- Sawiyan means ‘together’ in Arabic.
- At Sawiyan we believe we sometimes need to step outside the comfort of our own cultures in order to build bridges and friendships with someone from another background.
- Welcome, creativity and bridge building are Sawiyan’s core values. By appreciating the riches each participant brings with them, our projects build friendships and encourage us to work together.
- Our values are based on a Christian ethos and we offer a warm welcome to everybody.
