The Said Foundation is a British charity founded in 1982 by international businessman and philanthropist, Wafic Said, and his wife Rosemary.
Amal (‘hope’ in Arabic ) is a programme of the Said Foundation making grants in the UK in support of a rich diversity of arts projects and activities, including storytelling, visual arts, theatre, poetry, film, music and dance.
The programme aims to further the following dual interlinked objectives:
To increase understanding of Britain’s Muslim communities among people of other faiths and none.
To foster a stronger sense of belonging in the UK among its Muslim communities.
Projects need to take place in London, Birmingham and/or Bradford or in multiple locations around the UK.
