When a person dies, his works end, except for three: ongoing charity, knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.” (Muslim, Al-Tirmidhi, others)
The definition of sadaqah is charity in Islam, but what does charity mean to READ Foundation?
It means giving an opportunity to someone in poverty through the tools of education. We are passionate about helping the less fortunate especially orphans and vulnerable children. Its our mission to support them, and the best way to do it is through education.
One of the big difference in our approach, we believe in learning through play. Education has to be fun. The lives they live is really difficult, and the children are forced to grow up too quickly.
Your sadaqah starts the process of change for the people we care for. It has a lifelong impact on a child’s economic, mental, physical and social development. Essentially prepares them to become future leaders.
It takes a village to raise a child, you can be part of that village, the part that helps its youngsters to learn and create a stronger, happier global village.
