Boithak Project

About The Project

We aim to reach out to our culturally diverse group of service users who are visually impaired.

The purpose of the Boithak reading group is to engage service users with engaging conversation, building confidence and self-esteem.

The Boithak project brings together many different communities to share their own traditional traits, views, and opinions.

The Boithak Project consists of four different reading groups in four different areas of Leeds which will run once a month.

Reading groups will be based around different language groups each week such as Bengali, Urdu, Punjabi, and Gujarati.

Our reading group is bustling with new information, such as reading and sharing poems, short stories, and jokes including the latest news from newspapers and magazines.
