In the last quarter of 2013, the Jamiatul Ulema Middelburg branch set up a task team to address the challenges facing the youth of our community, and the youth in general.
Alhamdulillah, in April 2014 the Middelburg Muslim Youth League was formed, debuting with a Father and Son Fun Walk which was a huge success with over 100 partticipants.
Our objective is to provide our youth with the best possible wholesome education, moulding them to be tomorrow’s leaders, thus creating a brighter future.
Subsequently, weekly Saturday morning programmes are held from 8am – 10am for the age group between 10 and 15 years old. The session is primarily broken up into 2 segments: Tarbiyyah and life skills.
Instilling of Islamic morals and ethos
Taking care of yourself and others ,
Good manners and a
Sense of responsibility,
Life Skills - Equipping learners with relevant basic skills that will enable them to be better human beings, and an asset to society.
Trade skills such as wiring a plug or changing a light bulb, to changing a car tyre or tap washer.
Preparing a simple meal
Self subsistence - Planting a tree and basic gardening
Basic First Aid.
We thank the Almighty Allah for granting us the opportunity of being of some service to Him. We request the prayer and support of our community in this venture.
