Muslim Islamic NewsMOEMIN to organize Workshop for Muslim NGOs

The Milli Gazette

Movement for Empowerment of Muslim Indians (MOEMIN)

Press Statement

NGOs play a major, crucial and vital role in the empowerment and development of a community and a country at large. In this world of competitiveness, chanellisation of the State affirmative actions, monitoring of the disbursements of welfare funds and constant interaction with welfare agencies are key factors on which every responsible community focuses its attention. 

Although the Muslim community is economically, socially and educationally backward in comparison to other communities of our country, it has fewer number of NGOs working for the empowerment and social uplift of the community. It is observed that most of the NGOs of the Muslim community, registered with the central and state governments, are unorganised and they lack infrastructure and proper guidance and have negligible information about the welfare schemes of the various government departments OR face the indifferent attitude of the bureaucracy in getting even a marginal share in the government welfare funds and in getting permission, affiliation and registration of new institutions of learning. 

It is observed that the present UPA government has initiated a number of welfare schemes for the minorities and there is a substantial increase in the favorable disposal of the applications and an increase in the permissions to start new professional institutes and centers of higher learning. However, much needs to be done. 

The Community’s initiative in proper petitioning for allocation of welfare funds to the community development projects, constant monitoring of minority-friendly welfare schemes and state affirmative actions and a continuous dialogue with policy-makers has great relevance and importance in today’s ambience. 

Keeping the importance of the issue in mind, MOEMIN is proposing to organize a three-day Workshop of the Muslim NGOs working in the field of education, social welfare, women empowerment and health sectors, during 22 – 24 December 2006 in New Delhi. We hope that Union Ministers of Human Resource Development, Minorities, Social Welfare and Health apart from officials from various ministries and government welfare bodies would grace the occasion in different sessions to disseminate information about government policies and to interact with the participating delegates. 
We are confident that representatives of around 500 NGOs from across the country working at ground level would participate in the workshop to share their experiences and interaction for future planning and to discover the means for fruitful co-operation with various government departments. 

The Workshop would also try to find means and ways to engage the corporate world in promoting the NGOs of the community. 

In view of the importance and sensitivity of the issue, we request all concerned activists and representatives of Muslim NGOs to kindly participate in the Workshop of the Muslim NGOs. We would be grateful if you kindly send your consent for your participation latest by 10 December 2006 along with the names of the participating delegates and their designation in the organisation. 

We would be further grateful if country-based activists send us detailed brochures containing the areas of their organisations' activities; names of the institutions run by their organisations along with the strengths of the students in each institution, status of the participation in welfare schemes, if any, during the last three years and information about the initiatives their organizations have undertaken in getting Central or state government welfare schemes and the details of the difficulties they have faced in getting the schemes sanctioned. This would help us to prepare a detailed report and action plan for remedies for presenting before the Workshop. 

To restrict the participation to genuine NGOs, it has been decided to request a nominal delegate fee of Rs. 300 per participant. A maximum of two delegates would be welcome from any one organisation
