PAAMA USA is led by a National President, three Vice Presidents and a National Executive, as well as Regional Presidents and their Executives. The women have a parallel structure led by the National Lajna President who is also under the leadership of the National PAAMA President.
PAAMA is fortunate to be under the direct supervision and guidance of the Supreme Head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community – His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands), who takes a keen interest in the affairs of the Association.
The purpose of the Association is to unite and reactivate Ahmadi Muslims whose ethnic identity represents the African Diaspora. With hundreds of such Ahmadis spanning the United States, PAAMA aims to engage its members in spiritual, social, and service activities that unify and support the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and its mission.
We seek to develop a mixture of religious and secular activities for the moral and spiritual upbringing of our youth. PAAMA provides a platform for its members to grow and develop in the spiritual, moral and social realms, thereby becoming successful members of the Community and society, and to cultivate qualities such as piety, righteousness, honesty, service and justice.
Externally, PAAMA stands with and supports other organizations that share similar values and visions. PAAMA’s spirit of service to humanity and commitment to justice and equity is guided by the motto of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’.
