Who We Are
Paving the Way to a Brighter Future
Starting off as nothing more than Friday night basketball and a summer camp for Muslim youth, the deenSTRONG Foundation was established in 2009 by Mahdi Qasqas and Mohamed El-Rafih. An organization that aims to support youth, deenSTRONG holds various camps annually, including day camps for young children and leadership programs for teens and young adults. Currently, the deenSTRONG Foundation is raising funds to build a Youth Hub where youth of all backgrounds can hang out, participate in fun development programs and be around positive role models.
Overall, our goal is to advocate for social justice and youth leadership development. We achieve this by providing a safe and supportive environment for our youth to learn new skills, connect with one another and contribute to the betterment of our community.
