Let Project Lina lift you up!
Project Lina provides training and support for developing a strong and healthy faith through bringing our whole selves to Islam, gaining a solid knowledge base, and maintaining community ties. It is particularly tailored to the struggles of being a female Muslim convert in today’s world.
The Project Lina Workshop is a 9-session workshop for Muslim female converts to Islam. The three main components of the workshop – Know Yourself, Declare Independence, and Tend Your Ties – are representative of some of the issues and problems Muslim converts deal with in today’s world. Anse Tamara leads the workshop with discussions about issues of culture, creed and connections with family, friends and community as attendees explore what it means to be a western female convert in today’s world. The workshop is not a ‘new Muslim’ course – rather it is an in-depth workshop for female converts – novice and veteran.
