~ Young Adult Scholarship Fund History ~
Jasmine Fry, whom the Fund is dedicated to, daughter of Durga Heather Winfrey, Jazzy – as her friends called her, came as a child many times to Sufi camps on Maui.
She reconnected with the Ruhaniat Sufis in her late teens, traveled to Mendocino Youth Retreat, and became impassioned about youth camps happening in the Hawaiian Islands, knowing that youths could benefit so much from the depth of experience in practice and in kinship that she had experienced……….
A short time later, her life in the body, was taken from her. We deeply honor her intention to “make it happen”, which added to Sufis Hawaii’s inspiration to manifest the youth fund for our Maui Camps.
