RECLAIM PROJECT – INSPIRATION AND ASPIRATION

A charity called Reclaim has been running an ambitious mentoring scheme

which is giving confidence and inspiration to Wythenshawe girls.

The charity, set up in 2007, launched its first scheme in Wythenshawe last October and since then around 25 local girls have been taking part in a  project where they are paired with a volunteer mentor from their area and  take part in a variety of activities.

In a recent interview with WFM, Reclaim Project Coordinator Emma Horridge told us how the girls were enjoying a range of confidence-boosting and fun activities including a taking part in community work, a fashion show and a dance workshop and how they had learned to write their own poems and songs and had even written a manifesto affirming their values. You can see their eight-point manifesto here.
