Over The Rainbow

Story. Grace Kamsika.

It brought communities and a range of ages together by inviting people from all over Sheffield and Rotherham. It was also used as an opportunity to let young people express themselves and improve their confidence.

Established by a group of young people and brought together by the YCA, it began with a play which promoted ‘making your dreams become reality’ by not getting involved in crime and its consequences. Afterwards, they hosted ‘Yemeni’s Got Talent’, which involved acts between the ages of 8 and 16 singing, dancing, rapping and reading poetry in front of an impressive audience of over 300, which resulted in an energetic and exciting atmosphere. Throughout the events, the dreams and aspirations of the people there were encouraged and supported.

After the event, where activities like bouncy castles and inflatable slides were provided for the children, Sami Musaid said:

“Overall, it went really well. It gave the kids a really good time and gave them incentive.”

Due to the success and popularity of the event, Khalid Salih, a member of the YCA. confirmed future events are due. Overall, it gave people an encouraging and exciting way to celebrate Eid altogether as a Community.
