The drive will start on the 12th of December every year (the day of her sad demise) and end on the 12th of February (to mark her birthday). The money raised this year helped to donate food and other essential items to the Homeless Project Scotland and Refugee.

Conference of the Birds 7th November 2021

The Conference of the Birds is a Persian Poem by Sufi poet Fariduddin Attar.

The poetry is about the journey of birds through 7 valleys:
1. Valley of the Quest
2. Valley of Love
3. Valley of Knowledge
4. Valley of Detachment
5. Valley of Unity
6. Valley of Wonderment
7. Valley of Poverty and Annihilation (Anayalation)

We were contacted by The Necessary Space to translate the 7 valleys into music form.
Due to time constraints, we managed 5 out of the 7. Rasheeq composed the 4 music scores.

Hello Youth 7th November 2021

To mark Glasgow hosting COP26, an opportunity came up to develop our children in public speaking and guide them toward becoming active and responsible citizens. With the help of the Speakers Trust and Glasgow Museum, several of our children were trained in the art of public speaking. 4 of the children, Adi, Aryan, Razin, and Sahil, presented on climate-related topics close to their hearts. It was a very proud moment for us all when Adi and Razin were chosen as winners from across the UK.
