World Assembly of Muslim Youth
The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) is a global network of organizations dedicated to helping young Muslims become positively engaged in their societies; it also works to provide an accurate image of Islam in interreligious dialogue. In addition to providing camps and trips for Muslim youth, WAMY holds events on pertinent issues and produces informational materials about Islamic beliefs and practices. It is affiliated with the United Nations. The organization has come under scrutiny because of significant financial support from Saudi Arabia and its links to the bin Laden family. Its American office was closed by the United States government, but the majority of WAMY branches remain open; WAMY's English website is run by the United Kingdom branch.
