2013 – Award from the International Centre of Muslim and non-Muslim Understanding

 

In December 2013 the University of South Australia presented MWASA with an award for ‘Muslim and non-Muslim understanding’, to honour our effort in the building
of bridges of understanding over the last 20 years.

Through our Cross Cultural training and various other programs we reach over 400 individuals yearly in educating them about Islam and Muslims. Through these
programs we encourage people to think beyond religious and cultural differences and focus on the character of people.

MWASA would like to acknowledge and thank the University of South Australia for initiating this award that helps foster understanding and respect among people of
different backgrounds and religions.
