Sports have always been touted as the most singular vocation to occupy the physical
and mental energies of young people and administrators and governments worldwide have found this to be true after initiating sports programmes in mostly depressed communities.
It was subscription to this belief that prompted the administrators of the Masjid An-Najm and Social Centre (MANSC), Independence Boulevard, Albouystown, to initiate sports programmes that cater for the development of residents of that community. Consequently, the Partnership for Networking and Development in Communities (PNDC), a non-profit group, has donated a set of gear to the MANSC to aid in the progression of their work.
Director of the MANSC, Naeem Muhammad received the gear yesterday morning in the company of his colleague Abdul Rahim Forde and said that they were indeed grateful for the gift. “These gear will be added to our store and will be used for the development of residents of the Albouystown community,” explained Imam Mohammad. He said that his organization has been able to construct a court to the south of the Mosque that allows the residents to engage in basketball and football while they can indulge in other disciplines in an area inside of the Mosque. These include table tennis, judo and bodybuilding among others. Both Abdul Rahim Forde and Naeem Muhammad expressed profound gratitude to their benefactor while committing to the continued development of their charges.
