The Islamic Zakaat Fund (IZF) under the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) has sounded an SOS (Save our Soul) calling on the Muslim community to make donations towards the fund.
Speaking at a conference held in Blantyre on Saturday, acting chairman of IZF, Kassam Okhai said it is time that the Islamic Community should understand the significance of charity and donate to the fund to ease its activities of supporting students with their education locally and internationally.
The Islamic Zakaat Fund was founded in 1991 to support needy Muslim youth with education bursaries and scholarships.
Generally, IZF contributes to student’s expenses such as tuition fees, examination fees, accommodation, transport, permit fees, medication expenses as well as monthly allowances for those who are abroad.
Since its registration in 1991, over 1,500 IZF sponsored students have graduated and are holders of different senior positions.
Currently, IZF is sponsoring over 300 continuing students at the University of Malawi (UNIMA) and other local colleges including over 500 students in secondary schools across the country.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
