This week marks our third week of the iMatterToo programme run by SHEWISE. ’iMatterToo” aims to provide young South Asian girls with the tools to navigate the significant challenges affecting their well-being and personal growth today. We believe that “iMatterToo” serves as the crucial component that has been missing in the current education curriculum.
Our innovative approach to learning empowers young South Asian girls to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their maximum potential. Central to the program is the enhancement of their comprehension of cultural heritage and the potential generational trauma that may persist within their families, having migrated for three generations.
The program, delivered across 12 weeks covering a range of topics, will employ a diverse range of methods, including storytelling, role play, art therapy, one-to-one peersupport, group discussions, activities, videos, and worksheets. Through these approaches, participants will be empowered to collaboratively address specific challenges they encounter.
These programmes are now being run in Secondary Schools and Colleges across Newham. Want to find out more? Visit our Youth Support tab on our site for the iMatterToo Programme Flyer and Brochure.
