Abstract
The Muslim Women’s Institute for Research and Development (MWIRD) is a faith-based, community-service organization located in the Highbridge section of the Southwest Bronx. This project shifts the paradigm of local human service to community members from the broken body in recovery, to the healing spirit of resilience, by empowering clients to resolve their problems. It develops a leadership training model that cultivates and crafts strategies for full citizenship in participants, enabling them to resist power-structures that perpetuate injustice and inequity.
