> Education Works
Read Foundation strongly believes in a world where education is accessible to all, because education is the weapon in the fight against poverty. Founded in Kashmir, it has been serving those in need for over two decades, and now operates in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Lebanon, Turkey and Yemen.
All of our projects ensure that the educational empowerment of marginalised communities is part of their central design. We are building and opening schools that provide an education to the world’s most vulnerable children, setting up mobile classrooms in refugee camps and conflict zones, offering one-to-one sponsorships for orphans, setting up shelters for homeless children in impoverished communities, and this is just the beginning.
Help us empower those in need.

The Importance of Zakat
It is more than just a portion of our income, Zakat is a fundamental pillar of our faith. When you give your Zakat through READ Foundation, it has the potential to uplift and transform the lives of those in need for years to come.
> There are more than 100 million children in the world who do NOT have access to an education. YOU are helping us change that. Here is how.
