Mr Jawaid Mahmood ( Founder & Managing Director )
Mr Jawaid Mahmood has always been engaged in social welfare activities. Acting as a guardian and caretaker of the minority communities in Patna and surrounding areas, he started All India Muslim Youth Majlis to address the glaring inequalities he saw in the realm of education and healthcare in 1988. The organisation got registered in 1990. Due to its culturally sensitive services, the NGO has been able to build the trust of young people and deal effectively with the social pressures the youth from the Muslim community have never before been able to examine and approach with a degree of freedom. Its mission is to be a platform for youth organizations to congregate, exchange information, gain experience and benefit from each other, to work for a better India. All India Muslim Youth Majlis works through grants from various charitable trusts, government departments, independent fundraising and donations from individuals. The NGO has secured registration for Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 1976 with the Ministry of Home Affairs Government of India for availing Foreign Contributions for its Cultural, Educational and Social activities. Under Mr Mahmood’s leadership, the team of 11 members has been on a fulfilling journey of community development through mutual championing.
An ancient Chinese proverb proclaims: “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.”
All India Muslim Youth Majlis believes that education is a human right. Education catalyzes change while addressing the roots of chronic poverty and hunger. AIMYM makes extensive efforts to bridge the educational gap, especially that for the women and children of minority communities. It also works in the field of healthcare, as access to public health services is nominal and health standards are grossly inadequate for the vulnerable sections of the society.
It started its operations in 1988 in Patna, under the leadership of Mr Jawaid Mahmood.
Both formal and informal educational programmes must address the differing needs in urban and rural contexts. Taking on the difficult job of navigating these differences, AIMYM constructs schools and vocational training centres, and rebuilds and supports existing schools. It also supplies needy orphans with tuition scholarships and needy children with school supplies and backpacks. It encourages workforce development through adult skill training, with an emphasis on the use of traditional sustainable knowledge and the development of technology that is adapted to local skills, needs and resources.
Education rates in India are particularly low among Muslim women. Socio-economic factors, as well as the pressure to get married early, ensures that many never attain formal schooling, or drop out if they start at all. This reinforces the image of Muslim women as backward, weak and incapable. All India Muslim Youth Majlis runs a madarsa in Bihar, where impoverished Muslim boys and girls get Islamic and modern education, as well as technical training in computers. Orphaned children also get housed and fed here.
All India Muslim Youth Majlis shows the inclusive beauty of the human experience through programs that reach the destitute countrywide. The team of trainers and consultants come from various professions, enriching the services that the NGO offers. Although they combine an understanding of social, cultural and spiritual needs of minorities specifically, their services are not exclusive to a particular community.
