For 35 years, education has been at the heart of what we do. With your support we can give children and young people all over the world access to education and a future free from poverty.
From those who have lost their school due to the destruction of war, to displaced people in refugee camps, to rural areas where education is scarce – our Education programmes are global, benefiting those in need.
Farzana is a bright, cheerful girl of 8 years old. She lives in a rural region of Pakistan where literacy rates are low, particularly for women and girls. Her family did not allow her to attend school like her brother and she would often spend her day herding cows, longing to learn to read and write.
Muslim Aid implemented a community support programme and school management committee that worked with the parents of children in the area. Through information sessions, we were able to explain the importance of girls’ education and bring down the barriers preventing Farzana and many other girls like her, from attending school. Through toilet and water installation, the school is now much more accessible to young girls and Farzana loves to attend every day.
From rebuilding a demolished classroom, to providing uniforms, school meals, water stations, toilets, uniforms and books, you can break down barriers and inspire hope.
DONATE NOW to our Education programme and your zakat and sadaqah can make the world of difference to a young person.
