The vision of Young Memons was to forge a new generation with positive values, great bonding, and high level of moral consciousness.
It was understood from the very beginning that the mission given to Young Memons can be achieved only by giving a proper orientation for the young members. For these young men, examples were to be shown in front of them, rather than doing mere gatherings and preaching of ideologies. With the intention of showing examples and making the young generation involved in the activities, we conducted many sports meets.
While a day in the cricket ground did well for the athletic abilities of the youngsters, they also developed a great bonding between themselves. They spent days together, not only on the cricket ground, but outside too, many days before and many days after. What was achieved was the cohesion that can be developed while working together for a common goal.
On 31st August 2014, three new committee members were included as below to add on the existing committee and bring the final figure of the panel to nine.
- Janaab Anwar Abdul Rahiman
- Janaab Sajith Sait A.
- Janaab Wajid Sait
