An Expression of Gratitude
In an expression of gratitude, the Khoja Shia Isna Ashari Jamaat Mumbai organised a felicitation program for Br. Shabbirhussein Khalfan on 18th June 2016 at Mehfil-e Mustafa, JuhuKapaswadi, Mumbai.
Br. Shabbir, who is part of The Capacity Building Group of The World Federation, was in Mumbai as part of the India Youth Camps organised by The World Federation and KSIJ Mumbai.
As the Head of Teacher’s Development of MCE in Africa, he was the perfect person to run the Mentor Development Program (MDP) that was held on 28th & 29th May. During this program, he trained the mentors who then went on to successfully handle the youth camps held from 30th May to 5th June 2016.
A shawl and a memento were presented to Br. Shabbir as a token of appreciation for his selfless efforts.
As I contemplate on how to pen down my experience as a mentor for the recently concluded WF girls’ youth course, my thoughts run to the time when I was a little girl and yearned to go out and explore the world, similar to these girls who were bubbling with exuberance, vitality and an insatiable thirst for learning new things. My mentoring experience to these girls was exhilarating and a source of enlightenment.
We held a Mentor Training Program as the next step for those who had already taken part in either our Leadership or Youth Development Programs.
