Why Zakat Foundation



At 151 million, the global orphan population is exploding. Zakat Foundation is expanding its Orphan Sponsorship Program and care for the helpless with your generous support.

The loss of one or both parents as a result of war, illness, or natural disaster is a traumatic and harsh reality for millions of children worldwide. Through this Orphan Sponsorship Program, Zakat Foundation’s goal is to provide care and assistance to those children who have lost their parents’ love and support, allowing them to thrive and receive an education.

Zakat Foundation uses zakat as a vehicle for social change. The third pillar of Islam, zakat is an obligatory claim on the wealth of the affluent to empower the indigent. Zakat Foundation channels this egalitarian spirit of zakat into a global vision of social development that transcends national boundaries, and stands as the foremost authority on interpreting zakat as a factor for positive change.

As a direct result of its reputation for path-breaking humanitarianism with a global vision, Zakat Foundation is rapidly growing in reach and capacity. Every year brings new projects that expand the scope of our work and deepen its impact on the communities we serve.

With your assistance, Zakat Foundation’s Orphan Sponsorship Program provides orphaned children with hope, love and prospects for the future by striving to give them everything they need to succeed.
