Islamic Relief is committed to breaking the
cycle of poverty.
A farmer who can read can make sure nobody takes advantage of him, and sell his crops at a higher price. A girl who is educated has access to more opportunity and often has more power in society.
Islamic Relief builds and rehabilitates schools, stocking and equipping them with everything they need to provide quality teaching.
We also work with adults, teaching them in ways that work best for their situation and culture – for example, in Afghanistan, women gather in one another’s homes to learn, so they feel comfortable and safe in their learning space.
