The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) is the oldest
Muslim youth organisation in the UK. They have thousands of British Muslim
youth volunteers across the 130 local chapters between the ages of seven and 40
AMYA has partnered up with many organisations to support
various charitable causes and contribute to their local communities in
countless ways. This has included tree planting, fundraising for British
charities, visiting elderly people in care homes, blood donations, feeding
sessions for homeless people and food bank donations.
One of these initiatives is the Big Clean-up on New Year’s Day when almost all 130 local branches arranged for a litter picking session
early morning knowing that the New Year’s Eve celebrations leave large amounts
of litter on the streets. In collaboration with councils in most cases, the
AMYA volunteers go out in large numbers to take part in cleaning sessions all
over the UK covering all major cities.
Farhad Ahmad, a national representative of AMYA and British
Imam said, “We feel strongly that it is
our religious and civic duty to organise these cleaning sessions and raise
awareness about this topic in general. From a religious perspective, both
cleanliness and looking after our local communities is an essential part of the
Our newest litter heroes are also Ambassadors for the Great
British Spring Clean. If you are inspired by their story, and whatever your
reasons for wanting to improve your local area, why not get involved in a
spring clean too. It only takes a minute to register at www.greatbritishspringclean.org.uk
and join an event or start planning your own.
