MADE’s education programme has inspired hundreds of young people to make change. Our training, workshops and sessions have informed them about issues of social justice and raised awareness about the Islamic perspective on poverty, global hunger, fair trade, workers’ rights and the environment. Through our education and campaigns we have enabled young people to build on their knowledge to take action, through providing specific tools and training including advocacy skills, and by supporting youth-led social action.
MADE have focused on delivering tailored courses to three different groups: University Islamic Societies, trainee scholars and the general public. In these sessions 73% said it had inspired them to make relevant changes to their own lifestyle, 79% said it increased skills to a large or very large extent and 81% reported that it had increased their motivation to take action to a large or very large extent. To date a total of 98% of young people we worked with have learnt something new through our resources and sessions and over 80% felt inspired to make a personal change in their life.
