The regional Salam Community Barazas, purposed to reach out to communities across Uganda post-COVID-19, ended with the Kampala edition held at Masjid Mbogo Kawempe on December 18, 2022. The Salam Community Barazas have been to Fort Portal, Mbarara, Mbale, and Iganga, empowering communities with information and helping to navigate life after the COVID-19 pandemic.
With over 5000 attendees, this year’s top agenda was Development and learning of the Islamic religion.
Premised on the pillars of bridging the gap between Islam and the rest of the world and serving humanity through humanitarian acts and charity, Salam TV has, among others, used the Salam Community Barazas to equip communities’ local leadership structures with addresses from prominent Muslim scholars and experts in Business Development and Financial Management in a town hall setting.
“We have and continue to traverse various parts of Uganda with top minds on Islamic Finance, external labour, and Microfinance and do awareness on the different Government projects as we move towards addressing the knowledge gap and empower communities. This helps us to inspire and empower the next generation of leaders.” said Hajji Karim Kariisa, the Salam TV General Manager, before adding

Salam TV Brand Manager, Shafik Nekambuza, added, “The Barazas are community engagement events with prominent Sheikhs and corporate companies empowering Ugandans on issues that affect them daily. We want to impact as many people as possible. Most services end in Kampala, so we have decided to take it to other parts of the country.”
