Why Generous Juniors? A heartfelt message from our Ambassador: Rukhsana Khan (Award Winning Author)

TEAM

Ambassador

Rukhsana-Khan-banner

Asalamualaikum! 

My name is Rukhsana Khan and I’m a children’s author and storyteller.

My books have won a number of awards, one of them was even chosen by the New York Public library as one of the 100 Greatest Children’s Books in the Last 100 Years!

I visit around eighty schools a year, all over Canada, the U.S. and internationally, and I meet thousands of students from kindergarten to high school.

My work goes from light-hearted fun for primary children to serious issues like teen suicide, loss, abandonment and child refugees. But even my more serious presentations are laced with humour and are age appropriate.

When I was a kid growing up in the small town of Dundas, Ontario, I always dreamed of being an author. I feel blessed that my dreams have come true.

And now, at a time when there is so much conflict in the world, I hope my stories and work can help create some cross-cultural understanding.

NOTE: Rukhsana Khan’s books can be found for sale in the HCI Bookstore, please have a look HERE. All proceeds will go to HCI’s water projects!

Asalamualaikum! 


I’m Maryam Sinclair, an American writer, teacher and performing artist.


I live in Istanbul, where I study, research, and teach the lives of the prophets known in the Qur’an to families all over the globe.

I’m also the author of two award-winning books, When Wings Expand and Miraculous Happenings in the Year of the Elephant. In addition to these, I’ve written A Trust of Treasures, as well as five audio books: A Mercy to the Worlds, The Bowing of the Stars, The Fall of the Tyrant, Take Heed, and Scents of Paradise.

I have narrated classical Qur’anic stories to thousands of live listeners in the US, the UK,Turkey, Jordan, Pakistan, Australia, and New Zealand.

Club Coordinator

Asalamualaikum! 

I’m Hafsa Khan, your Generous Juniors Club Coordinator and fellow GJs parent.

I’ve grown up volunteering with HCI since I was a teenager, and I wanted that blessed experience for my daughters too. Together, we envisioned a Sadaqah club for kids. We dreamed of bringing together a community of like-minded parents and kids to join us in supporting HCI’s beautiful child sponsorship program, but on a new, more personal level.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, ideas and feedback by email at generousjrs@humanconcern.org.

OVERVIEW

The Program

HCI Generous Juniors is the FIRST international Islamic charity club especially for kids.

The aims: To inspire a giving lifestyle and mindset, and to foster meaningful connections between the members and their friends: the sponsored child that GJs will build a friendship with through letter-writing and video calls.

The fun n’ games: Are there to make the process joyful, relevant and memorable to our youngest givers!

Through communication with their friends, storytelling, inspirational workshops, poetry, song, and art, our members will embark on a blessed journey to make GIVING a way of LIVING.

 Attending school, however, is not enough. Children need to have access to qualified teachers, graduate school with relevant skills that leads to meaningful employment, and embody the character traits that enable them to lead healthy lives. 

Ultimately, we aim to build schools and talent pools to educate and equip children and young people to be the guardians and leaders of their futures and their communities’ health and well being.

Providing communities with access to education ensures that no child is left behind, and each child is provided an opportunity to learn relevant skills, earn a livelihood, and make an impact on their families, communities, and the world.
