Aawaz women of Achievement Project is now completed. The End of Project outcomes were celebrated at the glittering annual event that took place on 5th March 2015.

This unique project depicts the life experiences and achievements of south Asian women who arrived in East Lancashire during the period 1965 to 1985.

The Project was funded through Heritage Lottery and delivered in partnership with Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School. The idea for the project actually came through delivering the ‘Young Aawaz’ project which started the dialogue with young people as to “what aspect of their heritage they would wish to preserve for their future?” This question started the ball rolling for debate and discussions that engaged young people of all nationalities. Even those young people who would admit that they find history and heritage quite boring. However when discussing the importance of heritage and being given the opportunity to take ownership of a project they became really enthused and helped to shape this work.

The project has created a Resource Pack – Learning materials that can be used by every school. The downloadable resources below together with the DVDs can be used by schools, libraries and various community organisations. The Resource pack materials are available to all schools right across the country.

The Women of Achievement Project identified a huge gap that existed in the current Citizenship Provision of the National Curriculum. The project wanted to educate young people and to give them some appreciation of their heritage and the diverse community that now exists in East Lancashire. The project meets the KS3 National Curriculum objective requirements for all children of secondary school age.
