What is Community Development Program (CDP)?


CDP is a series of workshops to help volunteers, activists, and leaders in the Muslim community develop themselves spiritually and organizationally to be effective agents of social change.


Objectives of CDP are to:

  1. Enhance our organizational and soft skills necessary for our roles

  2. Help us network with each other and share best practices of volunteerism and leadership

  3. Develop a deeper understanding of our vision and objectives (as an organization and community at large)

  4. Discuss tough questions and challenges facing our organization in particular & the wider Muslim community and devise possible solutions with the help of qualified scholars and professionals in the Muslim community

  5. Instil a spirit of team work, excellence (Ihsan), and devotion for the pleasure of Allah, required for our work
