3rd World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists

Amir A Dossal

The third annual World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists (WCMP) provided a unique forum for more then 250 international leaders from public and private sectors to discuss the role of social entrepreneurs and smart philanthropy in finding sustainable solutions to current global issues. This historic initiative, which is the brainchild of Dr Tariq Cheema, brought together key global players to discuss creative ideas to engage both the Muslim philanthropic community and others for addressing the Millennium Development Goals through new partnerships. The United Nations Office for Partnerships was a strategic partner for this event.

‘This year’s Congress is focused on how philanthropic, public and private sectors can more effectively respond to the worsening global issues of hunger, poverty, disease and, most importantly, conflict and youth radicalization,’ noted Her Excellency Sheikha Aisha bint Faleh Al-Thani, Chair of the WCMP.
