Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Dayton

The Humanity First Community Dinner program in collaboration with Food for the Journey Project has fed around 60 people weekly culminating into 1500 people since May 2017 in the West Dayton Area.

With reference to goal # 16 Peace Justice & strong institutions:
1.The weekly event Coffee Cake & True Islam is working towards combating Islamophobia and building ties with the community. By providing a discussion platform/forum, the public is invited to ask any question on Islam and dispel their misconceptions and fear of Islam.

2. The ladies interfaith discussion group has built bridges across the Jewish, Christian and Muslim Communities by monthly dialogue on specific aspects of all three faiths. The growing popularity of this group is testimony to its non judgemental and genuine effort to understand the three religions by women who are passionate about what they believe in.

Ohio Sustainable Living Project

Despite the availability of technical solutions, over a billion people are still without any form of electricity and 3 billion people still cook over open fires.

This project emphasizes practical power: renewable, locally-sourced, sustainable energy solutions which lift people out of poverty.

  • Energy enables people to work their way out of poverty.
  • Energy provides better access to education and other basic services.
  • Energy improves health and wellbeing, especially for women and children.

The Sustainable Living Project is committed to sustainable energy because we know from our work on the ground that renewable energy sources are a powerful solution to many of the world’s greatest challenges, such as building sustainable communities, ending poverty, increasing access to healthcare, and more.

I Am Clean Energy

I Am Clean Energy is focused around a greener source of energy, one that will benefit everybody and leave a smaller footprint for generations to come.

We believe that patterns and types of energy production and consumption can change over to increased efficiency while maintaining and enhancing the quality of life for all people of the middle east. Moving toward a green economy will decrease per capita consumption of oil, increase oil exports, and decrease pollutants in the air, water, and soil. The environment will be cleaner, the food supply will be healthier for all, and the people of the middle east will be happier.
