very encouraging because as an organisation we never expected to get as many participants as they were. Noordeen added that such a progress will encourage the organizing team to continue organizing such camps in the year to come.

Apart from the different activities which took place during the camp, a number of Muslim scholars were invited to present different topics that included, Chancellor College based Muslim scholar professor Samson Sajid who is also the Executive member for Malawi Council for Higher Education who presented the carrier talk to the young girls, A renown Sheikh Ahmad Chienda who is Limbe Islamic Information Bureau coordinator, a member of Muslim Theologians in Malawi, who presented on Islamic Topics such as Hajj & Umra and marriage issues in Islam.

“We invited different people to present different topics so that our participants can benefit from such talks like the one from Professor Sajid who came with the University orientation to our young girls. Her talk motivated our participants in determining their carriers before they get University selection, as regards to marriage and other Islamic topics presented by Sheikh Chienda, it is paramount that we understand this faith for us to be able to practice everything according to Islamic teachings,” said the Chair-lady.
