The construction of the Centre began in mid-November 2005 with the vision of a long term project to establish an Islamic community center that has also a school, a library, a learning centre and an authentic center for promoting Islam. Alhamdulillah, construction was completed and the Centre was operational in November 2006. The new Centre is named Al Mahdi Islamic Community Centre.
The building has two halls downstairs with a hallway in between and 3 small rooms upstairs. There are currently 12 to 13 teachers and usually student enrolment varies from 70 students to 100 students.
The future plan is to find a place where there are proper classrooms to sustain the number of children attending. With good space, we can give children the school environment for better learning. Emphasis will also be put on volunteers to participate and become involved in a leadership role within the community.
- Lack of volunteers
- Cost of running Sunday Madrassah is high
