At Maslaha we believe that education has to be socially and culturally relevant and account for different lived experiences and learning styles if all young people are to have equal opportunity to flourish. Our initiatives over the past ten years have ranged from supporting pupils at risk of exclusion, to gender equality programmes and developing creative curriculum. We are currently working on a whole school change project that explores the potential for schools to engage more with their local communities in collaboration with the Colombian NGO Escuela Nueva.
We also deliver one-off and bespoke workshops across a range of areas including social entrepreneurship, civic engagement, skills-identification, aspiration raising and challenging stereotypes, creative problem solving, positive notions of gender identity and healthy relationships, the relationship between religion and feminism, issues of violence against women and using creative media to explore identity. We are always happy to discuss workshop ideas and proposals.
