With this newsletter we would like to inform you about Diwa’s Brick Kiln Education project and our donor and awareness raising activities in The Netherlands.
At the end of last year we came into contact with a new donor, who wanted to sponsor a new project of Stichting Diwa. Together, we have been thinking about how we can make better use of the existing schools. We developed the idea of a skills training development center together with our partner PSTA in Pakistan.
With this training center, we hope to increase the opportunities for children and young adults to find another and a better job. More about this can be read in the article by Shahlla.
Furthermore, this year we evaluated Stichting Diwa. What have we achieved over the years and how can we improve and deepen our work?
The biggest donor activity this year was the Indian / Pakistani cooking workshop led by Grace Timmerman, at a special location in the heart of multicultural Rotterdam. Read more about this in the article by Karin.
Finally, I want to thank you for your interest and support for the work of Stichting Diwa last year.
