Ramadhan Relations – A new initiative

In: Al Haadi Hujjat Youth, Home Page, Hujjat, Inspirational Minds

*Ramadhan Relations*

Hujjat Helping Hands, Al-Haadi Youth and Inspirational Minds are honoured to launch an inter-generational initiative bringing together seniors in our community with the youth.

This scheme is a friendship between a Senior (any Lady or Gent 50+ can register) and Youth (Girl or Boy aged 5-18 years) from our community. It is aimed to enhance social interaction between the Seniors and Youth, both benefiting from each other’s virtual companionship during the month of Ramadan.

We hope to see the youth inspired by our community’s seniors, learning from their valuable life experience, teaching their mother tongue, and enhance their character and concept of servitude. While the youth can build companions in our seniors and teach modern day skills e.g. using Zoom to ensure our seniors are well equipped for the 21st century.

*Join the initiative*
If you would like to join the initiative, or believe someone may benefit from Ramadhan Relations, please register your interest by visiting tiny.cc/RamadhanRelations or contact Sonya Moledina on 07736 297 029 or Riyaz Khaku on 07405 609 022.

*How does it work?*

  1. Seniors will be identified by the Seniors Committee (Ladies) and Hujjat Helping Hands (Gents)
  2. Youth will be identified by Al-Haadi Youth
  3. Seniors will be paired with Youth for the duration of Ramadhan, and contact details will be exchanged with a guardian’s oversight.

InshAllah if this initiative is successful, we will aim to roll out other fun and interactive projects bringing the youth and seniors of our community together.

AGM/Election Postponement

In: Elections, Home Page, Hujjat

POSTPONEMENT OF AGM AND ELECTIONS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

27 April 2020

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

I pray this finds you well InshAllah.

In accordance with our Constitution we were expecting to hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in June and elections in May this year. However, in light of the coronavirus pandemic and based on current government health guidance, it is increasingly unlikely that these key events can proceed at such time in the manner prescribed by our Constitution.

Following discussion with our external charity lawyers and taking into account guidance provided by the Charity Commission, the EC wishes to inform you of the following decisions with respect to the AGM and elections:

• AGM expected to take place in June is postponed to 1 November 2020
• Elections expected to take place in May are postponed to 18 October 2020

Consequently, the current EC will stay in place until the postponed AGM.

The EC considered various other options prior to reaching the decision to postpone these key events – including holding the AGM and elections through electronic means. However, as it is currently expected that we will not need to postpone these events for more than a few months, and with the aim of keeping to the spirit of our Constitution, the legal advice is that postponement is a better option for our charity at this time.

The EC will revisit the AGM and election decisions (set out above) periodically – taking into account, in particular, current government and Charity Commission guidance. Should it become necessary to alter the arrangements (set out above) we will inform members accordingly.

With Salaams and Duas
