Why Zakat Foundation?
ZF is unique among humanitarian organizations in advancing zakat as a vehicle for social change. The third pillar of Islam, zakat is an obligatory claim on the wealth of the affluent to empower the indigent. ZF channels this egalitarian spirit of zakat into a global vision of social development that transcends national boundaries, and stands as the foremost authority on interpreting zakat as a factor for positive change.
ZF strives to be an exceptional relief and development organization utilizing sustainable methods, while modeling the spirit of cooperative internationalism that will be essential in an increasingly unstable world.
As a direct result of its reputation for path-breaking humanitarianism with a global vision, ZF is rapidly growing in reach and capacity. Every year brings new projects that expand the scope of our work and deepen its impact on the communities we serve.
The loss of one or both parents as a result of war, illness, or natural disaster is a traumatic and harsh reality for millions of children worldwide. Through our Orphan Sponsorship Program, ZF’s goal is to provide care and assistance to those children who have lost their parents’ love and support, allowing them to thrive and receive an education.
With your assistance, ZF’s Orphan Sponsorship Program provides orphaned children with hope, love and prospects for the future by striving to give them everything they need to succeed.
