Educate a Girl Zakaat - Introduction

By Mehwish Ayyub | Supervisor

Zakat is the name of what a Muslim returns out of his or her wealth to the neediest of Muslims for the sake of ALLAH. Its called "Zakaat" because the word is from "Zakaa"" which means to increase, purify and Muslim believe that by donating this money, their wealth will increase and will be purified and Educate a Girl Zakaat is a special project by Educate a Girl which mainl focus on the tuition fee of young girls.

As Educate a Girl is more focused in Girl education but under it we educate girls vocationally and the girls are usually 18-24 years old but Educate a girl Zakaat is for young girls age 4-16 to help them stay in their schools so they could get proper education which further will help them in achieving their dreams.

Girls who are from underserved, lower and middle class backgrounds, lack access to affordable, quality education. Some girls are often unable to continue or afford their studies due to loss of their homes from poverty, terrorism and communal feuds. Some fathers who have lost their jobs or businesses and/or have limited funds, will likely educate only the sons.

We at Educate a Girl couldn’t wait to transform more lives and adding more and more girls in our community to help them achieve their dreams but that’s need a lot of preparation and also support that we seek from our wonderful donors, so we could transform the lives of these girls.


Together we are transforming lives
