Nisa’ Bintulu holds team-building programme
BINTULU: Some 50 members of Nisa’ Bintulu took part in the Untukmu Wanita Nisa’ team-building programme held at Jepak community hall here yesterday.
Nisa’ Bintulu chairperson cum programme director Hafsah Mardhiah Mohd Bekeri said Nisa’ is a non-governmental organisation for strengthening the Islamic teaching and activities especially among Muslim women.
“Although it is a women’s organisation and we are focusing more on Islamic teaching, Nisa’ through its various programmes plays an important role in providing welfare assistance to the local community,” Hafsah said when met before the programme kicked off.
Nisa’ organised many activities for members who were mostly volunteers In collaboration with the Bintulu unit of Yayasan Amal Malaysia Sarawak branch.
Hafsah said they have initiated various activities this year namely visited the women’s ward at Bintulu Hospital, Nisa’ teambuilding in Jepak village, prayers workshop in Sebauh and Jepak village, community service programme in Jepak village and others.
She said although Nisa’ was only formed in Bintulu in 2008 with few members, they have already organised many community activities for members.
“In every programme we organised, there was good response from the public, especially activities involving the people’s welfare,” Hafsah said.
According to her, the programme yesterday was not only for members but also for the community in Jepak village.
This she said was to promote Nisa’ to the people so they understand its role and what they could offer to the community apart from fostering relationship among Nisa’ members and the public.
Yayasan Amal Malaysia Sarawak branch of Bintulu unit chief Mohd Sardi Ismail said many programmes have been outlined for the future.
Asked if the programmes involve participation from the Youth and Sports office here, he said they are considering a collaborative project.
“We actually had some unofficial discussion with one of its officers recently about what they can assist in our programmes and we will collaborate with the Youth and Sports office after looking into the matter,” said Sardi.
He agreed that their involvement in the activities could bring more Muslim youths into the meaningful programme.
Bintulu Nisa’ advisor Hasanah Sharifuddin officiated at the opening of the programme yesterday.
