Fawakih's curriculum has been taught on dozens of campuses across the US. Campus is a place for growth, change, and education. Fawakih aims to support chaplains, student leadership or professors.
WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
Unfortunately, opportunities for women to thrive and grow are not available in many of our communities. Over the years, Fawakih has trained and hired dozens of female instructors. Fawakih aims to support the education and empowerment of women.
Organizing communities can require a high level of self sacrifice and time. Fawakih supports those working towards social justice by providing opportunities to invest in themselves while serving others.
Serving the community requires giving out from oneself. Often times, this is to the neglect of meeting one's need to grow. Fawakih aims to support those who are building communities through youth work, relief efforts, non-profit leadership, and in other ways.
Often times, those who come to Islam do not find the adequate resources to continue their learning and transformation. Many new Muslims have found Fawakih to be a source of tools and inspiration to propel their journey.
Educators tirelessly give of themselves to students across the nation, finding little time to continue their professional development. Fawakih aims to support those teaching the next generation of Americans in the K-12 arena or throughout higher education.
