Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Research / statisticscenter_img The Centre for the Study of Islam at the University of Glasgow is hosting a conference to launch the findings of its study of the charitable habits of British Muslims and the effects their giving had on aiding or promoting social justice philanthropy.The Centre’s research is part of an international project entitled “Philanthropy for Social Justice in Muslim Societies”. “Social justice philanthropy” is defined as the granting of philanthropic contributions to non-profit organisations that work for structural change in order to increase the opportunity of those who are the least well off politically, economically and socially.The Centre hopes the conference will discuss ways of mobilising and facilitating philanthropic activities in British society in general and British Muslim societies in particular in support of local social justice initiatives.

Gerrard hails fantastic Aribo in Scottish Cup win

first_imgRangers Boss, Steven Gerrard, has applauded Joe Aribo for the quality produced in the Midfielder’s goal as The Gers steamrolled past Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Cup on Saturday. He scored (68′), his first in two appearance in the Cup, to restore the lead before Alfredo Morelos (85′) and Scott Arfield (90+2′) completed the rout. In his post-match reaction, Gerrard described his team heavy victory as “flattering”. “I thought how we went about trying to create chances here was very good and very impressive. We put a lot of talent on the pitch so we expected that, though I was disappointed with us in the first half defensively in-terms of our organisation and our balance behind the ball which led to them getting a few chances and scoring against us. “So that was the thing I had to address at half-time – I had to rattle a few cages at half-time and get them switched on and focused and in the right place defensively. “Once we did that, we played some nice stuff and we went on to create a lot of chances and scored some really impressive goals.” Speaking on the goals scored he said, “I was very, very impressed. The Joe Aribo goal was fantastic with Ryan Kent going on the outside and doing what he does with fantastic skill and an excellent assist, but that is still a tough finish so credit to Joe there.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Gerrard watched with slight disappointment as his side struggled to convert chances created in the first half at Fountain of Youth Stadium. The 33 times champions were held 1-1 by the hosts and perhaps it was much to the delight of the home crowd among the 4,050 spectators in the bleachers. But the second half was a different tale and the visitors wrote the most of that adventure, putting three goals past the opposition; Aribo with one of them. Not known for his goalscoring prowess at the Scottish Club, Aribo has managed just two goals in the league, two in the League and Scottish Cups. He scored three more in the Europa League, but has made 39 appearances across all competitions this campaign.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoInsane 3D Spraying Skills Turn In Incredible Street ArtYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty Penny10 Gorgeous Asian Actresses No Man Can Resist6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooThe Most Clever Uses Of CGI In Cinema7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombslast_img read more
