Aik Saath means 'Together As One' in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. These words also embody the ethos of our charity. We believe in working together to challenge discrimination, prevent violence and promote equality. Our mission is to work with people from all communities, faiths and backgrounds to promote and encourage peace, human rights and community cohesion through peer-led education. Why the community needs us
Aik Saath's young volunteers are trained in a wide range of skills and expertise in relevant fields, such as conflict resolution and theatre in education techniques. In turn, these young people train their peers in local schools and youth centres in order to ensure that they learn the skills necessary to help encourage a more cohesive community. Aik Saath is currently training over 2,000 young people every year to make our communities safer, more cohesive and peaceful places.Our impact on the community
Our training helps support young people to make a change in their lives: 'I've improved my behaviour in these last ten weeks. I've stopped fighting and arguing back as much. I realise now I can control myself' Tommy, 11. Teachers, youth workers, representatives from the Local Authority and Thames Valley Police vouch for the difference our training is making in schools, young people's centres and the wider community.
