As an issue that had originally been brought up by Kuwait and Saudi Arabian students at Boise State almost six years ago, the need for a private, accessible place to pray is not a new topic.
Since then, the Inclusive Excellence Student Council took the idea of the need for a prayer space and did what we do best, made it more inclusive.
The Resiliency Room will be a place for students of all origins and beliefs to meditate, pray, reflect and/or simply breathe.
With that, we need your help to make sure this space is filled with the proper materials to adequately function as an environment that prioritizes mindfulness for everyone. The importance of mental health has often been overlooked so the Resiliency Room will aim to cater to this aspect that our university desperately needs to fulfill for our students, staff and faculty.
Our initial $10,000 goal will help accommodate for items such as beads, prayer rugs/mats/pads, books, and other miscellaneous materials folks need to properly utilize the space. After achieving this goal, we hope to raise another $10,000 to include a wash station in the space.
With your donations we are able to provide a safe and clean environment with materials to help folks recenter themselves and nourish their well being in order to take on the future of tomorrow.
