Food is considered a bounty of the Almighty and as such, wastage is not condoned in any form. Prophet Mohammed Rasulullah SAW states: “There is no deed greater than feeding the hungry”

Under the leadership of His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS, the Dawoodi Bohra community has always taken the matter of food security and food wastage very seriously.

Addressing the global issue of food security and food wastage, World Food Day is celebrated each year on the 16th of October. Its aim is to promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all, striving to achieve ZERO HUNGER. This is the second goal of 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN.

This year’s celebration is focused on educators and youth. Drawing inspiration from our longstanding traditions and in line with the United Nations’ World Food Day 2018 celebrations, Al Madrasa tus Saifiya tul Burhaniyah – Dar es Salaam organized several activities involving both educators and students, to create awareness and support the cause. Following are some of the activities that took place in our school:

• Class discussions, presentations and displays

• Essays and Articles writing

• Poster Competition

• Drill

• Best out of the waste

• Sharing is caring

• Show and tell , etc

To spread the above message beyond the school campus and share it with the society

• A WALK was organized on Saturday 13th October 2018 from 7:30 am to 9:30am.

Approximately 200 students and teachers participated in this walk. This walk Started from Hakimi Masjid Upanga – Magore Street – Bibititi Road – Olympio Street – Mfaume Street – and finished at Al Madrasa tus Saifiya tul Burhaniyah (Mfaume Street).

• Students, parents and well wishers donated food, which was distributed to the needy people.

We pray to Almighty to give us strength to strive hard and achieve ZERO WASTE and ZERO HUNGER and serve mankind. And grant our Maula His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS a long and healthy life till the day of qyaamat. (Aameen)
