What MAF does
Hall Green Mums and Families (MAF) is facilitated by a group of mums
with children at Hall Green Schools who believe that even though we all come from diverse cultures and backgrounds we should
join together in activities so we can find out what we all have in common. MAF is an initiative to help
us all ‘learn about each other, from each other’, and have fun whilst we’re doing it!
MAF is an organisation that helps develop good
links between the diverse cultural, religious and racial groups that make up the local Hall Green Community. The emphasis
is on arranging activities at which mums and families can have fun learning about each other, from each
other. Gaining knowledge in this way, families can learn to understand and respect people who are different
from themselves, and help their children to understand the benefits to be gained from being able to respect and relate
to people from other cultures, races and religions.

A Message to Parents
You might sometimes ask yourselves what you really
want for your children. Success and happiness are probably high up on the list. In today's multicultural Britain
- and no more so than in Birmingham- part of growing up and succeeding undoubtedly involves the abilty to understand people
from different backgrounds. Having the knowledge and confidence to respect those from different races, religions and
cultures from our own is a vital life skill.
One of the best ways to help our children become aware of these things is to make sure that we ourselves understand
other people, and respect the differences between each other. MAF is an initiative to help us all learn
about each other, from each other – and have fun whilst we’re doing it.
