ARK answers your questions

How many additional Standing Orders achieved since the launch of the campaign?

We launched the Standing Order Campaign at the beginning of November 2021. We are in the process of developing a format in which to present the progress of the fundraising to publish in this newsletter.

How are you going to be inclusive of all races?

As Ark’s continuous organisational objective, inclusivity, is at the forefront of organizational discussions.

Ark is trying to understand the lived experiences of marginalized groups and developing activities to produce robust systematic change.

Robust diversity and inclusion organisational objectives, must be leadership-led. They must form part of the operational, as well as systemically focused functions of ARK

We are looking for a diverse team, if you want your voice to be heard and you feel you are under-represented, please get in touch, and climb on the Ark

How can we empower the younger generation to be proud of their religion. How can we put the love of Islam in their hearts?

This question isn’t an immediate objective of Ark our main focus is to fund raise at this stage.

This question can be directed to KMWA who can answer this in more depth.

What is PROJECT ARK?

The current climate of the last two years has proved that we need a bigger and better Masjid that better serves the community, in both good times and bad. A place to pray, laugh, seek advice, and comfort in trying times.

The New Medway Jamia Masjid is at a critical stage- the foundations, basement, and ground floor slab structure have been completed and we now need to build upwards. The KMWA and amazing community has brought us to this stage. However, at the current rate of money generation, it would take 20 years to complete the Masjid.

The current Masjid generates a lot of its funds for the year and for the new Masjid, via attendance. This has been greatly diminished for the last two years. The pandemic has decimated our community presence and with it the fundraising. Rather than just give up, we have taken this as a test from above of our resolve.

As such, KMWA are very excited to announce the start of The ARK Project @KMWA, which will help raise money and support the building of the new Masjid.
