The Al-Ansari Foundation

Charity description

The Al-Ansari Foundation logo
We are a registered charity based in the UK. We are committed to supporting children in rural Africa and have been operating in the region since 2010. Our work is based on Zanzibar Island in Tanzania, Africa, from where we run our projects. We are an orphan-focused charity and have a dedicated team in Zanzibar, who ensure that the money we raise in donations is spent on children in accordance to their needs.

We specialise in orphans, investing in their education and building homes for them. Amongst our recent projects we have completed madrasahs in Zingezingewe and Kizimkazi. In January 2014 we opened an orphan school, where children were previously studying under make-shift shelters and trees.

We also run a busy feed the poor programme feeding thousands throughout the year in Zanzibar and on other islands in the region. In addition, we have sponsor an orphan programme, and have completed several water projects in Meya, Tumbattu and Kasuni.

Through our work we have (by the grace of Allah) fundamentally transformed the lives of children, whom we support and ultimately work for. We have a 100% donation policy. We accept Zakah, Sadaka, and Fidya. Support us and support children who need your help.
