Schools Outreach

This is one of ISB’s flagship projects, which has been developed over a decade and has far reaching impacts. The project has developed resources and training to enable individuals to engage with primary and secondary schools to supplement and enhance their teachings of Islam within the national curriculum, through interactive assemblies, classroom workshops and Mosque visits.

The programme offers school children to:

1

Learn about their local mosque
2

Hear the Qur'an
3

Watch the prayer being demonstrated
4

Learn about the five pillars
5

Write in Arabic and much more

It will often rest on individual teachers and the ability of local Muslim individuals and organisations to understand the needs of the syllabus and to have the necessary skills to deliver age-appropriate teachings. The challenge of delivery increases with the age of the groups being taught.

For 10 years, we have been running mosque-based workshops for school students around South Manchester. Now we want to expand our successful model to your local communities and provide training for you to:

Our training will demonstrate how to:

Liaise with schools

Deliver interactive workshops for primary and foundation-level secondary school students

Use and showcase our ready-made resources

During the last 10 days of Ramadan, ISB Manchester were feeding the homeless and most needy across Greater Manchester.

The month of Ramadan is an especially important part of the Islamic calendar when we help those most disadvantaged in society.

Thank you for all your help in achieving this goal. We delivered 5,600 freshly prepared meals. We have worked with several well-established grass roots voluntary organisations to distribute the meals to the homeless and most needy.

The ISB Manchester Campaign was also featured in Manchester Evening News and BBC Radio Manchester.
