Build a School

Zakat Applicable

Here at Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we believe that education is a vital way to help break the cycle of poverty which affects so many people around the world. Our team work to support vulnerable people in need by providing access to essential education.

Sadly, education is still one of the most underfunded segments of humanitarian aid – we aspire to change that.

We are also proud to support several schools in Gaza, Pakistan and Bangladesh. In addition, as part of our Mission Possible campaign, we support hundreds of pupils each year. The program operates by providing children with school supplies such as stationery, books and bags as well as staffing the schools with a dedicated team of volunteers.

Our enthusiastic team of architects and builders are on hand to oversee the construction of each new school we build. When you consider the fact that many of our school buildings are constructed on hilly or mountainous terrain, their feats seem even more impressive.

It takes just £6,000 to build a rural primary school – doesn’t every child deserve the right to an education?

Learning takes place throughout life, which is why we are also committed to providing access to training programs and adult education in Bangladesh and Pakistan. Our Livelihood Project includes training on business, accountancy and essential vocational skill; designed to teach people how to become self-employed.

However, we don’t just build new schools; our team is also committed to renovating existing school buildings to provide children with a better learning environment. The renovation works we carry out will create a nicer classroom space for existing pupils while also expanding the school’s capacity to enable more children to attend in the future.

Overall, our schools provide access to education and nourishment for over 1,600 children. We also offer free health check-ups and psychological support to ensure these children are in the best possible position to enjoy a brighter future.

It only costs £2,000 to renovate a school. Al Mustafa Welfare Trust needs your generous support to ensure these children can reach their full potential.
