Confidence & Well-being
Znaniye Foundation is incredibly proud to have received the National Lottery's Awards For All, Community Fund in 2019. Through this we created weekly sessions on weekends to encourage young people to develop soft skills and transferable skills that will help support them with various areas of life in and outside of school, such as leadership, communication, self-motivation, teamwork and more. Young people have the opportunity to fulfil their potential by exploring new avenues or working to develop areas they already enjoy. The project fundamentally puts young people in the lead.
Overall the project's aim will be to help people to improve their confidence and wellbeing as well as reduce social isolation within the community. We want to aid people in self-progression. This will be a safe fun place for young people to become involved in activities that welcome everyone and are not readily available to all levels of society. We are excited to promote diversity and inclusiveness through this program and welcome people from all backgrounds to join in new experiences.
-Public Speaking + Performing
Throughout the last Academic Year, we have run various activities supporting this project. For example the establishment of Singing and Music Lessons, which led to us entering both a 4 Year Old Student and a 24 year old Musician in a global Music Competition, where our Pianist one 1st Place in his category!

Additionally, the launch of our weekend Art clubs, drew great success, building a waiting list and eventually holding a Exhibition for all parents to see! Take a look at some of the students work over the year.
Once again, we decided to continue these projects during the Covid-19 Lockdown, and thus ran online regular training for teachers in E-Safety, and How to Effectively Run Online Classes. From techniques to keeping students engaged, how to keep children stimulated remotely and more, all taught but teachers with expertise in the area.
