In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful
Youth’s vision is to create a poverty-free Hashimi community in Sri Lanka, driven by the next generation of home-grown leaders.
Youth’s works to bridge gaps in society by uniting youth from diverse backgrounds, equipping them with leadership, problem solving and teamwork skills, and engaging them in community service and active citizenship.
Respect for the individual
Practical & realistic
Meet deadlines with time management
The capacity to embrace diversity and to respect diverse viewpoints is pivotal for effective leadership. A root cause of the divisiveness in Sri Lanka today is the divided educational system, which has fragmented the young generation and impedes progress in Sri Lanka. This to be end, programs are designed to unite youth from the four different educational systems in Sri Lanka – English medium, Sinhala medium, Tamil medium and Madrassa.
Hashimi youth works with the nation’s bright youth to instill value-driven leadership ideas within them. Participants develop diagnostic skills and discuss the characteristics of a leader through large class discussions and small group case analysis. Hashimi’s leadership programs push the students out of their comfort zones, teach them to appreciate diverse viewpoints and establish an open channel of communication.
The difference between the wealthy and impoverished is a stark reality in a community. Therefore, Hashimi youth promotes active citizenship among its young participants so they are prepared to address the developmental challenges of Hashimi community. The program facilitates community service projects, in which they apply their creativity and leadership skills gained in the classroom.
Preparing Youth for Work
Ensuring quality basic education for all young men and women, and developing a demand-driven vocational and technical education system.
Creating Quality Jobs for Young Men and Women
Focusing on the generation of formal sector jobs, but not forgetting the needs of the poor and disadvantaged youth.
Empowering youth and facilitating their entry into business, and the gradual transformation of the informal economy to formal sector activities to create more and better jobs for young men and women.
Positioning (character) of the plan:
Youth development section based on the long-term comprehensive plan, first initial phase has basic two steps:  Leadership Training  Community Service
The second phase of the basic plan aim at young healthy upbringing in a long-term viewpoint. The need to tackle the problem of high youth unemployment in Hashimi’s community requires immediate coordinated actions and initiatives, capitalizing on young people's creativity and innovative ideas.
Taking into consideration the Hashimi’s ‘Youth Opportunities Initiative’ and the current adverse socio-economic conditions in our Hashimi community, an operational Action Plan has to be elaborated aiming at strengthening youth employment and entrepreneurship ,ensuring that the objectives are realized in midterm and long-term. Young upbringing to take the next era on is an important problem in a community.
Activities at Hashimi
Building Bridges through Leadership Training @ Hashimi. Building bridges through Leadership Training Hashimi’s signature leadership training program offered twice a year to College and first year University students, Madrassa’s, English, Sinhala, and Tamil medium School’s. The goal of the four-month long program is to train young people and equip them with necessary communication and leadership skills to make a positive impact on society. After undergoing a rigorous admission process, selected applicants are granted a full scholarship. Participants are awarded a certificate from Hashimi, after successfully completing the program. The program has two components:
Leadership Training: During the first month, students attend intensive classroom lectures on leadership skills. Youth action plan's main processing approach is to recruit young people in public to organize teams in a voluntary way – individuals can apply through School’s, College’s or Universitie’s, Madrassa’s and groups can invite NGO's representatives who have engaged with issues related to youths, or experts or scholars of study-field research become professionals to help groups schedule action plans, think about ideas, take part and make assessments. This approach utilizes program participants’ own experiences and the classroom environment itself as a“learning laboratory” for understanding the different concepts of leadership, such as:
Public speaking and presentation skills
Self-assessment and development
Group dynamics and teamwork
Real world problem solving
Community Service: During the next three months, students conduct independent community service projects in different geographical locations and underdeveloped areas. The projects allow participants to apply their skills and knowledge gained through the classroom discussions in a real world setting by serving their local community.
