We have been regularly running Parents' forums for AFRIL since 2017.
We recently completed our Discovering Stories project with AFRIL funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
In this project we worked with parents from AFRIL's Rainbow Club Supplementary School to explore the parents’ histories, cultures, and traditions that they will be passing down to their children. The title of the book comes from a Yoruba proverb shared by one of the parents, a reminder to never forget our heritage and families’ values.
Discovering Stories was a series of online creative workshops and 1 to 1 interviews that ended in producing this book to give out to all AFRIL families and the wider community.
In each workshop we did different arts & crafts activities. We had fun and learnt new skills whilst reflecting on our cultures and how important they are for us and our children.
