Testimonials from course participants:
“[This course] helped build my confidence to get people involved in an issue they may not be aware of, and made me realise the huge potential for activism in Muslim communities.”
“Our prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a campaigner- this really motivated to change things in my local community. This has motivated me to become the change instead of waiting for the change I wanted to see.”
“This was an incredible experience and eye-opening regarding how much more needs to be done on our part.”
“Very beneficial training. Really addressed and highlights the need for active participation by youth. Engaging, motivating and enjoyable.”
