CDP is a series of town-hall discussions and workshops to help volunteers, activists, and leaders in the Muslim community develop themselves spiritually and organizationally to be effective agents of social change. CDP is an Understanding Islam Academy initiative (a project of DawaNet & Sound Vision)
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
