Scholar Family Fun Day: A Joyful Picnic Experience

The project’s aim was to bring together displaced scholars from diverse backgrounds and their children for a one-day picnic. The picnic provided a fun, relaxed, and supportive environment for these individuals and families to come together and connect. 

The project fostered a sense of community among displaced scholars, alleviating feelings of isolation in unfamiliar environments. By uniting them with their families, they were able to exchange experiences and provide mutual encouragement. This significantly enhanced their mental well-being. The beneficiaries encompassed displaced scholars from various backgrounds, along with their children. Approximately 50 participants attended the event, and we were honored to have the Local MP join us.
