Letter from the Director
Newham Islamic Learning centre is an organisation which exists to serve the community we work in. We believe that stable, well rounded individuals contribute to the development of a stable, sustainable community.
We want to empower everyone from the children, to the youth to the mothers to be able to be active and confident participants in society, and know that in order to do so they need to be spiritually, mentally and physically healthy.
We also acknowledge that our borough has specific issues that need to be combatted and we aim to address these through our community initiatives.
