural values. The addition of religion into their cultures

has refined the cultural statutes over time to create the current versions we see now, so to enable a smooth process all these will have to be taken into account when setting up communal gatherings.

Westernization is often seen as a debasing/eroding of the original cultural and traditional values by many ethnic groups thus the restraint of many. The easiest way to do this is to present a level plane of familiarity to allow all cultures to interact without halting the much needed interaction among the communities.

The project aims to deliver workshops and events to allow different groups learn about each others cultural values and historical roots with no harm to their own beliefs.

To avoid such things happening, the aim is to create an organisation where we still work at the grass root level to enable all cases to be handled on an individual basis.

In doing so this doesn’t restrict us to a particular community but have it such that we can grow to help set up multiple points in other communities just like the McDonalds

franchise scheme; All W.A.D. charters following exactly the same constitution, rules and regulations and modus-operanda regardless of where the charter point is, in order to provide exactly the same type of service in that community

OUR VOLUNTARY PROGRAMS

The programme will help you build the confidence to: Recognise when someone may be experiencing problems. Actively listen to people with problems.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

WAD volunteers are a crucial part of our organisation. Working as one team, we combine skills and experience to create positive change for everyone not just in Tameside but everywhere in the UK

WE HELP REDUCE ISOLATION

Our members are often isolated and hard to reach people in the community, who may be new to the country. We aim to help by breaking down barriers to integration.
