GAMPA was awarded The Best Educational Project for the "I AM ME " project. A unique project targeting all local schools with a positive message of self-love, confidence and self-esteem.

All school choirs were taught the ‘I Am Me’ anthem which culminated in over 500 pupils recording the song and producing a video. A project focused on positive reinforcement and helping young people reach their fullest potential! The award was presented by the Minister for Housing, Youth and Sport, The Hon Steven Linares MP.
