Ismaili org writes: About Al-Ummah Europe 2014
Al-Ummah 2014, a nine-day long residential programme, aims to empower the youth of today’s Jamat by inspiring participants to:
Challenge themselves with a multitude of spine-tingling activities, from gorge walking to rafting to an overnight expedition; pushing themselves to…
Develop into ambassadors and future leaders of the Jamat by strengthening their leadership skills and gaining a real understanding of what it means to be Ismaili in the Industrialised world, and finally…
Become a more confident individual and leave Al-Ummah having shared fantastic experiences with life-long friends and acquired the confidence and ability to clearly articulate their ideas.
Since its creation in 1982, Al-Ummah has instilled cultural and religious identity among hundreds of participants. Here are some comments from those who attended last year’s Residential:
“Al-Ummah is a very positive life changing experience. You form lifelong friendships; gain a better attitude towards challenges and difficulties; build confidence and test your physical and mental boundaries!”
“I am blessed to have had the opportunity to attend this camp and regularly keep in touch with my Al-Ummah friends from around the world. Al-Ummah will always remain part of my bloodstream.”
“Al-Ummah is an exciting, whirlwind journey alongside talented young leaders of tomorrow. It pushes you out of your comfort zone by immersing you in an environment which is physically, emotionally and intellectually challenging, all at the same time.”
“The programme brings out the best in you and you are guaranteed to leave with memories filled with smiles and laughter!”
“The diversity of participants gives an insight into and an appreciation of different cultures, formed from a common tradition, with an evident unspoken bond present between all.”
