Women Connect First Have a Big Celebration of Women’s Accomplishments
Women Connect First in Cardiff aim to empower and improve the lives of disadvantaged black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) women and their communities to help people realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to Welsh society.
One of the volunteers at Women Connect First, Rehana Nadeem, comments on how volunteering has inspired her to help others.
“I’ve been working as a volunteer for Women Connect First for nearly four years. It’s been a very rewarding and enjoyable project as I’ve gained so many new skills. I assist tutors with their basic skills classes, helping to interpret and translate, teach art classes, cater some of the events Women Connect First hosts and I’ve been given a job opportunity as an allotment coordinator. I’ve become more confident and the organisation has given me the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends and put into practice the skills I’ve got. I’ve also been able to give advice and help other women.”
Women Connect First will celebrate women such as Rehana with a FREE activity- and entertainment packed day at Cardiff City Hall on 15th March between 11-3pm and expecting a record turn-out. Programme includes cultural performances, live music and a cultural fashion show. All attendees to the Lottery Funded event are strongly encouraged to wear in their traditional attires as organisers will do so too.
