O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. – Holy Qur’an
In a “global village” as the world is today, identifying oneself with a community and it’s grassroots is a rare occurrence. However, the Memon Community around the world has set a commendable example of upholding it’s traditions and values and thereby creating a sense of brotherhood withing the global muslim community benefitting many memons and non memons alike.
This was the objective that paved the way for the World Memon Organisation in bringing together the Memons from around the world under one global umbrella.
The Far East Chapter of the WMO has a lined It’s vision accordingly and has been at the forefront of supporting and uniting memons from all walks of life to work together and to move forward as a better society.
Far East Chapters Sri Lankan identity allows them to be naturally the most hospitable people among the Memons as the chapter is renown across the other chapters for.
From hosting AGM’s to organising the first ever Memon Premier League, the Far East Chapter has set the benchmark for world class event organising and hospitality.
Far East Chapter has carried out many projects at the grassroots level.
The newly formed Youth Wing focuses on the development and assistance of the young generation by organising leadership training programs for boys and girls. The most successful of them being the SpeechCraft Program conducted by Toastmasters International which was afforded Free of Cost to 30 participants who were able to enhance their CV with the completion of this world recognised program.
In addition, the youth wing organises sports events that brings the community together and encourages meet and greets (while always maintaining the islamic ethos and not allowing free mixing).
The ladies wing that works closely with the Youth Wing assists in organising similar programs for the women folk of the community.
Once again, the Far East Chapter is proud to be recognised as the most hospitable memon community across the globe, while also being fully committed to creating a better society for the Memons of this region.
