“The (Muslim) community is relatively poor, more illiterate, has lower access to education, lower representation in public- and private-sector jobs and lower availability of bank credit for self- employment. In urban areas, the community mostly lives in slums characterized by poor municipal infrastructure.” – Assessment by Indian Prime Minister’s Office. The New York Times, November 29, 2006
We provide scholarships and support for deserving students from elementary to university level.
Apart from the scholarship programs, we have launched two projects to make a measurable, long term impact on the community.
In order to bring quality education to children, we built Challenger International School on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
In Barabanki, one of the most economically backward regions in India near Lucknow, we built Jahangirabad Institute of Technology. Jahangirabad Media Institute (JMI) on this campus is producing results already. Watch an award winning 13 minute documentary on your right made by a female student of JMI. You will see that all we need to do is provide a stepping stone for the young Muslims, deep in poverty but full of aspirations. Worth sharing with your friends and family!
