Madrasahs, along with maktabs (or kuttab), trace their traditions back through nearly a thousand years of Islamic learning. Till today, they remain the single most vital tool for preserving Prophetic knowledge and cultivating it amongst the masses of the Ummah.

Ummah Welfare Trust continues to support and strengthen these indispensable institutions. Through subsidies, renovations and sponsorship programmes, the charity has helped establish hundreds of madrassahs and maktabs in recent years, alhamdulillah.

‘The world is cursed and what is in it is cursed, except the remembrance of Allah and what facilitates that, or one who has knowledge or one who seeks knowledge.’
[Ibn Majah]

What Are the Needs in Sierra Leone?

Comprehensive education that caters to the beliefs and values of these children.

2

Children in the poorest regions of the world grow up illiterate and struggle to meet modern demands.

Poverty means many families cannot afford good schooling for their children who inevitably suffer later in their lives.
