The project aims to advance integration by promoting exchanges of ideas and knowledge, building the capacity of the youth.
Sheik Omar believes in the integration of communities, rather than assimilation, celebrating differences yet living as one. In Holland, while many young people turn away from the organized religion that was imposed on them, young Muslims are experiencing the opposite, with increasing numbers turning to their faith. When living in a country as a minority their religion is something that they understand and where they can find support. It is a religion that, according to Sheik Omar, gives you the choice, rather than imposing its teachings on you.
