Breaking down barriers.
Building up communities.
As an organisation we work to educate, inform and unite communities. Whether in response to individual concerns, local issues or national crises, we look to build up and empower individuals and those we work with through unique experiences.
The Baobab tree, and its significance, is embraced by Agida: The Baobab tree is a symbol of community. It is told, in stories past and present, that the Griots would hold court, meeting under its majestic branches in the belief that the tree’s spirits would guide decision-making. Today, the Baobab is still used as a place for community meetings or even a ‘classroom’. At Agida, we may meet in community centres, school halls and lecture theatres, and more recently via Zoom, but in our hearts, we are under the Baobab tree!
2020 has been a difficult year for many of us, for so many reasons. With all the continuing turmoil, negativity and challenges around us, like many others, we have sought to find the positives and make a difference where we can.
We are proud to announce that we have successfully applied for charitable funding which will allow us to reach people like never before, in a variety of ways. We have expanded our team, bringing in more experience and talent to help deliver multiple projects which we hope will make a difference, beginning in our local community of Warrington. This is just the start.
Over the next few days and weeks, we will be sharing with you some of the work we are doing, here at Agida, and telling you all about our charitable funding, including the projects we will be delivering as we roll into the New Year. We can’t wait to share this with you all, so keep your eyes peeled for future updates!
From the team at Agida
Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, has helped us to work within our local community to build connections. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.
We place great value on tailoring sessions to the needs at hand, leading to incredibly varied experiences, such as:
It is not uncommon for sessions to utilise multiple elements at one time! If like us, you believe this to be encouraging, positive work, then please explore the rest of our website to find out more.
At Agida, we place emphasis not only on our main objectives, but on how we accomplish them; we believe in doing so through fully inclusive, fun, and educational programmes, working across cultural, religious, ethnic and socio-economic divides. Following on from that, our organisation in itself is a diverse and growing group of experienced individuals, and we are always looking to work with more individuals and groups who share our aims.
As highlighted above, we provide many different types of programmes in schools, community centres and companies. Each workshop is tailored to those involved, in order to best explore, reflect upon and understand topical issues, whilst providing an all-round enjoyable experience.
Whether working with you to deliver traditional training/classes, or providing a unique workshop experience, we pride ourselves on facilitating growth and learning experiences.
