Kidz 4 Kidz Programme

Every year The GMWA’s Paradise Academy students participate in the ‘kidz 4 kidz ‘campaign with Ummah Welfare Trust. The students from of our madrasah learn the importance of helping other kids around the world, as well as appreciating everything that god has gifted them and to think of others that are less fortunate than themselves.
Students raise money from families and friends - Alhamdulilllah, last year we raised just under £5000 from our Madrassah. The money raised goes towards building schools, masjids and medical centres, as well as buying equipment, books, toys and gifts for young, orphaned children.
We act upon the Hadith of the Prophet (SAW) who said "..the best of you are those that benefit mankind the most.."
