“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”-Nelson Mandela
Since its inception, the World Memon Organisation has been striving to promote education in the Memon community. WMO has been providing financial assistance to the underprivileged segment of the community for the edification of their children. Enabling them to stand up on their feet, support their families and contribute to society.
However as a large portion of funds available within the organisation are zakat based, only those members of the community benefit who are compliant under the sharia for zakat assistance.
Due to the steep rise in the cost of education, the middle income group of the community too, has been facing formidable challenges to sustain the expenditures towards education. To meet the growing financial requirements of this strata of society, WMO has created The World Memon Organisation EDUCATION ENDOWMENT FUND based on non Zakat contributions.
Donors can endorse the program by acquiring certificates worth USD $5000 (five thousand dollars) each. WMO hopes to collect USD $3,000,000 (three million dollars) through the distribution of 600 certificates.
WMO has also issued special certificates wherein you can donate towards the cause on the memorable occasion of a marriage in the family. A sizeable sum is spent on weddings but just a fraction of the amount can set up a child for life. Bless the couple who are getting united in holy matrimony by supporting this noble cause. A perfect gift for your children and the community.
We acknowledge the sterling efforts of Mr. Peer Mohammed Diwan for pioneering the project and leading from the front. As he emphasises, “I would rather bless my children with eternal happiness by gifting an education to deserving members of my community than spend the same amount on an extravagant, lavish ceremony to mark their marriage. After all an education is for life, just as Allah willing their bond of marriage.”
A thought provoking statement from a great humanitarian who has spent a better part of his life serving mankind.
