All praise to Allah Ta’ala, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN Skills Development Centre (SDC) was officially opened on Wednesday, 08 November 2017 by Hazrat Moulana Haroon Abasoomar, a Senior Aalim of South Africa and an Executive member of the Jamiatul Ulama KZN.
This initiative started off on a small scale three years ago at our Welfare Department which is located in the Durban CBD.
Alhamdulillah, it has now evolved to a fully-fledged centre in the hub of Overport, which is centrally located and is easily accessible by public transport.
The new modern premises feature a more aesthetically and conducive environment for learning with excellent equipment and facilities.
A brief road map of Skills Development Programme
As part of the socio economic responsibility, our objective is to take on this responsibility and assist needy and underprivileged women who are keen on uplifting and empowering themselves. The intention is to have a dedicated group of students per semester.
The group will attend a series of lectures and courses over a six month period which will include:
- Culinary Skills
- Islamic Education
- Micro Business Management
- Character Building
- Time Management
- Financial Budgeting
- Arts & Crafts
- Couples Marriage Counselling
- Pre and Post Marital Workshops
- Current challenges faced by young women
- Frail care training
We are highly ambitious that the SDC will become a Centre of excellence that will provide skills training and life empowerment to our cosmopolitan community, Inshallah.
We humbly request your Duas, voluntary support, expertise and financial contributions towards these efforts that will, Inshallah, become a means of Sawaab e Jaariyah for us all.
