Today we are starting a series of blogs inspired by Dr Hany El-Banna’s epic journal on “Grassroots”. The series will be an ongoing, but not consecutive; so bear with us as we go through Dr. Hany El-Banna journey of engaging and working with our grassroots and what we can do to improve and enhance our work with them.

Grassroots Work, By Dr. Hany El-Banna

Introduction

Working on a grassroots level is the duty of every Muslim. Our duty is to plant seeds which will grow in to grass and then into woods and fruitful trees so that it creates habitats.

Very few of the seeds will make fruitful trees, trees that will become future community leaders. The majority of the grass which are seen as the masses are taken either left, right and centre by the fruitful action of these leaders who will be supported by the commitment of their supporters in the community (the wood).

How an organisation can work with the masses on a grass root level?

Before I start to explain this we have to discuss the following points:

1.       Aims and Objectives of the organisation according to the time scale

2.       Clarity

3        Simplicity

4.       Cost effectiveness

5.       Closeness and behaviour with the community

6.       Action in serving the community

To be continued…
