The writing in this anthology is by members of PAMOJA Women Together – a group of refugee, asylum-seeking and irregular migrant women from a wide range of countries, faiths and backgrounds now living in Nottingham. PAMOJA means ‘together’ and ‘inclusive’ in Swahili. The World Is For Everyone is not a traditional anthology of writing. It represents the voices, creative contributions and insights – written and spoken – of the PAMOJA Women Together Group, as these emerged through a series of cultural projects organized as part of the Changing Wor(l)ds Project at Nottingham Trent University. This enchanting book is unique and very personal. As well as poems, stories and photographs, there are recipes handed down from mother to daughter, carried right across the world and recreated in the UK as an evocation of their birthplaces. Listen and you will find these women have vital things to say. They speak of courage needed, pain overcome, puzzlement, patience, struggle, rejection and the ultimate triumph of the spirit.
