Language project gets £42k funding

A LEITH community project has been awarded almost £43,000 to improve the language skills of ethnic minority women.

Port of Leith Housing Association secured funds for its Saheliya scheme from the Scottish Government. The organisation will receive £42,482 over the next two years to provide English lessons for more than 90 women living in north Edinburgh.

Mary Hastie, business development co-ordinator at Saheliya, said: “This funding is vitally important and allows us to reach out to women and young girls who are disengaged and feel disempowered.”
