FEMYSO

femyso-logoThe Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organisations (FEMYSO) was established in 1996 and is the only youth organisation that brings together Muslim youth from all across Europe.

Its mission is to be a platform for Muslim youth organisations to congregate, exchange information, gain experience and benefit from each other, to work for a better Europe.

FEMYSO has a long history of working with grassroots Muslim youth organisations and has 34 member organisations in 22 European countries. Furthermore, FEMYSO has extensive knowledge of the European NGO sector, through its engagement with mainstream youth NGOs, the European Union and membership of the Council of Europe’s Conference of International NGOs and Youth Advisory Council.

MADE IN EUROPE

made-logoMADE in Europe is a Muslim-led movement of young people who want to see our community leading the fight against global poverty and injustice.

Half of the world’s population – that’s three billion people – live in absolute poverty. A life of poverty denies people access to basic human rights such as freedom of speech, education, healthcare and the ability to earn a living. Far from moving towards equality, global injustice is rising.

At the same time, the planet is being destroyed by irresponsible and selfish living and it’s the world’s poorest who are first to feel the effects of the changing climate.

This challenge will take more than just our money. Our response is rooted in the Islamic traditions of social action, justice and environmental stewardship. It’s about being smart, ethical and green in the way we live.

Our individual choices and actions have a huge impact on the lives of people across the world. By starting with changing ourselves, we can help bring about the world that Islam envisions – a world free from injustice and poverty.
