Bilateral Exchange Visit

The United Multicultural Centre was happy to receive visitors from Kotli, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan, as part of the Bilateral Exchange Visit arranged by the British Council in connection with Voluntary Action Rotherham (VAR) and Rotherham Ethnic Minority Alliance (REMA).

We shared common interests with the young people, discussing strategies to get young people involved in volunteering, both in the United Kingdom and in Pakistan.

They were a lively group, very nice and asked a lot of questions. The UMCC will be happy to receive further visitors as part of the Bilateral Exchange Visit and are very pleased with the outcome.

Amjad Aftab leader of the Active Citizens group left a comment in our comments book on behalf of all the group:

"It was a really good opportunity to learn about the volunteering in the UK. Mrs Qureshi gave us a comprehensive presentation and giving a light for obtaining change in the lives of marginalised and deprived communities.

We really appreciate the lunch and working of her organisation. She is ideal for the upcoming generation."
