Understanding Islam Academy presents the monthly
Community Development Program (CDP)
A must-attend for anyone interested in volunteering for community projects and organizations!
(South-east corner of Burnhamthorpe and The West Mall)
Discussion Points: Why work and sacrifice for the community? What does Islam ask you to sacrifice for the well being of the society? How did the Prophet and Companions live the spirit of sacrifice, generousity and volunteerism? How can you re-live and revive the spirit of sacrifice for building a vibrant community today?
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:
Enhance our organizational and soft skills necessary for our roles
Help us network with each other and share best practices of volunteerism and leadership
Develop a deeper understanding of our vision and objectives (as an organization and community at large)
Create a dialogue and discuss tough questions and challenges facing our community and the human family; devise possible solutions with the help of professionals and qualified scholars in the community
Instil a spirit of team work, excellence (Ihsan), and devotion for the pleasure of Allah, required for our work
