The "Dosti" Project
Dosti means "friendship" in Persian and many South Asian languages. The purpose of the Dosti project is to combat racism, bullying, homophobia and discrimination in high schools, colleges, universities, and the community throughout Greater Vancouver.
Sher Vancouver hopes to reduce hatred and build more friendships through increased acceptance and cross cultural understanding.
Outreach workshops were designed in part by Community Developer Romi Chandra Herbert with feedback from the BC Teachers' Federation and Vancouver School Board. Training was provided by Qmunity.
The Dosti project is funded by the Corsa Foundation, Pride Education Network, BC Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General (Victim Services and Crime Prevention Division), the BC Teachers' Federation, TD Bank, and the Vancouver Pride Society (Legacy Fund).
