On June 28th, over 70 residents from NeighborWorks® Boise's Northwest Pointe affordable apartment community and other Boise community members came together to celebrate the end of the month of Ramadan, a period of fasting observed by Muslims.
Teen resident, Adhego spoke about the importance of Ramadan, and attendees brought food to share and enjoyed dancing.
This resident-driven event was coordinated by Adey, NWB resident leader and recipient of the 2017 Success & Integration Award at the Idaho Conference on Refugees this past February. Her goal for this event was to make the Muslim residents feel welcome and educate others about Ramadan.
Thank you to Adey and all of the volunteers who made this fun event a success!
