Mission, Vision & Objectives

Arkan Toledo's Mission is encapsulated by its motto: "Inspired by knowledge, shaped by understanding". Arkan Toledo has been established to serve the Australian Muslim community, to help it achieve its full potential, which is ultimately in the interests of the broader Australian society. There are so many paths to achieve this same purpose, and there are dozens of Muslim organisations with hundreds if not thousands of dedicated volunteers that are all doing valuable work to help improve the lives of their fellow Muslims and fellow Australians. Arkan Toledo's particular focus will be on the dissemination of knowledge about Islam to build a more holistic and purposeful sense of Australian Muslim identity, an identity that is shaped and enriched by understanding the important contributions of all sections of society.  

Our Vision is to make Islamic SRI available to every Muslim student attending Victorian state schools.

Arkan Toledo is the official provider of Islamic Special Religious Instruction (SRI) at Victorian state schools. In relation to this very important program, our main Objectives are to: 

  • Raise awareness within the community about SRI, and the opportunity for state school students to receive Islamic religious instruction on a weekly basis during school hours.
  • Manage all aspects of the Islamic SRI program, including the standard Program Material, the recruitment and accreditation of Volunteer Instructors, and the coordination of lesson schedules with schools.
  • Work with other SRI Providers, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD), and other key stakeholders to identify and implement opportunities to enhance the SRI experience for students, parents, and schools.
