Leading by Example

Masha’Allah, a great initiative by Qabeelat Ittihaad Windsor highlighting key AlMaghrib Students and volunteers who are actively participating in their local community with various projects such as the ones highlighted in this short video. It is great to see our youth flourish into young leaders in their communities as key role models for the generations to come. A perfect example of how AlMaghrib Students and volunteers are putting knowledge into action. Keep a lockdown on http://ittihaad.com/inspire for more inspiring volunteers in the communities of Windsor.
