EHF would like to “digitally empower” the local BME communities living in the city of Manchester particularly in view of COVID-19 pandemic social restrictions and locked down situations.
The Key beneficiaries-learners will be Arabic, Kurdish speaking communities who are newly settled in the local area. Additionally, our target community are the south Asian Pakistani and Bangladeshi community living in the wards of M14 postcode and surrounding wards. We will prepare them for “digital adaptation” and hence improving skills in exploring online/digital opportunities. Individual and group based learning activity is held every Thursday at Trinity Resource Centre (Traininhg Hall) following Govt. guidelines of social distancing and PPE.
