Mahinur Jahid

»Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe...«  Quote from Winston Churchill

Inspiration is something or someone who inspires others to strive for something spectacular. That kind of inspiration is needed to bring out the best in oneself. Genius involves majority of perspiration, dedication and hardcore efforts while a small credit always goes to inspiration. Anyone or anything in your vicinity can inspire you to work for achievement and give your heart and soul to it. When we are facing hardships, any inspiring force gives us the momentum to turn the tide in our favour...

Our organization was founded in February 8, 2012 in memory of Mahinur Jahid, who died in a car accident in January 2012 in the city of Lloydminster of Alberta at the age of 27.

Mahinur was an inspiration for the people in his environment with a big heart for his parents and family. He was connected with the community, engaged with sports and culture, and a young trade technician.

His memory shall live on through the efforts of this organization to provide young people with education, cultural and sports activities in the context of communality.

The Mahinur Jahid Memorial Foundation (MJMF) has introduced its own magazine called UNITE, which was released in a first edition on June 16, 2014 at the official inauguration event in Edmonton, Alberta. It is planned to publish the magazine at least once a year.
