Operation "Saving our Youth"
It is not news that the environment of public schools in North America is a very real danger facing our Muslim youth. Every day they are exposed to drugs, violence, sex, drinking, corruption of every kind, and unimaginable immoral behavior. On the average, 96,000 teens are arrested every year for criminal charges. One of every three is sexually active before the age of 14. Teenage pregnancy rates continue to climb. Drug use among middle school students is quite common.
Full-time Islamic schools create a safe haven that are drug-free and promote a clean, moral environment. It is estimated that only 2-3% of Muslim youth in North America attend full-time Islamic schools. Weekend Islamic schools are a good, humble beginning; however, they are not adequate enough to do the job of keeping our young people protected from the corruption around them.
Operation "Saving Our Youth" provides financial assistance to Islamic Schools by aiding with fundraising activities, and by providing scholarships to qualified Muslim youth whose families would not normally be able to afford the tuition.
If you would like to earn continuous sadaka by protecting the Islamic identity and supporting the education of our youth, please write your check payable to GRF, noting on the memo, "Operation Saving Our Youth". It is the kind of program that can really empower our community so that the "able" may support the "unable" for the sake of Allah.
