Working hands on to make a difference in the lives of the students, families and guests of Medina Baye. Organizing grassroots cleaning efforts, partnering with local businesses and associations, mentoring local students and even providing free or low cost English classes to local residents. 

Our goal is to directly assist as much as possible in the city particularly with the development of more updated accommodations and to help offset the  rising cost of maintenance on existing facilities. In addition our goal is to act as an ambassador to English travelers looking to visit or relocate to the city of our spiritual father. 

With a focus on clear English speaking media we plan to produce full length documentaries, television and web series, online print media, photo journalism accounts, news broadcasts as well as extensive social media coverage to encourage ongoing public interaction.

As students and alumni of the institutions of Medina Baye our mission is to increase global awareness and understanding of the Tariqqa Tijani by creating clear and professional quality media projects to display the beauty of the city and it's leaders. In addition our goal is to advance the Tariqqa and the Islamic Ummah by generating funds for the development and expansion of current projects to accommodate more students and international guests.  Lastly we plan to develop a concise, streamlined, arrangement assistance program to simplify the travel process for our visitors.‚Äč
