One of our amazing participants Julie Siddiqi who created Together We Thrive empowering women in faith communities to be the best they can be, working together to really thrive.
She has been awarded an MBE as mentioned in an article here in the Windsor Observer
Mrs Siddiqi is also the Founder of Sadaqa Day which she started in 2015 - with the aim of encouraging mosques, community groups and individuals to give something back to the areas where they live.
Sadaqa Day provides a focus for busy people who cannot devote too much time to volunteering.
It is a day of social action - one date in the calendar when individuals, mosques and other places of worship, schools, women’s and community groups, scouts and guides groups can get involved - undertaking ready-and-waiting small tasks that one volunteer can deal with in a day.
We couldn't be more proud and inspired by her achievements.
