“A Shelter from Life’s Storms”
“WE HAVE A DREAM”
We proudly present to you a vision of hope THE MAWADDAH PROJECT.
MAWADDAH as you will discover is a:
- BIG DREAM but this is a
- BIG LIMITLESS WORLD where anything is possible because it is filled with
- BIG-HEARTED PEOPLE who also have
- BIG DREAMS for a
- BETTER WORLD.
Maybe Mawaddah is not your exact dream and maybe your dream is not exactly the ‘Mawaddah Dream ‘- But maybe, just maybe through this ‘Mawaddah Dream’ proposal we can bring together a Dream Weaving Team to help and support each other make each every one of our Better World Dreams come true. Perhaps we can even bridge everyone’s dream into one Huge World Changing Dream whereby we truly realize the Family Spirit of Humanity.
NO-ONE LIKES TO BE COMPLETELY ALONE IN LIFE BUT TO BE ALONE AS A CHILD BEGINNING LIFE AND TO BE ALONE AS AN ELDERLY PERSON IN THE LATER STAGES OF LIFE IS THE LONELIEST ALONE OF ALL.
NO-ONE DESERVES THIS STATE OF ALONE-NESS!
THE VISION OF MAWADDAH IS TO HELP ALLEVIATE THESE STATES OF ALONE-NESS BY REPLACING THEM WITH AN ALTERNATIVE LOVING COMMUNAL FAMILY ENVIRONMENT.
Mawaddah is a gifted Vision of Hope to share with the world.
It is an immense honor to represent the idea of a much needed family environment for certain members of life’s community through the following proposed charity project.
A Community Service and Outreach Center designed to integrate the elderly in need of care together with homeless women, and orphaned children in a shared loving supportive family atmosphere.
Mawaddah Project aims long term to involve the local communities in its activities and thereby create one large supportive community family spirit.
This proposed social center will eventually stage by stage house homes for the elderly, an incorporated shelter for homeless women and their children a neighboring orphanage, a worship area, a communal self-maintained garden, a combined training and healing center, a swimming pool, health club and a consultancy company.
Mawadda will be staffed by trained, experienced passionate people who share in Mawaddah’s One Family Vision.
Project Facilities and Services.
- Initial Facilities: Consultancy Company, Training & Healing Center, Home for Elderly, Women’s Shelter, Worship Area, and a Communal Garden.
- Future Proposed Facilities: Orphanage, Child Day Care Facility, Swimming Pool, Outdoor Sports/Exercise Area and a Health Club.
1. Initial Facilities
1. 1. Consultancy Company
A management consultancy company’s purpose as a part of stage one of Mawaddah’s development is to help set up and launch Mawaddah’s initial facilities. In stage two of Mawaddah’s growth the consultancy company will focus on continued facility development as well as generating support income. This company will work both internally and externally. Another of its ongoing objectives will be to service Mawaddah’s facilities ensuring that they always run at optimum up-to-date efficiency.
1. 2. Training and Healing Center
A facility offering personal and language skills development where pursuing one’s passions and life dreams is encouraged. The aim of The Training and Healing Center is to help build self-confidence and self-esteem through increasing personal knowledge and personal skills. Self confidence and high self-esteem lead to personal healing, success and achievement.
The Training and Healing center is also working internally and externally in order to support finance.
1. 3. Parents’ Home (House of Wisdom) for the elderly people
The Parents’ Home or House of Wisdom will consist of a single multi-floored building with both double and single rooms to facilitate both married and single parents, a communal activity hall and a community dining room plus accommodation for trained staff to be on the premises 24 hours of the day, a first aid room and an administration office.
The design of the House of Wisdom will be aesthetically pleasing and in keeping with the requirements of the elderly in regard to all safety aspects, accessibility, and usability.
1. 4. Women’s Shelter: ‘Haven of Hope’
Part of The House of Wisdom will be set aside as a Women’s Shelter. Any woman with or without children irrespective of her background or personal circumstances may at some point in her life find herself homeless and very afraid that she has nowhere to turn!
A woman may find herself destitute for numerous reasons but whatever the reason it is a part of Mawaddah’s vision to offer homeless women a safe haven where mind body and spirit healing are the primary objective as personal hope and self esteem are restored.
Family is the key word in every aspect of Mawaddah’s vision; hence our proposed ‘Haven of Hope’ is in the same building as our ‘House of Wisdom’. Living in such close proximity will allow the elderly and the women and children to interact as surrogate families for each other whereby the emotional needs of all have the potential to be met
The women of ‘Haven of Hope’ may also help staff the ‘House of Wisdom’ and thus feel useful and of worth. Working in this way offers women experience that may not have otherwise gained which will facilitate them confidence and experience to later integrate back into normal life as self supporting members of society!
1. 5. Worship Area
A communal center of worship for all religions will be available to all Mawaddah staff residents and visitors. Under one roof all faiths will be facilitated and respected. Mawaddah believes in Oneness and will strive in all it undertakes to bring people together as one unified loving family.
1. 6. Communal Garden
Gardens by their very nature are therapeutic, social and healing. Mawaddah’s communal garden will be designed to serve as a restful social relaxation area, a functioning mini farm and a gentle exercise outlet. To adequately accommodate our initial family needs we will incorporate wheel chair access, wide level paths, raised garden beds, hand rails, benches and viewing areas. Mawaddah’s entire family including staff, family members and visitors will be welcome to partake in either simply enjoy or helping maintain our centrally located garden. Emphasis will be placed on giving as much viewing access as possible to the garden area from Mawaddah’s main buildings.
This topic can be greatly expanded on as the Mawaddah Project grows, for example the communal garden later could be extended into a partially self-sustaining mini farm.
MAWADDAH is a SEEDED VISION of HOPE
And as with all planted seeds it can only grow into its
stage by stage.
2. Future Facilities
2. 1. Children’s Home (Home of the Future) for abandoned, homeless and orphaned children.
Mawaddah’s Children’s Home will add another separate multi floored well staffed and facilitated building to its complex.
Mawaddah’s Home of the Future aims to create a peaceful, stable, family environment for its children where they feel safe secure and loved. Children will be encouraged to be self-confident independent young persons who will later happily reintegrate into the community as healthy, responsible well educated adults with clear life directions.
Every child has potential – it will be Mawaddah’s responsibility to help each child in its family to tap into their own unique God gifted potential and help inspire them strive to achieve it!
Every child is an expression of Mind Body and Spirit – Mawaddah’s will fully endeavor to nurture each of these aspects of every one of its children.
CHILDREN ARE THE HOPE OF THE FUTURE
How the future is shaped is dependent on the life foundation given to the children of now. Mawaddah as it cares for its children will do its best to help shape a bright, peaceful, loving future for our world.
2. 2. Child Day Care facility
Mahwaddah’s Day Care Center firstly provides its staff with a free day care incorporating a preparatory educational facility for their young children.
Secondly to help generate income for Mawaddah this day care and preparatory education facility will be open to the public.
Lastly children of suitable ages from Mawaddah’s Home of the Future will join in activities here. This helps Mawaddah’s young family integrate with regular family children and perhaps build up lasting supportive life time friendships which help bridge understandings of life both life styles
Our mission as we care for children is to create a natural safe learning environment where children learn about life and academics from highly motivated instructors and careers. We further hope to awaken children the essence of their spirits in harmony with the spirit of life while helping them developing independence, self confidence and self esteem.
2. 3. Swimming Pool
Our swimming pool will serve all of Mawaddah’s family and be both recreational and therapeutic.
2. 4. Health Club
The health club will be especially designed as a center of social interaction between parents staff and children where both general exercise equipment and specific physiotherapy equipment is used side by side. Here everyone will be energized and emotionally uplifted as they work out in a relaxed loving atmosphere of friendship and unity.
2. 5. Outdoor Sports/Exercise Area
A healthy body creates a healthy mind and an active body creates an active mind. It matters not if you are 1 year old or 101 years old; the more active you are the healthier you are.
Initially this sports exercise area will be a free open play and walk area for young and old alike divided in two. One half will be for more youth full activities mostly decided on by the children themselves for there personal entertainment. However organized team sporting activities like soccer or basket ball will also be regularly organized. Team sports will benefit our young family by instilling in them the value of team spirit – irrespective of winning or losing – and cooperation with others.
The other half of our exercise area will be set up to accommodate more gentle activities for our elderly plus house a viewing area for spectators of our team events.
Long term we will try to establish connections with other similar facilities and regular schools to join us for organized sports days. We will also do our best to motive well known sports clubs to sponsor and integrate our Children of the Future into their sporting and team activities.
THIS PRESENTATION OF ONE PERSON’S INSPIRED VISION IS HOPEFULLY STEP ONE IN TURNING MAWADDAH INTO REALITY!
The idea of Mawaddah may have started with One but One committed DREAM TEAM is required to bring Mawaddah to reality.
This is not a ‘One Alone’ project this is an ‘All as One’ Project!
As people serve each other and life the worth of service in life is more fully understood. Life serves each one of us every day and it is our inherent responsibility to serve life every day in every way in return.
That Which is Given is Always Returned!
(Or lack of)
*Finally this document is not a personal business proposal. This document is merely a representation of a passion fuelled idea we present to the world in full faith that one day, some way it will be realized.
To be a part of this dream would be amazing but so too would seeing it brought to fruition by any means possible.
We are at your service if you care to pursue this dream or simply discuss it further with us.
