Al-Imdaad Foundation

Millions of children in the developing world are denied the benefits and opportunities that a good education offers. As a result, inequality, poverty and illiteracy continue to burden developing countries. The Al-Imdaad Foundation works within communities in South Africa to make education more widely available and affordable. Our projects include the building of crèches and schools, stationery provision, bursaries and scholarships and teacher training programmes.
