NWJH athletes need sports hijabs to be able to participate comfortably in after-school sports.

A number of young women who attend NWJH are Muslim, and they often wear a headscarf or hijab. These women see covering their heads as an outward sign of faith.

Our students often wear the same hijab in class as they do to participate in after-school sports. This can sometimes be uncomfortable when their head coverings are not specifically designed to be worn for sports. They get hot and sweaty, and they sometimes come undone, causing these young women to not participate fully as they stop mid-stride to redo their headscarves.

Sports hijabs would help our Muslim women athletes to stay comfortable while participating in sports. Sports hijabs are made to breathe and move with an athlete, allowing her to participate fully without fear of it falling off. And, a sports hijab is a safer option, as it doesn’t require pins to secure.

This pilot project would enable our Muslim women athletes at NWJH to have an opportunity to participate in sports to the best of their ability.

We are looking to raise funds to purchase 30 hijabs before the end of winter break, so they can be used by the 7th and 8th grade girls basketball teams.  We are working with Asiya Sports Hijabs to make that possible.

We plan to purchase 30 hijabs.  Asiya Sports provides a 15% discount for orders over 25.  We will pay $29.75/hihab plus $29.95 shipping.  That brings our total for this project to $922.45. Budgeting for the fees associated with using this platform brings our goal to $979.

Thank you all for supporting this important project! I am stunned and amazed by your generosity. Charity and I were so excited to get moving on it yesterday and I am thrilled that the idea excited you too. I'm also in awe that it took less than 24 hours to get this need met! Charity, thank you for recognizing the need, figuring out how to get it done, and getting the word out. You are amazing.

The sports hijabs have been ordered and we'll share an update as the girls put them to use.

Thank you again,
Jill
