THE REASON:

We often get requests to raise awareness and money for good causes around the world. We have many events throughout the year - our annual Iftar on the Thames, Eid in the Wharf and other fundraising dinners which help those in need.
 
While giving money is a noble act of worship there are many who wish give something even more valuable - their time.  For this reason we have established one of our most exciting initiatives yet - The WharfMA Annual Challenge. If you are looking for a challenge or simply want an adventurous weekend away with friends - then register now to take part in the opportunity of a lifetime.

THE CHALLENGE:

Join us on the weekend of 29th and 30th June to climb the tallest Peak in England and raise money for a local cause, the Alamiyah School (see below). 
 
This year's Challenge takes us to the Lake District and the attempt to reach the summit of Scafell Pike which towers an impressive 978 metres high and offers stunning views over Wastwater, the deepest lake in England.  On a clear day, you can see Wales, Scotland and Ireland. 
 
We have made arrangements for transport and accommodation and will be accepting applications up until the 15th of June.

THE CAUSE

Alamiyah Pre-school is an Ofsted registered pre-school based in Barking, East London which has outgrown its current premises and desperately needs funds to help purchase a new school building to sustain its growth: our target is £50,000.. 
 
It is the first school of its kind in the local area - combining the Montessori method of education with Prophetic teaching.  Not only does it provide holistic education - combining the secular with the divine, it engages with the local community undertaking a range of outreach initiatives, from offering workshops to parents and the local community; training teachers and supporting environmental causes. 
 
From its humble beginnings it now provides full time education for children aged 3-6 years as well as currently limited provision for children aged 6-9 years. New premises will allow them to grow a number of current initiatives to fruition, including breakfast and holiday clubs, a toddler group, archery club as well as permaculture projects. 
 
Testimony to its achievements so far  the school has established strong links with local stakeholders and national partners.  Kent and Sussex University are now working in partnership with them to run their Montessori Diploma within the school and train teachers with them. 
 
Alamiyah School is a fantastic example of Muslims working together to make a positive contribution to their local community.  Help us to help them reach the £50,000 target  needed.
