Building bridges through cooking – Sursum, Slovenia

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Food is a great way to build bridges between communities and something our partner in Slovenia, Sursum, have been heavily involved in through hosting cooking lessons!

Our FATIMA partners hold many cooking lessons and really, why not? Sharing food is a delicious, collaborative and creative way to bond with the local community.

Sursum, our partner in Ljubljana, has held a series of cooking sessions, including making pizza – the Slovenian way! Deciphering a Slovenian-language recipe was a bit of a challenge for our migrant women, but with a little support and encouragement, they were able to follow the recipe and produce some truly mouth-watering food!

The cooking lessons have proved to be a great way to build the confidence of the women and encourage them to open up and bond all while having a good time!
