During this holy month of Ramadan, many muslims spend time in reflection and prayer. Along with fasting during the month, charitable giving is observed by muslims all over the world. This charity is called zakaat. Thaakat Foundation’s annual zakaat campaign allows us to cover an entire year’s work at our project site, DREAMS Pakistan. At DREAMS, thousands of families live in the burning mountains of waste, in the city’s largest landfill. Many of these families work in the landfill in order to survive.
This year’s Zakaat funds cover the below:
– Food Relief for 2500 families
– General and emergency healthcare for students
– Medical center facilities
– All Girls / Womens Campus
– More than 60 teacher salaries
– Transportation, electricity, fuel
– Clean water pump and filtration
– College fund for Al-Khair students
Your tax-deductible gift will help provide an education to more than 1,100 students. It also provides them with food relief packs, counseling, emergent medical care, clean water and scholarships.
Together, we can give hope to these children who hope to one day, have a future outside of these landfills.
Thaakat Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3). Gifts are 100% tax-deductible. All donations are processed securely.
PLEASE NOTE: FOR DONATIONS HIGHER THAN $500, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND REQUEST YOU USE PAYPAL TO MAKE YOUR DONATIONS (Paypal Button Below).
*Thaakat Foundation is a non-political, non-religious organization; however, we do collect and distribute Zakaat as appropriate for our DREAMS for Kachra Kundi school site in Karachi, Pakistan. Zakaat is an obligatory charitable donation Muslims make on 2.5% of their wealth.
