1,000 Strong For Sexual Health Education And Intervention Within The Muslim Community
1,000 Strong For Sexual Health Education And Intervention For The Muslim Community
We need 1,000 monthly supporters giving as little as $1 per day to help 1,000 Muslim teenagers receive a 4-week Islamic sexual education training at their local masjid.
Why Sexual Health Education And Intervention For Muslims
Young Muslims are not getting the proper education about sexual health at home or at their local mosque due to taboo. This absence in guidance is leading many Muslim youths to:
Expecting our Muslim youth with their natural desires and curiosity around sex to navigate through societal pressures, and be successful in their future relationships, on an Islamic education that amounts to "sex outside of marriage is haram" is a huge disservice to them and to our communities.
Who We Are And What We Want To Do About It
We are a team of Muslim social and tech entrepreneurs, mental health professionals, and relationship experts that brought you Purify Your Gaze.
Over the course of nine years and seeing our work reach and support 57,000 Muslims impacted by pornography addiction we've uncovered a staggering statistic from one of our research studies with 1,024 participants...
82% of those exposed to pornography never spoke to an adult in their life about it or were spoken to about sexuality from an Islamic perspective or the harms of pornography.
It's due time we stop young Muslims from becoming another statistic and we openly engage and educate them on sexual well being grounded within our Islamic values and traditions.
It's due time that we embrace their curiosity and answer the questions that they have on sexual, relational and reproductive health.
We want to change that which is why we are launching the 1,000 Strong campaign, an initiative focused on these three main themes:
Counseling And Support For Muslims Impacted By Pornography Addiction
Outreach To Islamic Schools And Mosques With Training For Educators And Youth Leaders
Research, Publishing, And Promotion Of Original Content
On Sexual Health For Muslims
Our Specific Goals With This Campaign
To achieve our goals at the scale of impact and the continued timeline we need 1,000 monthly supporters giving at least $30 per month this next year.
