Values

Sincerity
In responding to poverty and suffering, our efforts are driven by sincerity to God and the need to fulfil our obligations to humanity.

Social Justice
Our work is founded on enabling people and institutions to fulfil  the rights of people who are poor and vulnerable. We work to empower the dispossessed towards realizing their God-given human potential and developing their capabilities and resources.

Compassion
We believe the protection and well-being of every life is of paramount importance and we shall join with other humanitarian actors to act as one in responding to suffering brought on by disasters, poverty and injustice.

Custodianship
We uphold our duty of custodianship over the earth, its resources and the trust people place in us as humanitarian and development practitioners to be transparent and accountable.

Excellence
Our actions in tackling poverty are marked by excellence in our operations and conduct which is deserving of the people we serve.

What we do

Mission

Exemplifying our Islamic values, we will mobilize resources, build partnerships, and develop local capacity as we work to:

  1. Enable communities to mitigate the effect of disasters, prepare for their occurrence and respond by providing relief, protection and recovery.
  2. Promote integrated development and environmental custodianship with a focus on sustainable livelihoods .
  3. Support people who are marginalized and vulnerable to voice their  needs and address root causes of poverty.

We allocate these resources regardless of race, political affiliation, age, gender, abilities or belief, and without expecting anything in return.
