Neighbourhood Cleanup Programme in Houston

On Saturday the 29th of February, 2020, as part of the sustained Neighbourhood Cleanup Programme, a cleanup activity was undertaken in and around the Mohammedi Masjid complex in Houston by community members and neighbours.

In 2016, the Dawoodi Bohra community in Houston partnered with the neighbouring Lifepath Church and Mustafa Masjid to start the Neighbourhood Cleanup Programme. With two cleanup drives every year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall, the aim of the programme is to foster awareness about cleanliness and to maintain a clean, green and healthy environment for those who come to worship and pray. It also provides the youth with an important learning experience and gives them the opportunity to engage in dialogue with their peers from diverse socio-religious backgrounds while coming together in the pursuit of common good and betterment.
