Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
'I commend the work of the Centre for Kurdish Progress. The centre plays an integral role as an independent, non-profit organisation, focusing on and bringing to light issues affecting Kurdistan and Kurdish people in the UK and abroad.
The Centre for Kurdish Progress brings together Kurds from all regions of Kurdistan, encouraging dialogue and doing great work for the community. Organising events such as the ‘Most Successful Kurds in Britain Awards’, the centre helps recognise and draw greater attention to the achievements and positive contributions of Kurds in Britain.
London is home to many people from around the world and members of the Kurdish community have managed to settle in our city and thrive, contributing greatly to London’s cultural and economic growth and success’
