Our PHILOSOPHY:


The Association attaches significant value and importance to the role of women within the family and in society at large.

This is a fundamental Islamic belief that is inherent in all Islamic beliefs and practices. Islam recognizes the development individual identify and promotes the development of healthy individuals on the basis of conduct and piety. Superiority is not measured on the basis of ones gender, race, colour etc but on their ability to be just and promote good will.

We believe that every woman has the right to access diverse services to enable them to contribute effectively within the family and the community.

It is everybody's responsibility to ensure that women and other members of our community are provided with the means and ways of achieving these rights so that they can make the maximum contribution.

In order to fulfill our role of supporting, nurturing and responding to gaps in services delivery, we will continue to promote basic human rights and social justice through close partnerships as a way of remedy for addressing inequities and injustice.
