Women Arise is a project that runs weekly sessions supporting women from immigrant backgrounds with some ESOL added in. Until lockdown began, we were running a course called Flourish. After that it was impossible to continue as we were not ready to go online.
We thank God that we have been able to resume sessions in October looking at issues of health and how we survive or thrive in hard times. To coincide with our new theme Staying Connected, we have taught the women to go on Zoom and have been able to live stream our sessions from Leeds Refugee Forum with some at home and some in the building. We also thank God for the provision of food parcels via Hamara that we have been able to deliver to the women.
That those with Beginner English will feel connected, it has been especially hard for them
