This camp has been rated as one of the best so far. To what and whom do you give the credit for it ?
Ms Amrin Baig : Alhamdulillah,All the credit goes to Allah(swt), for Allah’s Mercy and Help was throughout the camp through different people who have been a part of this camp.
Like Amire Halqa and Molana Mubeen out of their busy schedules, helped us to pre-plan things meticulously before the camp.
The camp incharge Mrs. Saleha Asif and all the ladies of the Women’s Wing too were very helpful.
Jamat’s Rufaka and Mustafa chacha and all the cooks n helpers have been very kind.
Allah made it a perfect team with all the GIO girls.
How did the girls benefit from the camp?
Ms Amrin Baig : Alhamdulillah, through this camp a remarkable thing noted was that the girls learnt to get connected to each other as muslims sisters.
They’ve learnt how they answer common and contemporary issues they face in their day to day life.
