Every day we watch the news and see images of fellow Muslims around the world going through hardships of life. Refugees crisis, poverty, hunger and limited access to education. We always feel helpless and needing to do more for our greater community. We want to give more than money we want to give effort, time and passion for solving our most pressing social issues and lifting the Muslim community up and sustaining its development. But, how can we do that? How can I find like-minded changemakers with a different skill set to build social projects?How might we invest the most valuable capital, our human capital to achieve sustainable development?
