We are looking to secure  job opportunities for young people (aged 16-29 years old) in the next few weeks. If your not in employment, education (looking to leave school/University this year) then keep your eyes open 🤓
Brother Selvi Shakirov just ordered 10
Boxes for his family in Bulgaria. Allahuma barik. We have now pre-sold more than half of all of our dates Alhamdulillah

A reminder that you can pick up our 800g or 5kg boxes tomorrow from YYI, 34 Bellfield street, Dundee. DD1 5HZ from 12pm-1pm. 

Whether you have pre-ordered or not, come along and pick up your dates. Remember you can donate your donates for the Iftar project too.

All those who have ordered are requested to pick up their orders from YYI, 34 Bellfield street, DD1 5HZ on Saturday between 12 and 1pm. Raheel Khan will be on site. 

If you haven’t ordered already you can just turn up and purchase there. 

There will be social distancing and contactless arrangements during pick up. You can also pay online. 

Lastly, as there will be no iftar arrangements in the Mosques during Ramadan, the iftar project will be led by some of the Masjids. If you would like to donate a box (or two) towards this then this can be arranged too!

Zaytoun Medjoul dates are freshly harvested from sun-drenched Palestinian farms around the ancient city of Jericho, an occupied area where vast tracts of land have been illegally confiscated by the Israeli government.

When you choose Zaytoun Medjoul dates, you are helping Palestinian families to make a sustainable living and to grow trade opportunities so they can retain their own land in the Jordan Valley, while facing the daily struggles of living under military occupation and the threat of expanding Israeli settlements.

We have our annual stock coming in March in time for Ramadan.  They always go fast so please get your orders in to myself or PM the YYI FB page before there's none left.

5kg Jumbo £50 *
800g Jumbo £12 *

Preparing for Ramadan, supporting your Palestinian brothers and sisters and also supporting your local charity YYI simply by buying one or more boxes from us, it's a win win all round 😍❤

* All proceeds go to YYI New building fund

For a number of years YYI and a number of charities have been using space at Dunsinane Avenue that was kindly donated where we only contributed towards utility costs. 

Unfortunately (fortunately for them) they have sold the building and want entry in two weeks. This means YYI needs to relocate all our food stock for the Foodbank, bikes, furniture, and office space for 8 staff to a new site. 

If anyone know of spaces in Dundee. Even a small unit that has just warehouse space where we can store our bikes and food please get in touch
