In a world where Muslimahs’ are wrongly perceived as oppressed and insignificant members of the most misunderstood faith, we embarked upon this mission to give Muslimah’s an outlet to express the reality of their lifestyles, share accomplishments that benefit humanity and inspire others to do the same.
Exploring the roles of Muslimahs’, discussing the struggles of the changing environment as they relate to our roles, as well as addressing our daily challenges became primary focal points in our efforts towards engaging our communities.
Many services are available to combat the challenges faced by women, however many of them are missing much needed guidelines specific to Muslim women and families. One of the main elements is the foundation of unity built on sisterhood.
Being ME – Muslimah Empowered is a strong women’s support network that includes professionals from various industries, university students, educators, volunteers of various backgrounds, respected mothers, grandmothers and more.
Being ME conference is organized by women for women. This is the first women’s conference in Canada to address the daily lives and challenges facing the Muslim Woman today. Through our Annual Conference we aspire to provide growth as a community and individually, to celebrate successes, showcase achievements and to enlighten, encourage and empower every Muslimah.
Being ME is an expansion of the Mercy Mission Canada portfolio of serving the needs of the Muslim Community. This portfolio includes the recent launch of the Women’s Resource Centre in the GTA, the Charity Challenge, Meet the Neighbours campaign, AlKauthar Institute, and a growing list of essential programs and services.
