Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Dayton

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.

SDG Glasses

We discovered the idea for this amazing kids’ (or kid-at-heart) craft in a blog post on Our Global Classroom. We created a PDF from the image they provided, and invite you to download it, here.

The blog also suggested making short videos, wearing the glasses, and describing your vision for what 2030 could look like if we achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. If you do make a video, please let us know by posting on Facebook, or Twitter, using #PeaceDayton.
