Thanks to the generous support of the Qatar Foundation, Soliya recently held three successful Facilitation Training Seminars at Qatar University. Over a hundred students completed the seminars and received Soliya certificates.
Soliya congratulates our Board Member, Dalia Mogahed, on her recent appointment to US President Barack Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. The Council includes a select group of prominent religious and secular leaders and scholars from a wide range of backgrounds. Dalia is the Executive Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies in Washington, DC.
Soliya facilitator Amirah Ismail, from Arizona State University, receives the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship to complete a master's program and two internships in foreign service. Congratulations! Read the story here.
