MCASS X UofT MSA (St. George Campus) Collaboration
The UofT MSA (St. George Campus) and Muslim Children’s Aid and Support Services (MCASS) partnership continues with Petite Pop-Up. This community event serves as a launch for the fifth annual Petite Edition published by The Muslim Voice; a magazine especially for children aged 7-12. Petite Pop-Up will be fun for the entire family. Each child aged 7-12 will receive their very own copy of the magazine.
Oftentimes, children in the community can feel disconnected from their Muslim identity whilst living in North America. This event will bring together children, youth, and families in the community to create and celebrate their cultures and identities. Children and youth will have lots of opportunities to showcase their creativity and individual identities through icing and decorating cupcakes, getting their faces painted, and participating in an art competition. They’ll have the chance to engage with university students who have contributed to the Petite Edition to learn and be entertained and inspired.
There will be socializing for children, youth, and parents alike while enjoying tasty refreshments provided by one of the ladies of our Healthy Hearts program.
Introduction to The Muslim Voice (TMV)
The Muslim Voice is a platform that is dedicated to encouraging Muslims in the GTA to express themselves authentically – through their writing, spoken word and art.
Five years ago, we launched The Muslim Voice Petite Edition, which is a magazine dedicated to youth in the GTA launched annually. This magazine is of particular significance as we write stories for children, create graphics that can be understood by children, and include activities that will maintain the engagement of children. The purpose is to include the youth in the Muslim community and to encourage them to pursue their creative expression.
Each year, we collaborate with an organization that helps connect us with the children in the community. This year, The Muslim Voice intends to hold an event where youth are able to interact with each other, with The Muslim Voice team and find inspiration through the community. This issue will discuss themes of kindness, patience and trust in Allah. The stories have been carefully selected to present these ideas to children and nurture an environment of positive personal growth.
Meet Our Tournament Coordinator Eesha Fahad
I’m a second-year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto serving as the Editor in Chief of The Muslim Voice this year. I’m so excited to bring this event back in-person and provide an opportunity for the children and the youth of the community to engage with the magazine through interacting with each other and engaging in various activities.
