Applications Invited – Regional Youth Executive Middle East Chapter
Message from the
Global Youth Wing Chairman
Working within the WMO for the sake of Allah SWT is a huge privilege and blessing and a wonderfully satisfying way to work for the community to bring about real change. It is immensely satisfying to drive oneself for the benefit of others and also develop one’s own skill set, outlook and perspective on life whilst improving on that journey.
I can categorically say from personal experience that working within the charitable sector as a volunteer at any level should have profoundly satisfying, positive and fruitful impact on one’s own life and development Inshallah.
Within the WMO there is a momentum of change which wants to recognize and promote the immense talent that prevails within our Youth.
I am really excited at the prospect of meeting the newly selected RYE’s and we hope to be using this opportunity to bring into the WMO in some way all potential candidates applying for this role.
May Allah SWT guide us on the straight path and strive to do his work for the benefit of others without pride or prejudice – Aameen.
