Islamic Society of Sarasota Bradenton,
A very special WIN event at the Mosque. We will meet the five Middle-East students now studying at New College brought here by the Educate for Change Community Initiative (EFC). The community initiative remains inspired by Dr. Izzeldin Abulaish, author of I SHALL NOT HATE. Determined to keep his daughters memories alive, he established Daughters For Life, a non-profit, which educates women from the middle east regardless of nationality, religion or ethnic backgrounds-in the belief that women can improve their communities and bring peace to the region.
Breads, signifying holidays and/or family traditions was provided (with explanations) by WIN women along with a variety of teas and lots of conversation
