Our Recent projects

Sponsor future Muslim Chaplains

Chaplains play a vital role in the most intimate parts of a person’s life, providing spiritual support for the elderly, the sick, students, and individuals at every stage. This program is in partnership with Université de Fribourg.

Cambridge Muslim College Scholarship

How can we tackle the need for trained professionals? We encourage students through dedicated scholarships. We have partnered with Cambridge Muslim College for two of their programs; Leadership and Islamic Psychology.

Islamic Courses for kids in Schools

We do not have any official institution bringing Islamic education into schools. Our children miss out on learning about their faith in a public school setting with trained teachers.
