With Educate a Girl Zakaat, our model is simple. We use the Zakaat donations to pay tuition for deserving girls in need.
We go to underprivileged areas and ask the schools for lists of students struggling to pay tuition and we pay it for them.
Ayela, 8, is a star math student and dreams of being an engineer once she’s older. But her family struggles to pay basic bills including her school tuition. She fears they will pull her out of school if they cannot afford it. Educate a Girl Zakaat saved the day by paying her entire year’s tuition, without asking for a cent back. She feels like the luckiest girl alive.
