African Scholarship Campaign: Support one of the 340 Million Muslims in Africa

1 Million Scholarships for African Youths by 2020 Challenge

Alhamdulilah, this Ramadhan 2017 you helped us raise over $200,000 for African students to attend school. We are continuing this noble endeavor  for the 2017 year to send a total of 1,000 students to school. Your donations help pave the way for a students future.

The fundamental idea is that of providing scholarships for the impoverished and disenfranchised youths (male and female) who are currently being drawn into extremist violent groups like Boko Haram, Shabaab, Taliban, ISIS and Abu Sayyaaf, etc., and making them a part of tangible positive change in the continent and in the course of world history.


1 Million Scholarships For 10 English Speaking African Countries (Gambia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Somalia, South Sudan)

2017 1,000 $560,000 ($56,000 per country)
2018 10,000 $5,600,000 ($560,000 per country)
2019 100,000 $56,000,000 ($5.6 Million per country)
2020 1,000,000 $560,000,000 ($56 Million per country)

We look forward to a favorable response of wholehearted support for our dream which we have already launched in the Gambia this year, and are about to launch in Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria and Somalia, al hamdu lillaah.
