We are commencing general fundraising to secure the required funds. We also hope to launch various fundraising initiatives whereby the community can come together and raise funds required for this project.
As a community project, we are particularly looking forward to working with individuals, youth, families and local organisations to reach our goals and raise funds. We also hope to reach out to external communities and past residents of Aberdeen.
Once we progress with the project, we will be engaging with volunteers and would love to tap into the local skills and expertise in various areas of the community so that we can run new and exciting programs and activities for the community. We will be establishing a volunteer pool where the community can engage with the day to day activities of the mosque and share in the rewards!
