Giving your children the education you never had is challenging.
By contributing to our creative livelihood initiatives, you can help us break the cycle and benefit from this unique projects’ many rewards.
We favour giving individuals the tools they need to assist themselves. We try to provide individuals with access to sustainable means of sustaining themselves and their communities because, motivated by our religion, we believe that all people have a right to the provisions that God has given to them.
Our livelihood programmes are tailored to the particular requirements of the communities we work with and range from giving young people vocational training to giving farming families access to crops and equipment to enable them to sustain their lives and develop.
Our livelihood programmes provide people with the training and the means to sustainably lifting themselves out of poverty. Not only this, but in some regions we also provide direct opportunities of employment. With your help, we can ensure more people are able to work themselves out of poverty and reduce their dependence on charity.
The Prophet, on him be peace, famously said: “When a human being dies, all one's deeds cease, save three: a Sadaqah Jariyah, [religious] knowledge [one leaves behind] from which others benefit, and a righteous child who prays for one”
