Ma'din Academy, a renowned educational institution based in Malappuram, is set to participate in a series of events at the United Nations headquarters in New York, coinciding with the 2023 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit and the UN General Assembly.
Umer Melmuri, director of the International Interfaith Harmony Initiative and Global Relations, will attend special programmes on Wednesday and Thursday at the UN.
