Assalaamu Alaykum Sisters!
At MWASA, we are blessed to have participants and staff from all over the globe, Alhamdulillah. They enrich us by sharing many perspectives on their lives and culture and so much more! To celebrate this diversity, join us on 21st March 2018 for Harmony Day!
MWASA held its Annual General Meeting 2017 on 12th February 2018 where members attended and voted for the 2018 committee.
Sr Dora Abbas, Chairperson, MWASA, extends her appreciation to all partners, friends, staff and volunteers of MWASA for their unwavering support and partnership and looks forward to their continued collaboration and support in the years ahead.
Sr Dora also thanks colleagues, Sr June Hussain, Community Development Officer, for organising a successful AGM and Sr Shaista Kalaniya, Project Manager, for her achievements in MWASA’s Youth program. Last year, our youth group collaborated with the Dulwich Centre on a project that focused on survival strategies by young people. They produced a video on how as Muslims, they try not to take people’s hate into their hearts.
Overall, the project highlighted knowledge and philosophies of students from primary schools, high schools and universities on tackling problems, overcoming bullying, surviving the ocean of depression, and much more.
For the past decade, the MWASA has been the main Muslim organisation providing cross-cultural training about Islam and Muslims to the South Australian public.
We provide talks to schools, universities, and various community and government organisations across SA. We also participate in community programs and respond to information requests from the public. Our staff and volunteers go out to present talks and participate in community events every week.
The aim is to strengthen the relationship and mutual understanding between Muslims and the general community. This effort has become more important with the rise in tensions and misunderstandings about Islam.
We need your support so that we can continue to provide and improve this service. These are some of our expenses:
- Reimbursements to trainers and volunteers
- Purchase of resource materials, such as posters, brochures and books
- Rental and set up of training venues and stalls at community events
- Transport, refreshments, stationery and printing
